Art event preview: Craftin’ Outlaws Spring Fling returns for its ninth year

From the April 17, 2014 edition

Supporting local indie artists, crafters, and designers is always great, but the Spring Fling is also a chance to get some really cool stuff — everything from artwork, jewelry, clothing, housewares, knitted goods, accessories and even toys. Trinkets, and tchotchkes, and knickknacks oh my!

Now in its ninth year, Craftin’ Outlaws has become one of Columbus’ most treasured events for both DIY-Etsy folks, but also those who just want an entertaining afternoon of shopping and socializing.

Attendees also get the opportunity to make their own wares at a handful of make-and-take stations concentrating on art and jewelry making and photography.

And to get those creative (or impulse buying) juices flowing, there’s a cash bar on hand.
