Crafty Bastards

We spent part of the afternoon today at a crafts fair sponsored by the local City Paper and dubbed "Crafty Bastards." There were more than 100 booths packed into an area outside the Marie-Reed recreation center in Adams-Morgan and the place was jammed. Lots of handmade stuff--several different vendors of fancifull stuffed monsters made from cotton and/or recycled cloth. Near the Italian ice stand was this New Orleans jazz band playing up a storm.




Audience participation was encouraged. If you look closely, you can see a certain farmer guy in his straw hat and New Orleans Jazz Fest shirt workin' the washboard.


There was a beat you could dance to....


And the trombonist was some kind of cool.
