Staff pick: Eco-Chic Craftacular

Jackie Mantey, Columbus Alive

What is in a name? In this shopping event's case, everything. What you read is what you get: opportunities to buy fabulous earth conscious crafts and to also play on the word spectacular.

This is the fourth edition of the annual two-day marketplace, hosted by Etsy Team Columbus, featuring more than 60 independent DIY artists selling their wares, from art to clothing, swanky toiletries to jewelry. There are also promises of local food carts, belly dancers, kids' activities and an Angry Birds slingshot game.

Shop early: The first 50 customers both days get a free bag of goodies. Swagtacular!
