Spring Crafts Show on Columbus

Lots of street fairs and craft shows are starting up soon – always a good sign that warmer weather is around the corner. 
The Spring Craft on Columbus is one of my favorites. It takes place on the sidewalk next to the American Museum of Natural History on Columbus Avenue from 77th to 81st Street. Rows and rows of tents with great crafts, from ceramics to jewelry. Each weekend about 100 artisans exhibit and sell their own work.

Favorite City Holiday Markets

As always, my time is tight so I can’t afford to wander the city visiting the multitude of holiday markets that pop up at this time of year.
