OK, it seems as if I might be on an endorsements roll, here, but the truth is, it’s the holidays, and that means there exists an embarrassment of riches in the handmade department, for giving and for getting! Yesterday I mentioned the Holiday Happening — workshops. a market, food and other holiday frolic to be had Dec. 7-9 in St. Paul, courtesy of Pies and Aprons!
Today, I want to share an event closer to home, in the former Bayer’s Hardware!
Venerable craft show Snap! Crafted! Pop! has moved to Linden Hills, where it will offer great goods from a variety of vendors (including Nancy Polacek Design, our favorite neighborhood vintage seamstress, candle maven Kathy Kuhl of Nelli Designs and StormSister Spatique, the place to go for rockin’ soaps, elixers and all things pampering.
Pictured above: Nancy P’s fab dopp kits sewn from vintage Pendelton and Faribo blankets, lined with moisture-resistant fabric. She’s working on girlier versions, too. Below: Some of her pillows, purses and zippered bags from last year’s show!
So, I look forward to seeing you at Snap! Crafted!, where you can shop small and local in a very big way!
Hours are Saturday, Dec. 1, 10 a.m.-8 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 2, noon to 4 p.m.! The link at the top of the post has details!
