Holiday Craft Markets

Come visit me at the Holiday Booty Market

This Saturday, December 6, 2008 -- 12-6pm
Hilda's Giftshop in the National City Christian Church
5 Thomas Circle NW, Washington, DC
This event is sponsored by DEKKA, Miss Pixies, and Chiptole.

The Craft Mutiny Collective presents its 3rd annual Holiday Booty Market! This super fun event will be your chance to find that perfectly unique handmade gift before the holidays. Come and check out our indie craft event in the heart of Washington, D.C. Admission is free. Music and snacks provided! All you have to bring is your shopping list!!!


Twenty rad vendors from the Washington, D.C. area display their handmade goodies.

I draw, sew, and try to make something every day. I use my chronic doodling and collection of toys and pictures out of magazines and newspapers as inspiration. I am as equally influenced by graffiti in Paris and Philly as I am by artists like Chris Ware and Charles Burns. Tigerflight's Pirate Yeti is our show mascot!

El Jefe Design

El Jefe Design creates hand crafted art prints and concert posters for a variety of local and national acts including The Decemberists, Foo Fighters, Wilco, and The Raveonettes. Each poster is hand screen printed on recycled paper and done in limited editions.

De*nada Design
De*nada Design is a design boutique specializing in knits, bags and graphic tees that are comtemporary, fun and energetic.

60 Bugs
If you are a rad kid in D.C., it is likely that you are wearing something by 60 bugs. Debbie of 60 bugs loves the 80s, music, pop culture and DIYing, and likes to incorporate these themes into her embroidery and gocco printing.

Tina Seamonster
Tina Seamonster silk screens shirts and cards in small batches at her kitchen table with a Print Gocco. She is inspired by her life as an urban mom of twins in DC. Check out her new Grumpy Gnome line of cards and ornaments!

We thank DEKKA for being both a vendor and a sponsor of this event!

this chickadee
this chickadee is on a mission to create all sorts of magical things for you and your home. Aprons, totes, and table decorations are one-of-a-kind creations, stitched with love. The aim of this chickadee is to provide an alternative to mass-produced items and to inspire, educate and brighten.

bLuGrn design
My craft ranges from jewelry to paper goods and now baby onsies. My jewelry and paper goods consist of nature silhouettes, braille and the shark teeth i find on the chesapeak bay. My baby onsies (as well as some of my jewelry) was born from my new little mooshy gooshy boston pup, El guapo.

Pile of Craft
Pile of Craft turns colorful, bumpy, fuzzy handspun yarn into scarves,
hats, and handbags. She also creates unique and useful decorative items
out of custom-mixed polymer clay. She creates fuzzy tree cards and
other happy stationery sets, too!

Charming Vices
Charming Vices offers kitschy jewelry and accessories for guys and gals. I am compelled to recycle objects that need new lives into one of a kind creations.

Kristina Bilonick
My designs are derived from childhood memories, pop culture and a general nostalgia for the 70s and 80s. Hand printed on a mix of new and vintage apparel,kb designs add pizzaz to the dullest of wardrobes. Check out the accompanying line of glass accessories to complete the look!

8th Street Soap Kitchen
8th Street Soap Kitchen soaps are handcrafted with quality natural ingredients. Painstakingly made from scratch in small batches, these soaps lather richly, are naturally colored and carefully scented, and clean delightfully.

block party press
As with many artists, I have been drawing and making things for as long as I can remember. Sometimes my brain overflows with more ideas than my hands and my wallet can keep up with. I love texture, patterns, contrast, color (especially red, white & black and any pastel color paired with chocolate brown).

Kitten Rocks Well

Kitten Rocks Well features handmade nicnaks and stationary sets. Many of the sets are made using upcycled book and old magazine pages.

one-of-a-kind bags handmade with vintage/weird fabrics, screenprinted designs, reworked fashion finds, and various other inspirations.

Booklish Lady
Bookish Lady makes blank journals by hand, folding and stitching or gluing each page of every journal herself. She also tracks down antique letterpress blocks (or designs her own) and uses them to print the kind of cards she likes to send to her pals.
