this post is mostly for my local readers...or anyone else who might be planning a little trip to utah in the near future! my dear friend nichole is opening a brand new craft market & community art center in pleasant grove called patina.
patina is awesome because it will feature ten different artists/vendors each week in the same shop. [you can read about the first week's crop of vendors here.] starting in january patina will also offer community art classes so you can learn more about how to make the awesome products available...or if you just want to become a little more crafty with like-minded friends.
the GRAND opening of patina is tomorrow, november 18 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. a little birdy told me there will be free cupcakes AND free handmade gifts for the first customers, so stop by early and let me know what you think!
[and yes, there will be plenty of beautiful paper for purchasing...such as stationery from nifty swank and handbound books from mufn inc. i can't wait to check this place out!]
