After a hop-skip across the East River to Brooklyn last year, the Degenerate Craft Fair will return to NYC’s DCTV firehouse venue on December 14 & 15. With lots of gifts to give in December and lots of fairs to choose from also, DCF is usually small with a solid selection of vendors to choose from and I always walk away with one or two gifts that I wouldn’t have found anywhere else.
The DCF transcends the line between art and craft, showcasing artists selling affordable versions of their work, dedicated craftmakers who take unconventional approaches toward traditional techniques, and even small independent businesses that produce their own honey, lotions, and soaps.
DCF will take place at 87 Lafayette Street between Walker and White Streets.
The hours are: December 14 from 12pm-9pm with an opening night reception from 6pm-9pm including free music and beer. December 15 from 11am-6pm with the first 50 guests receiving a free tote of goodies.
