Holiday Haul December 1, 2009

Posted by cbuchanan in Uncategorized.

In the next few days, you’ve got a ton of opportunities to get unique gifts for everyone on your list–goodies created by local artists and crafters:

–Jill Marlar is showing her intricate, elegant, timeless intaglio prints at What’s on Second beginning this Friday evening at 5:00 p.m. You don’t see very many intaglio printmakers selling their work around here, so you should definitely check out her work.

–That same evening, from 6:00 to 10:00, Bare Hands Gallery is opening its “Shine” holiday show, but with a twist. In addition to ornaments and such, the art will include “sculptural trees and branches” to hang them on. That sounds intriguing!

–On Saturday and Sunday, Bottletree’s annual holiday craft bazaar will take over the cafe–and three other locations in Avondale. That’s likely the largest craft show the city has ever seen, so you’re sure to find some kind of fun or funky handmade treasure. Plus you’ll get to explore Bottletree’s cool neighborhood. Bottletree will be serving food and refreshments in multiple locations as well. The bazaar lasts from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.

–I’ve also learned that Pepper Place is hosting a special holiday market this Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. I haven’t seen much promotion for this, but it sounds like you’ll be able to buy fresh veggies, baked goods, and handmade gifts in the usual spot.
