CRAFTERMATH presents an LES alternative to Cinco De Mayo mayhem in a hybrid boutique/bar!
From 7 til 9pm-ish:
The Dressing Room
75 A Orchard Street (btwn Broome & Grand)
Lower East Side, NYC
Wed., May 5th

The CRAFTERMATH Creatives sell punk crafts & unusual art at a neighborhood treat-to-behold: The Dressing Room. It features emerging designers & vintage goods, clothing exhange/charity donation. Our artwork is affordable, along w/the drinks. Happy Hour is a real deal plus they have a permanent $ 5 beer & whiskey combo. We’ll show a collage of films by a special guest filmmaker (TBA) on the gold-framed movie screen. JESSICA DELFINO will share a new song, perhaps on an uncommon instrument. This is a flower & fauna theme: we’ll have some new wearable flowers in unusual mediums, and some tattoo-butterfly themed art, in addition to our regular jewelry, paintings, comics, mini-shrines, etc.

Hoping you can join CRAFTERMATH for exciting & unusual fun times! Weird (but friendly) creative types who enjoy cheap craft-shopping, fashion, art, drinks, music & film – meet us here!
