Saturday, December 11
Stop by my winter shop at Winter Wonderlark this Saturday! We are bundling up and taking it to the streets for an outdoor holiday market. There will be hot drinks, fresh wreaths and garland, gifts and toys, roasted nuts and cozy winter accessories handmade by yours truly. My table will be piled high with brand-new neck cozies, knit and crocheted winter hats, and other seasonal goodies.
Make sure to be there to watch (or run) the 5th Annual Santa Speedo Sprint! You really don't want to miss this one... unless the sight of a tipsy crowd running towards you wearing only their underwear and Santa hats gives you heart palpitations. In that case, just donate a few bucks to the important cause and then stop by my booth and say hello. There will also be a Gingerbread Funshop, Ornament Making, a Winter Window Display Contest, a performance Ice Sculptor, Sinterklaas and a particularly rad-sounding traditional Mexican event wherein you drink hot chocolate and eat buñuelos (a fried dough type of dessert) and then smash the ceramic serving dish. Sounds fun. Click here for more info. Lark Street shops and vendors will have everything you need to finish up your local, thoughtful holiday shopping. Instead of sorting through angry crowds at the mall, you can make your way through a crowd of Speedo-clad merrymakers. What's not to love?
I'll be somewhere between Lancaster St & Hudson Ave, bundled up in a thousand layers and chugging hot cocoa. This is the last market update for the season and then I'm taking a time-out to listen to Christmas tunes until I get sick of them one hour later, trim our wee tree and finish up my gift making and shopping. Also, cookies. Lots of cookies.
