Bicycle Paintings by Talia Lempert will be at the Fall Craftstravanza in Chelsea on Saturday!

What a weekend! It’s definitely time to pull out your winter coat, that’s for sure! But don’t let that stop you from enjoying this beautiful season!

This weekend is the Fall Craftstravaganza, hosted by Fair Lady Markets! You’ll find beautiful jewelry, fashion design, home decor, tons of accessories, and generally extremely cool locally made artisan products for yourself and for everyone on you gift list! It’s right in the heart of Chelsea (see below), and it is a fundraiser for the NYC Museum School. There will be pie, and there will be puppies up for adoption!

Happy Halloween!
