It’s been far too long since we’ve sent out a monthly update. Now that the craft show season has officially arrived, it’s high time we checked back in and let you in on all the new stuff.
First, the big news: we are the newest members of the Richmond Craft Mafia! We’ve jumped right in and are helping out with the prep for the upcoming Spring Bada Bing show (Sunday, Apr 18, Plant Zero, RVA). If anyone wants to volunteer to help out at the show, please let us know. We’re thrilled to have been “made” in the RCM, and can’t thank everyone enough for their warm welcome.
The almost-as-big second news: Meghan is now running her own monthly craft show, as part of the Saturday Stroll event. Saturday Stroll occurs on the 3rd Saturday of every month, and encourages Richmonders to come out and support their local retailers. The craft show happens in the parking lot next to Quirk Gallery, from 11 am-4pm. March 20th was the first show, and the next show is April 17th. The show is gently curated to highlight local and regional independent artists and crafters. So come out every third Saturday, and meet the awesome people making things in the area. If you’d like to participate as a vendor, please email Meghan at: saturdaystrollcrafts at gmail dot com.
There’s always lots more stuff at our booth than you can find on Etsy, so come out and see us. We’re applying to all kinds of art shows in the mid-Atlantic, and if you know of one, we’d love to hear about it.
Here’s where you can find us through April:
March 27 – Tooth and Nail show – 11 am to 7 pm – Velvet Lounge – Washington, DC
April 17 – Fool for Art – 10 am to 5 pm – John Tyler Community College, Midlothian campus – Midlothian, VA
(If you’re paying attention, this is the same day as the next Saturday Stroll. There will be artists at Quirk; however, this event was already on our calendar, so we’ll be at this instead. No reason why you can’t hit up two fabulous art shows in one day, even if we can’t!)
April 18 – Spring Bada Bing – 11 am to 4 pm – Plant Zero – Richmond, VA
If you’re not in and around Virginia, just wait until May! We’ll be doing lots of traveling up and down 95, so stay tuned for those shows.
Happy Spring y’all!
-Phil & Meghan
