Top 5 Craftin’ Outlaws with Wholly Craft – sponsored post

The longest running alternative craft show in town, Craftin’ Outlaws, is often confused with the longest running handmade store in town, Wholly Craft. Perhaps it’s because we both turned 12 this year. Perhaps it’s because we have a similar aesthetic and represent the same makers but make no mistake about it there is only one Wholly Craft in town and they hustle creative game 365 days a year. This beloved handmade shop in Clintonville has been defining and creating the craft landscape in Columbus with feminist attitude and craft treasures since they first opened their doors. Owner Olivera Bratich has also spread her cheer of handmade into a sister store in the Short North, Surprise Modern Party. This multi-tasker and craft queen shares her Top 5 Craftin’ Outlaws. Find yours this weekend as we return for 2 days at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

“I can’t get enough of this Ohio illustrator. I follow everything she does! Her birds are pretty much the best.”

“Smart and quirky illustrations and pins designed by the nicest person ever. I’m always excited to see what’s new from Mute and Gold!”

“Not only a talented artist but a wonderful instructor as well! I’m secretly a terrible crafter and she successfully taught me to weave!”
Under Aurora
“These are the products that made me actually adult-up and start washing my face every day. This line also has me finally wearing good smelling spritzes – if I smell good, it’s because of an under aurora product.”
