    The Beautiful Things Craft Market was free to attend and open to the public, but it wasn’t like your ordinary arts and crafts flea market…Rooms 5 and 6 had a disclaimer warning attendees that some of the arts and crafts items contained “strong language and nudity.”

    The space offered curated selection of ceramics, fibre and textile crafts, handmade jewelry, art pieces and clothing. There was also a live DJ on hand at the event spinning actual vinyl records.

The event was a fun and inclusive space for queer families with children and chosen families with pets, so dogs were welcome.
