Living close to Industry City has its perks. The second I found out that Bust Craftacular, an indie craft fair organized by Bust Magazine was happening at Industry City, I assembled an outfit, making sure to grab a fedora hat (fedora hat is like a requirement for entry to fairs/flea markets, am I right?), and dashed out the door.
Me and girlfriend, dashed so quickly that we forgot to have breakfast and only realized how starved we were when we got to Industry City. That provided an perfect opportunity to check out The Landing, a permanent installation at the Industry City; a vast cafe and community space that serves coffee and breakfast & lunch fare.
The super photogenic spaghetti was cooked a little too al dente for my taste, and the chicken sandwich was a little too filling for us, but overall, both dishes were delicious and definitely inspiring in terms of us going back there for more. Also, I now know where to go for lunch if I ever get sick of Chinese or Mexican cuisine in my area.
There were a lot of cool vendors and workshops going on at the fair, but I only snapped a few pictures because 1) modesty 2) busy restraining myself from buying everything.
Look at this beautiful stand from Morphologically, hand-crafted aromatherapy shop based in Brooklyn.
Delectable looking candy from Twizzles confectionary.
Couldn’t pass by this gorgeous bouquet and stand from Sweet Dish & Darling candle shop.
After a leisurely walk through the fair, we had time to take a few photos outside. I was wearing maxi skirt from ASOS (similar), a crop top from H&M (similar), these Target platforms, jean jacket from A&E (similar), a cross-body bag from Target, and fedora hat from god knows where.
These are my first flat platform sandals ever. I was a really apprehensive about them at first, and wasn’t sure if I could pull them off convincingly, but wow, I really love them! I can’t wait for summer to really kick in so I can wear them with everything. The fact that they are super comfortable is a huge plus.
