If you happen to find yourself in the city of Milwaukee, or thereabouts this Saturday, you should join in the the craft fair fun at Art vs. Craft this Saturday. The event will take place at the Humphrey Masonic Center, which is located at 790 N. Van Buren St. in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Here's a map to guide you there. Oh, and they will have the finest beer on tap, just in case you get a hankering to have one while you are in the Beer Capital of the World.
I'll be there selling tons of Giant Dwarf eco-friendly goods such as Cloche Hats, Glovettes, and Rosette Fascinator Headbands. I'll be sharing a table with my pal Jami from Built In Pittsburgh. She'll have lots cycling accessories, such as caps + winter hats. We will have lots of mirrors, so we'd love it if you stopped by to try on our stuff that we flew so far to show you!
A few weeks ago Erin + Megan, the lovely ladies of Art Star, and I decided to throw together a little trunk show featuring my work. The event will take place today and I couldn't be more excited! I will have materials on hand, like recycled sweaters, wool felt, and vintage buttons, to custom make cloche hats to your heart's content. I will also have other goods from my Autumn 2008 collection for sale as well. Here's a little more info:
