Planning ahead for the holiday shopping season? Brooklyn is known for original, artisanal items and foods. Sooooo....Don't miss the 5th Annual Holiday Handmade Cavalcade, a 2 day show of items crafted by the "Etsy NY Team", who describe themselves as an "eclectic group of independent artists, artisans, designers and crafters from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut," who sell their creations online through the popular Etsy website. Free admission. Plus, if you get there early, you might be one of the lucky 100 to win a gift bag. Held on December 1 and 2nd, 11-6, at The Space at 50 North Third Street, Williamsburg.
