You may have seen our little fliers around Cincinnati announcing the holiday show on Nov. 20. If you want to help spread the word, we’ve created PDF files of the fliers that you can print out and put wherever you want! (We especially appreciate our fans from further afield who want to spread the word to places we can’t get to.) Click the links below to download the files:
You know our awesome official show posters? The ones we silkscreen by hand before each show? Yeah, those are coming soon. :)
Great news: The Clifton Cultural Arts Center‘s elevator is nearly complete! The ribbon-cutting will be within the next week or two, and it will be fully operable in time for Crafty Supermarket! Accessible buildings = awesome for everybody.
The elevator is housed in that glass tower you see on the left, branded with CCAC. It’s just around the corner from the main entrance we used at the last show. (That’ll still be the main entrance with steps.)
THANK YOU for helping the second Crafty Supermarket be such a success! Over the course of the day we had more than 1,500 shoppers at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center.
We couldn’t have done it without all our volunteers, sponsors, Ruth and Erin of the CCAC, the shoppers and most of all the crafters. All 50 of you were amazing, and we’re so glad you were a part of Crafty Supermarket.
Phew! We’re still recovering from all the excitement. If you didn’t make it to the show, or just want to relive it, here’s some video Grace took of the show towards the end as things were winding down.
Announcements coming soon about our next show — stay tuned, and sign up for our newsletter in the upper right hand corner of the blog!
Alisha, Chris & Grace
The first shoppers of the day will get one of our 100 swag bags, which are just brimming with awesome stuff! The picture above is a random bag — contents will vary and might be even more awesome. Some of the things you might find in our swag bags are:
- a guest pass to the Taft Museum
- a beautiful screenprint from VisuaLingual
- a coupon for Taste of Belgium
- a coupon for MyCraftivityStore.com
- buttons, magnets, little crayons
- a ceramic brooch from Red Raven Studios
- samples of craft mesh
- craft scissors or a hole punch
- and more!
Get to the show early to make sure you get a swag bag! Last year, people started lining up at 10 freaking 30, which might be a little crazy, but that’s OK because we’re a little crazy too. :)
If you’ve never been to the Clifton Cultural Arts Center before, you’re in for a serious treat.
The CCAC occupies the old Clifton School, which was built in 1906 in the Beaux-Arts style. The center hosts art exhibits, cultural festivals and a plethora of regular classes ranging from tai chi to writing to felting.
Crafty Supermarket will be on the first floor of the CCAC, where our 50 craft vendors, DJ and food vendors will be rocking out all day on April 17. (That’s the main entrance to the right, which is on McAlpin Avenue, facing the Fairview German School.)
The CCAC is on the corner of Clifton and McAlpin avenues in the Gaslight District. Check out the CCAC site for detailed directions. There’s free parking directly behind the center, and plenty of street parking in the neighborhood.
The nearest bus stops are about a half-mile from the CCAC. Take the 17, 18, 19 or 39 bus to Ludlow Avenue at Telford, or take the 78 bus to Vine Street at Forest. Plan your trip at Go Metro.
