If you attended The Art Star Craft Bazaar two weeks ago, then most likely you walked away with something awesome. Perhaps it was a humorous onesie for your niece, a beautiful handmade beaded necklace or a really cool art print.
Whatever it was, the Art Star gals wanna see it.
At some point over the next week, snap a photo on your phone of your favorite item purchased at the bazaar in use and/or displayed inside your home, then upload it to Instagram using the hash tag: #ascbSCORE. Oh, and make sure you’re actually following Art Star on Instagram first.
Next Friday, June 7, they’ll be selecting one lucky winner to receive an Art Star Craft Bazaar tote bag with a special gift inside. Meanwhile, several of the best shots will also get a shout out in an upcoming blog post.
For those who already use Instagram religiously, this should be a pretty simple assignment. So far, the one to beat is @catiethekittycat, who posted the above photo of her dog rocking a Cutesy but not Cutesy hoodie.
Now, whip out your phone and see if you can top it!

While 25 of the finest restaurants along East Passyunk Ave. are serving up samples of their signature dishes and drinks as part of the Flavors of the Avenue event, over at the Singing Fountain (Tasker & Passyunk), you’ll find an array of handmade goods from more than 45 local artisans. A few of my own personal faves: MadeByLiddy (handmade gifts and repurposed paper art), Rogue Theory (functional tech sleeves and cases), Pupcakes, Bits & Pieces (super adorable dog clothes and treats), Masters of None (laser cut housewares and accessories), Joey Five Cents (reclaimed vintage jewelry), Phea Jean (accessories and clothing) and many, many more. (Saturday, 11am-5pm.)
Nine of some of the finest indie shops and boutiques in town—Arcadia Boutique, Art Star, Bloom, Casa Papel, Concrete Polish, Duke & Winston, Framing Philadelphia, Once Worn Consignment and SWAG Boutique—will be offering two straight days of sidewalk savings. Ranging anywhere from up to 75 percent off and varying from store to store, the best markdowns are likely to be found outside somewhere in the sea of racks and tables lining N. Second St. Meanwhile, inside each of the participating stores, you’ll find even more specials, as well as refreshments. (Sat., 11am-7pm. Sun., 12-5pm.)
That’s right–there’s great gifts out there for the ladies that don’t cost an arm and a leg. If you haven’t already, check out PW’s 2012 Giving Guide and return to this here blog next week as I shall be unleashing plenty more gift ideas.

For the first installment of PW Style’s 2012 Gift Guide, I figured I’d start with the fellas for a change. Most of the featured items are local with a few non-local items thrown into the mix for the sake of convenience (you know you’re going to probably wait till the last minute anyway).
I tried to take dudes of all types and ages into consideration, so whether you’re shopping for sports-loving father, your rocker boyfriend or you nerdy brother, here’s a few affordable gifts to consider.
