DEPART-ment, the quarterly store of independent designer
goods is here again to provide an alternative to mass-produced
consumer goods this holiday season!
. The event is unique because unlike ordinary craft fairs where
vendors sell their wares at separate tables, DEPART-ment organizes all
goods according to sections. There is a clothing department, jewelry
section, home goods area, etc; all run in a collaborative
effort by the crafters and artists. You can find anything from
mustache pillows to knitted ipod cozies, clothing by independent
designers, and of course handcrafted jewelry.
All goods are handmade. There are no
brand-names. No foreign-assembly. No questionable-ethics.
Dates: Fri 12.1 (7-11pm)
Sat 12.2 (11am – 5pm)
Sun 12.3 (11am – 5pm)
