readySET at the Bridge Great Gifts Holiday Shop

Long live the handmade! Don’t miss the opening reception for the Bridge‘s Great Gifts Holiday Shop, tonight: Friday, December 3rd, 5-9pm. Over 30 local artists/artisans/crafters will be offering their handmade and vintage wares through December 23rd. ¬†30% of the proceeds will contribute to the Bridge’s ongoing programming.

After tonight, the shop will be open weekdays noon-8pm and weekends noon-6pm. They’ll also be selling gift certificates and the shop will continue through the month of Janurary during normal gallery hours (Dec. 27-Jan 29, noon-3pm, Wed-Sat, or by appointment).

They’re still looking for volunteers to staff the shop…in exchange for your services you’ll receive a 30% discount on items in the shop. If you’re interested in lending some time, contact¬†charlottesville.all.stars@gmail.com.

I’ll be selling a wide selection of my hand-made wares:

+ woolen/cashmere cowls to envelope your neck

+ clutch purses fashioned from wool trousers and kimono silks

+ zoomorphic woolen/cashmere hats for your little ones

+ totes crafted from vintage bed linens

+ knitted and felted woolen helmets to warm your precious skull

+ wrist cuffs to add visual interest to that oft-overlooked aspect of your corpus
