holiday gift sales
oh yes, it's that time of year again! september through december are always the busiest months for me, because fall/holiday is the most intense sales season and it's when i make and sell so many crochet pieces, which are the most time-consuming items in my line. it all culminates in december when the big holiday gift sales come along... this year i am doing two: first is the BUST craftacular, this coming saturday, december 9 at the Warsaw in williamsburg. i did this one last year too and it's quite an extravaganza: dj's, prizes, free drinks (6-7pm) and over 60 vendors with all kinds of hand-crafted gift ideas, including many of my fellow SAPLINGs: treehouse (which also means sirius and becky lee), raeburn ink, mociun, 31 corn lane, a.s.i.s., as well as other friends like MAKE workshop, saltlick, and department of craft!
and if you can't make that one, or just prefer a quieter, more intimate shopping experience, the following saturday, december 16 i will be at sodafine's 'THE GIFT on grand' sale, held in a beautiful old bank building near the river. this one has over 20 designers, nearly all of whom will not be at the previous sale so you'll want to try to check out both! lena corwin is doing this one, and so are ann wood (can't wait to see her birds!), deadly squire and moonblood.
i promise to post some sneak peeks at what i'm making for these events this week...
