Holiday Heap

catch of the day fish (2)Oh, we so, so, so love the Charm City Craft Mafia’s annual Holiday Heap. We go every year, expecting to get a good portion of our gift shopping done, since there are treasures galore, and it’s all the super unique, handmade stuff that you won’t find anywhere else. But what we didn’t expect this year was that they would have read our minds. See, last year, we went to the Heap, because we always do. But honestly, it was so crowded with other handmade-gift-enthusiasts that it was kind of hard to shop. Plus, with handmade wares, it’s nice to actually be able to talk to the artisan, find out some of the background and be generally, you know, relaxed about things. Well, this year, for a mere $15, you can purchase a ticket to their Early Bird shopping Extravaganza! No crowds, more elbow room, more schmoozing. Yes.

Of course, the event is still free for non-early birds. You’ll just have to brave the thicker crowds. Which can still be fun, of course. But for those who come as Early Birds (and yes, it’s early—9am-10am), you’ll get complimentary munchies from Carma’s Cafe, coffee from Zeke’s, and even a swag bag loaded with coupons from local shops and craft vendors.  And of course you’ll get first dibs on all the one-of-a-kind items that the fabulous crafters have for sale. See you there!

The Holiday Heap takes place the Saturday, December 14th at St John’s Church, 2640 St. Paul Street in Baltimore. For more information, visit
