Yesterday I posted an item about 3rd Ward’s Handmade Holiday Craft Fair. Thankfully fellow bloggess and Greenpointer, Bitchy Bluestocking, was kind enough to remind me that Cafe Grumpy will be throwing their Hearts & Crafts Affair this Sunday, December 13, from 12:00 – 6:00 p.m. She writes:

Don’t forget about Cafe Grumy’s Hearts and Crafts Affair on Sunday — though the flyer has a typo (Sat.) on it.

Truth be told, I did forget about this. I have been so busy of late I have forgotten about a great number of things. Thanks for the reminder Bitchy!

When I stumbled this novel solution to Greenpoint’s crack problem* (which hails from Meserole Avenue and comes courtesy of Cafe Grumpy) on Flickr I simply had to post it here. So I asked for permission to use it and they were kind enough to oblige. Thanks guys (and gals!)— this really made my day!

A Little Holiday Shopping

November 26, 2008 ·
Filed under: Bushwick, Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg 

After spending at least five hours in the kitchen yesterday and knowing full well I will be doing the same today suffice it to say yours truly is more than a little unmotivated. In any case follows are few upcoming holiday shopping events which might be of interest.

I have been long remiss in giving Tommy and Roy (AKA: the Alter boys) a shout out. Today I wish to correct this egregious oversight on my part by passing along the deets about their upcoming “Thanksgiving Weekend Sale”. And oh yeah, pointing out that I am totally in love with this item which I found on their web site. Check it out!

20% Off Sale At Alter
November 28-30th, 2008
140 Franklin Street
Brooklyn, New York 11222

This item comes courtesy of Bitchcakes. Cafe Grumpy will be hosting another “Hearts & Crafts” affair this holiday season. Hopefully I’ll make it to this one. If the wares for sale are even a fraction as nifty as their flier I am certain I will NOT be disappointed!

December 6 & 7, 2008, Noon – 6:00 p.m.

But back to events I have attended in previous years.

I purchased some incredibly fun items last year’s holiday craft fair. I will probably do so again this year. Take my word for it: this event is worth schlepping over to 195 Morgan Avenue.

Last up, the Gift On Grand will be throwing another giftstravaganza at Secret Project Robot. My advice about this event: ARRIVE EARLY. It gets packed.

Now back to the kitchen I go…
