Yesterday I went to visit Spacecraft in Brooklyn, NY. Spacecraft is a unique craft-making and supply store located on the South Side of Williamsburg. I would call this store “Retrocraft.” It is a really great out-of-the-box type store.
I knew something was different when I first drove by and saw their window display. “Poo Poo — Make It Yourself! Freak Out Your Friends! April Fools!” There was other signage through the store that was unique. One sign said “Craft is political, Craft is powerful, Craft is possible!” This store is about become a community. They have a big table in the middle of the store and it revolves around community, sharing, and experiencing together. In this case it’s about CRAFTS!
