Remember the days before Pinterest? Before Etsy? When people went to craft fairs to buy handmade goods and get ideas? No? Well this weekend is your chance to experience it (or re-live it). And don't worry, this isn't your grandmother's craft fair — it's the Atomic Holiday Bazaar.
Every December, indie crafters, artists and creatives, both local and visiting, set up shop at the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium to sell the area's most eclectic, modern and downright hip arts and crafts.
If you're looking for custom-made clothing, one-of-a-kind leather wallets, hand-blown glass, or maybe just something unique for that hard-to-please person on your Christmas-shopping list, this bazaar is the place to be.
Plus, the first 100 people get a free swag-stuffed tote bag, and shoppers can enjoy eats from one of several on-site food trucks as well as live music by DJ Iche.
If you go:
Atomic Holiday Bazaar — takes place from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 6 and Sunday, Dec. 7, at the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium. $5 for adults. Free for children ages 12 and younger.
