Holiday shopping season may lurk around the corner like an aggrieved sweathouse elf, but the Current is feeling pretty psyched about the Second Annual DIY Factory happening this Saturday. What the Sam Hill is that, you ask? See here: 50-plus cutting-edge arts-and-crafts revolutionaries will hawk their handmade wares, while indie musicians rawk La Plaza del Rey Ballroom. In addition to the crafts market and music, there’ll be a fashion show from 10-11 p.m. featuring Thomas Jefferson Fashionistas, Agosto Cuellar, and Paris Ann. And for those of y’all who harbor a craftster itch, a Make-n-Take table will provide materials and tools to create your own “cigar-box shrine.” (The Current can’t wait to find out what the hell that is, exactly.)

… Did we mention the VaVaVoom Vaudeville Inspired Belly Dance Theatre? Or that the first 100 guests will nab a free hand-silkscreened goody bag? And how much will this all-day (3 p.m.-1 a.m.!) ticket to crafty paradise set you back? FIVE MEASLY DOLLARS. And if that weren’t enough, the event benefits the Battered Women & Children’s Shelter of Bexar County. If we don’t see y’all there, we won’t even be able to figure out why. More info at
