Introducing the Degenerate Craft Fair

Responding to the miserable economy, a group of artists are taking things into their own hands and selling their work for less than $50.
Nov. 18, 2011 - PRLog -- The Degenerate Craft Fair is different from your traditional holiday craft fair. Featuring over 75 artists and designers selling their work for generally under $50, some offerings include traditional craft items such as handmade jewelry, ornaments, and knitwear but also include original paintings, artist books, teeth sculptures, curious creatures and more!

Organized by artists Amy Wilson and Shannon Broder, this event was originally designed to help a group of friends weather the recession together. “Artists have been really devastated by the terrible economy. So we wanted to come up with a way to help ourselves to make a little extra money by selling inexpensive versions of our work – books, prints, multiples, whatever we can come up with,” states Wilson.
