Handmade Goodies

Ok so, whether it was lack of preparedness or interest, I did not participate in Cyber Monday. I have little desire to step foot inside a mall to complete holiday shopping. Last year, I had more luck at boutiques and stores on Walnut Street, South Side Works (Sur la Table, to be specific-- the best for stocking stuffers, too)  and the Handmade Arcade, which unfortunately, has been postponed until April '11.

Fortunately for those looking for unique handmade crafts, there are 3 viable options on the horizon.

Sweetwater Holiday mART
now through Sunday, December 5
Sweetwater Center for the Arts, Sewickley

I Made it! Market
Friday, December 3 - Saturday, December 4
South Side Works next to REI

Space Collective Holiday Show
Friday, December 3 and Saturday, December 18
4823 Penn Avenue

And this Thursday begins the Joy of Cookies tour in Lawrenceville. Marked with a gingerbread man at participating retailers, enter the boutique to sample a tasty cookie, get the recipe, and shop.
