There were booths and booths of amazing handcrafted jewelry, leather goods, accessories, metal works, woodworks, embroidery, felting, clothing, paintings, and the like. Everything was affordable, original, and incredible.
Would I go next time?
The next time the JCCAC Handicraft Fair is projected to be held is on the weekend of June 21 & 22 (Same time, Same place). I will definitely be there. It's great to support to homemade/handicraft market. Plus, the some of the metal work jewelry was amazing and so unique! And, because the actual hand-crafters are the people behind the booths, you can meet a lot of great people who love the things they make. You can also get a lot more information on where their products can be found (Facebook links).

It gets rather crowded...like HK Crowded. I would suggest visiting the fair when it first opens (1 - 2pm) and around dinner time (5 - 7pm). This way, you can take your time to look at all the amazing things being sold.
