Shop handmade apparel, accessories, home décor, jewelry and more. There will be demonstrations and workshops, such as a hand-sewing shoe workshop for kids and several jewelry making workshops.

Over 250 east coast vendors will make their way to Chelsea, offering crafted goods from dolls to soap to cufflinks. Shoppers can also enjoy the pop up food court, raffle, and daylong DJ. If you’re looking for something really memorable, adopt a pet or at least cuddle with one at the S.N.A.R.R Pooch Room. Several vendors will also offer craft making tutorials.
