Where can you find music, complimentary cocktails and handmade gifts this time of year? Try the spectacular "Holiday Craftacular" held in Williamsburg on Saturday, Dec. 9.

For the admission price of $1, you can combine a shopping marathon with that ever-elusive concept: fun. Crafters are flying in from all over the country for this event, bringing their handmade handbags, knitwear, ornaments, jewelry and cards.

Unique, DIY-style items are in this season. So, if you are looking to please that certain someone who seems to have everything and need nothing, check out Tiny Rat’s Michael Jackson needlepoint (pictured), tattooed towels by Jenny Hart of Sublime Stitching, or a funky blouse by Fort Greene’s own Yana Gorbulsky of Supayana, who was featured in "BUST" magazine earlier this year.

To help ease the pain of parting with your hard-earned dollars, there is the free cocktail hour from 6 pm to 7 pm as well as an array of DJs keeping up the energy. And if your feet are not too tired after you’ve crossed everyone off your list, you can even shake it on the dance floor.

Has anyone else come up with a better alternative to shopping at the mall?

"BUST Magazine’s 2006 Holiday Craftacular" is Dec. 9, from 11 am to 9 pm, at Warsaw, 261 Driggs Ave. at Eckford Street in Williamsburg. Tickets are $1. For more information, call (718) 387-0505 or visit the Web site
