Go local and bolster your DIY cred at the same time at The Big Crafty. There, artists and makers of all kinds will convene in downtown Asheville and sell their one-of-a-kind, handmade wares. “Our guiding principle is that buying handmade is good for the community, and our aim is to make doing so fun,” say the Big Crafty organizers. “We extend a warm welcome to Asheville’s rich pageant of basement and backyard artists, its juried prize-winners and those who delight in them.” Local food, beer and music will also be on hand. The craft fair takes place on Sunday, July 13, from 1-6 p.m at the Asheville Art Museum and Pack Place. Free. thebigcrafty.com. Photo by Brandy Bourne
