This year marks the sixth anniversary for Craftstravaganza, an awesome springtime urban craft show. Here you'll find bits and baubles from more than 70 talented artists and craftsmen. New items this year include vegan lipstick by the Elixery, cloth diapers from Juicy Toots, and hip vinyl wallets from Innad. Returning vendors include the impossibly cute Fantastic Toys (doe-eyed plushies!), bad-ass posters from Lonny Unitus, and unique lamps from Ink Orchard. Folks looking to get crafty themselves will be able to partake in workshops throughout the day, including a spinning demonstration and teddy bear creations led by members of the Textile Center, and book and button making with MN Center for Book Arts. Visit craftstravaganza.com for more info. (Suction art by Ugly Baby)
