"Oh, Crow?! I didn't even see you had Crow!" says an overjoyed man to Lindsay DiFabbio, whose table is set up on West 36th Street, in the heart of Hampdenfest.

"See? People get excited," says DiFabbio. "There's no Crow merchandise in the world."

Vestiges of Crow, Jurassic Park, Purple Rain, and countless other cult films can be found at DiFabbio's table, where she sells wallets and coasters made out of old VHS boxes.

DiFabbio started making them when she went searching for a pop-culture-related wallet.

"There were none to be found and I thought, Oh, I'll just make one," she says. Then, while running low on her hand-sewn handbags for a craft show, she brought the movie wallets as filler. "I sold more wallets than bags," she says.

Wallets are $10. The coasters-$6 each, or four for $20-feature an iconic part of the VHS box, facing up. Coated in acrylic polyurethane, they're sturdy enough for drinks.

"Even the smallest parts of whatever you furnish your house with can accurately represent your interests as a human," DiFabbio says. We'll drink to that.
