PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) - If you're looking for a creative last minute Mother's Day gift, or just something fun to do with mom on Sunday, the Art Star Craft Bazaar meets both criteria.

The event is back this weekend for a 15th year.

Shoppers can get their hands on a wide variety of goods from over 100 vendors like pottery, jewelry or candles to name a few.

Clothing seemed to be a popular seller, like at Suzanne Schubert's Umsteigen tent.

"I do bamboo screen printed T-shirts," she said." Bright, colorful, busy patterns."

And a few tents over...

"We're selling hats and skirts and bags that we design and cut," said Phil Minor with Rocks and Salt. “A lot of the stuff we do is really earthy, natural vibe. At the same time we use a lot of color."

Unique is a major theme of this event. Look no further than Zack Bluett's AHHA Brands tent for an example.

"I have some very punny illustrations," he said. "I have two series, one is all the presidents as punny animals and the second is a series called 'Petflix' TV shows, also as punny animals."

Clair Cohen's Montclair Made tent is another example of some of the unusual products shoppers can purchase.

"Zipper patches that look like notebook paper fabric," she said, and I embroider cursive letter words on them, funny phrases and funny words."

There was even some do it yourself tents.

We are allowing people to make suncatchers," said JJL Studios owner Jessica London. "It looks like stained glass, but it isn't. This is the very first time I'm allowing other people to come and play with this material I invented."

Live music and food rounded out the Art Star Craft Bazaar.

You can check it out on Mother's Day as well until 6pm.
