From the Creators' Co-op website:
"A first of its kind in Astoria, Creators’ Co-Op is a store that sells hand-made unique items which include fashion, accessories, art, and home-goods.
For participating artists, it is a co-operative style venue where we introduce ourselves to the public and sell some of our creations.
We are trying to give the people in our own neighborhood a choice of not taking the subway into Manhattan or Brooklyn to shop for something cool."
Check out their web site and get on the Creators' Co-Op mailing list. You won't get spam, but you'll find out about all the events they have.
