It's here! It's here! This weekend! This weekend!
Get ready to shop your handmade heart out among over 250 crazy talented vendors. Plus DIYs. Plus book signings. Plus a Friday evening First Pick Pre-Show Party, where tickets may already be sold out. (But you should still check the link to see if there are tickets if you wanna go Friday night).
This is one of my absolute favorite events of the year, and the women who have created and still run the show are so flipping organized and talented it makes my to-do list go run and hide from intimidation (they run this show twice a year, plus a retail brick + mortar, plus they're makers, and mothers, and more, and are just fantastic people overall).
It's free to get in, and if you take the MAX it'll save you from having to park at the Convention Center.
MarshMueller will be near the entrance, right by Magpie Ethel, who specializes in vintage-inspired decor (for real. Her stuff is amazing and I have to set a mental budget every time I look at her stuff).
I'll have super brand spankin' new items that I haven't had time to edit and post online, so you'll be getting first dibs on it.
So, go! Shop local! Shop handmande! At least you'll know who made it and where it was made, amirite? ;)
INTROVERT TIP :: If you don't dig crowds, I highly suggest getting tickets for the Friday night Pre-Show (link in copy above), or go toward the end of the day on Saturday or Sunday. The busiest times are about 12-2.
