Get away for the weekend and check out the adorable little town of Northampton, MA. Home to thousands of students, artists and musicians, the town is filled with great shops, restaurants, bars and coffee houses as well as several performance venues.
This weekend the Twist Fair will be showcasing original handmade goods and art from over 50 of the region's most talented crafters and artists. Two days of shopping start Friday evening on September 5 with DJ beats and adult beverages. It's less than two hours from Boston and only three hours from NYC, so it's a great excuse to escape the city and plan a weekend getaway. Check out the related items below for a sneak peek of the fabulous crafters and artists who will be there representing their work.
