Wow. In the blink of an eye, October has arrived and almost exited in what feels like a week, not a month. We've got lots of events and happenings in November. To make things a bit easier, we've created a calendar for you. You can see our shop hours in aqua, as well as Maker Shows all in one place. You'll notice our Brick & Mortar will be adding more shopping hours starting after Thanksgiving. Starting November 30th, we'll be open Wednesdays 11am to 6pm and opening at 10 am on Saturdays, an hour earlier than usual.
Kicking off show season this year is a new to us event, Lycée French Market. This will be the 18th Market and we're honored to be part of it.
Next up is a show we LOVE participating in. Show of Hands is back! After a pandemic break of almost three years, they're back and we're thrilled. Take note, the show has a new location in River North. We've been secretly saving this weekend in hopes they would be back, our market wishes came true! If you haven't shopped SoH before, you really should. The vendors are an amazing community of makers. Most do their craft full-time, the quality of goods is apparent. Not only that, the new space is home to Architectural Artifacts, the most amazing collection of antiques around. Yup... you can shop handmade and vintage all under one roof.
Our last event for November is Small Business Saturday. You guys are the best and honestly, you show up for us every year on this day and we love it. We're still finalizing all the details but below is what we know for certain.
