You can be an Ethical Shopper too!

The 2nd Annual DIY Factory will take place on November 15, 2008 from 3:00pm to 1:00am at La Plaza del Rey Ballroom, centrally located just North of Hildebrandt on Fredericksburg.

This holiday season, give yourself the gift of ethical shopping!

At the 2nd Annual D.I.Y. Factory, you can buy handmade, unique gifts in every price range made by local artists, crafters, and designers.

On November 15th, come shopping at our showcase of 50 alternative arts and crafts vendors epitomizing the Do-It-Yourself ethic. You won't see your grandma's country crafts, painted bluebonnets or jams and jellies at our fair. You will, however, see unique fashions and accessories, art dolls, handmade house wares, jewelry, found object art, paintings, silk screened tees and totes, knitted goods, and many other one-of-a-kind hand crafted oddities.

In addition to shopping, enjoy four local bands and a dance troupe performance, and stop by the community action area to learn more about how you can participate in activism beyond the D.I.Y. scene.

Only $5 (or $4 with a flier) gets you in the door, so come support the Battered Women and Children's Shelter of Bexar County, local artists, designers, and musicians while having a blast!
