It was the good kind of hangover. 🙂 The kind of craft show delirium when an insane crowd just packed it in a fantastic setting and enjoyed all what the evening had to offer. There was no doubt in my mind the crowd was 3 times of what it was last year. 🙂
Craftoberfest is one of the few night-time handmade + vintage markets out there… perhaps the only one? Besides the various vendor offerings, there was the delicious beer from Urban Chestnut, yummy snacks from Strange Donuts and music from Beth Bombara, a group that definitely got the crowd dancing.
I may sound like a broken record, but I had an amazing time. I truly feel St. Louis has a special indie craft scene that can’t be beat.
If you want to view more pics of the event, just head over to my fan page on Facebook and take a sneak peek! Oh and one observation? There was a lot of guys there as well… I guess the temptation of beer brought them in. 🙂
What do you get when you mix craft + vintage + beer? Well, you get Craftoberfest, St. Louis’ first lantern-lit outdoor night market featuring local beer, live music, and some of the best handmade & vintage finds our fair city has to offer.
Held at Urban Chestnut Brewery, just a few blocks east of the Fox Theatre, it’ll be an amazing night to shop and hang out amongst the lantern lit beer garden. Here are some of the goodness that can be found…
