readySET @ the Bridge, modeled by Sonia

Took a little field trip to the Bridge this afternoon with the lovely Sonia B, on a mission to document… Behold the fruits of our labor!

Oh, and Sonia wants everyone to know that wearing a cashmere cowl is an incredibly soft and cozy experience…”like being enveloped in BUTTER.”

The Bridge Great Gifts Holiday Shop is open M-F 12-8pm, Sa-Sun 12-6pm and is located at 209 Monticello Road, Charlottesville, VA, 22902.

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
