All Crafts Considered – NPR’s Own Craft Fair
NPR is hosting its first public craft fair, All Crafts Considered, on Dec. 11. Having just moved into its new home in NoMa this summer, NPR is excited to open its doors at The Commons to holiday shoppers and browsers for the first time this season. About two dozen local vendors will set up shop in their lobby for the afternoon sale (more details here), which will focus on eco-friendly and locally-sourced merchandise. While the shelves are stocked with NPR-branded products created around popular public radio programs and personalities (they have public radio temporary tats!), there are plenty of other items that even non-listeners can get into- check out this Indie Rock Coloring Book! The Commons will be running extended evening hours through the month, see the full schedule below.
