CELEBRATE WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH AND THE COMING OF SPRING WITH THE NEW
ORLEANS CRAFT MAFIA AT THE CRESCENT CITY CRAFT MARKET, SUNDAY MARCH
11TH, 2007

Hot on the heels of a feature write-up in the March issue of Antigravity Magazine and several members’ mentions in the Saturday, March 3rd edition of the Times-Picayune, the New Orleans Craft Mafia’s new monthly indie/alternative art and craft bazaar The Crescent City Craft Market is back for a March installment, celebrating Women’s History Month as well as the coming of one of our favorite seasons in New Orleans, Spring. Springtime fashions, jewelry, accessories, home décor and other handmade goods will abound.

Taking place on Sunday, March 11th, the same day we set our clocks ahead an hour to switch to Daylight Savings Time, the Crescent City Craft Market will be from 2-6pm at the Big Top art gallery (1638 Clio Street, off St. Charles near Lee Circle). DJ Lingerie will be spinning festive party tunes, and participating NOCM members include: art by mags!, Claverie Crafts, dismantled designs, greenKangaroo, and Unique Products, along with guest vendors Miss Karina, KOKO Crafts, Christine Wright, Patricia Loureiro, and  Inexplicable Confetti.

The Crescent City Craft Market takes place the second Sunday of every month  from 2-6pm at the Big Top, showcasing the handmade crafty wares of not only  the New Orleans Craft Mafia\’s own members, but also a rotating cast of guest  vendors from the city and beyond.

The goal of the CCCM is to offer an alternative to the more conventional,  upscale art markets around town, hopefully fostering more of sense of  community amongst up-and-coming, edgier artists, designers, indie crafters  and like-minded DIYers. Guest entertainers, snacks and other activities are  planned for each market, and it\’s always FREE to get in.

Future dates for the Crescent City Craft Market include April 8th and May  13th. Indie crafters, designers, artists and other DIY types interested in applying to be a guest vendor can fill out an application here:  http://www.neworleanscraftmafia.com/monthlymarketapplication.htm.

The New Orleans Craft Mafia formed in June 2005 and consists of several  independent artists in a variety of media: jewelry, clothing, accessories,  home decor, journals, and more. The group models itself after the original  Craft Mafia in Austin, Texas, where a small group of talented ladies joined  together to support each other in their crafty business endeavors. Interest  grew across the U.S. and Craft Mafias have been popping up all over the vendors Miss Karina, KOKO Crafts, Defend New Orleans, Christine Wright, Patricia Loureiro, and Inexplicable Confetti.
