On my way to Crafty Bastards

I’m heading over to the next neighborhood, Adams Morgan, to check out the cool stuff at Crafty Bastards. The last CB I went to was really fun and I saw a lot of cool trinkets and crafts. I bought some cool homemade plaques of Goofus and Gallant – remember them? from Highlights magazine? They taught you the difference between a nice boy and an ill-mannered jackass (click to enlarge):

I bet by the time Gallant was a senior in high school he got his ass kicked regularly. He was clearly gay.

I also bought a cool piece of art that had PBS painter Bob Ross‘s face on it.

The fair also features live music from local bands. Last time I caught a bit of The Cassettes steampunky set.

I hope I find some more hip, inexpensive stuff and hear new bands today!
