Around Town : Holiday Craft Sale!

Posted by

It's a VERY busy week for us because we're getting ready for a big event this weekend, our first Holiday Craft Sale. It's being held at our offices here in Chelsea, and is open to the public this Saturday from 12 - 6. Many employees here at Martha (including just about every contributor to this blog) will be selling their own handmade crafts. It really is going to be great holiday shopping - there will be ceramics, knit items, clothing, accessories, toys, stationery, ornaments, jewelry, and tons of other great stuff. There will also be many talented vendors from our larger craft community selling their work. Some other highlights: a "craft walk", where participants can win prizes donated by each crafter, with all proceeds going to benefit the George Washington Carver Residence in New York City. There will be food and drinks, and some of our food editors here at the magazine will be selling their own packaged treats.

We're also working hard this week to set up a gallery of many of the projects we featured in the 'Holidays from A - Z' from our December issue.  If you are in New York this weekend, we hope you'll come see us!

  • Oh! sooooo sorry! I was in NYC last week. . . .I'd love to check out the work of the talented crafts staff at MS Crafts and meet some of you guys in person!

    Maybe next year?? Maybe a little more advance notice of your plans. . .

    I'm sure it will be a fun-filled event--hope you'll post photos later.

  • Wish I could fly from Australia to be there. Martha fans know that the craft dept team are responsible for some of the most inspiring projects that most of us have attempted over the years - it would be great to meet you all! (now I better get back to glittering my cinnamon birds!)

  • Oh how I would love to be there!! How exciting!!

  • I AM SO EXCITED! I was given the day off from work, so I can come to the sale! It will be wonderful to meet The Crafts Dept. folks and admire (and buy) their creations in person. Thank you to all at MSLO who are responsible for opening this year's sale to the public. I can't wait 'til Saturday!

  • I am suffering here. I wish I could fly to NY, I have never been there. Going to the Martha Stewart Craft Sale and show would be a dream come true.

    Happy shopping! :)

  • I totally need to take a trip to the big apple!

  • This sounds fantastic. Thanks!

  • Decisions, Decisions....I live in Tennesse, but will be in New Jersy on Saturday for a wedding. Craft Fair or Wedding. AHHHHHH

  • Hi A few of us are going to visit the craftfair on Saturday. Is there an entry fee?

  • [...] and my good self braved the rainy/snowy NYC afternoon today and headed over to the very first Holiday Craft Sale featuring items made by several employees of Martha [...]

  • I went to this today and it was a lot of fun. There was so really interesting stuff being sold and I bought a few things. I bought the pimento cheese after tasting it and i was fantastic! also pickup fresh bake cookies and a few of Martha Stewart things being sold at her shop.

  • The MSLO craft sale might be my new favorite thing about New York at Christmas. I think it is A MUST for Martha, craft and Christmas fans. Loads of crafts, food, inspiring displays and people from the magazine; people and crafts from TV.
