Craft enthusiasts, here's a Columbus event you won't want to miss, and it's a good excuse to get some holiday shopping done early! It's called Craftin' Outlaws, and it's an annual craft fair featuring jewelry, clothing, artwork, home décor and more from local and Midwest vendors.

The 2012 date for Craftin' Outlaws is Saturday, Nov. 17 at the Gateway Film Center. If you're eager to get shopping, there's early admission for $5 beginning at 10 a.m., but all others can get in free from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Learn more at craftinoutlaws.com.
