At the last Rock-n-Roll Craft Show (www.rocknrollcraftshow.com), Ms. Day went on a major shopping spree she likes to call it Shopstravaganza 2006 and bought so many wonderful crafts, there's not enough space here to describe them all. But she's gonna try. First, there were the jewelry pieces, so unique yet totally versatile and affordable. Then, she snatched up some home-décor items: Meg's Magz (simple but profound magnets) and the intricate mosaics were especially nice. Of course, there were wearable (and carry-able) goods at the show as well, from cool kling duct-tape clutches and Super Cute baby clothes to T-shirts and skirts of all kinds. And she almost forgot to mention the paper goods: beautifully unusual handmade books and cards...and, come to think of it, Day needs to stock up on some of those cards. And she could use a new top or two, too. And perhaps a necklace, just to enhance her new clothes. Lucky for her, another Rock-n-Roll Craft Show is happening this weekend! To join Day in what is undoubtedly going to be Shopstravaganza II 2006 80 local artists are participating this time around! just head to the Mad Art Gallery (2727 South 12th Street) from noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday and from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday (November 25 and 26).
Oh, and it's not called the Rock-n-Roll Craft Show for nothing: Twelve bands play outside throughout both days! And you can learn to craft, too, during one of the seven demonstrations and workshops.
Sat., Nov. 25; Sun., Nov. 26
