So, the holidays are coming up.
And while you’re shopping for gifts at Minnesota’s many local craft fairs, I’d like to make sure you know about one of the lesser-known but still lovely ones:
Sat Dec 13, 2014
1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
This is the one at which I’ll have a table, selling my handmade jewelry and other crafts.
My jewelry is crazy intricate Renaissance-fair-type stuff that you can see on my website.
There will be lots of other cool artists too! And the prices will probably be lower than other craft fairs, because artists don’t have to pay a huge fee just to get a table at this one.
Since it’s a bake sale, there will also be baked goods! Probably including some vegan and gluten-free options, because Minnehaha Free Space is into that.
The craft fair will be at:
Minnehaha Free Space
3747 Minnehaha Ave
Minneapolis, MN 55406
If you can get to downtown Minneapolis, it’s easy to get to Minnehaha Free Space from there by train. Here are directions from the downtown library. (I’ll give very detailed step-by-step directions, because there was a time when I was so scared of going new places that I would skip out on fun events just because I would have to get to them on my own… in those days, knowing the route in this much detail would have been a big help for me.)
Without further ado:
First, head from the library along Hennepin toward 5th Street:
At 5th Street, turn and wait at the Warehouse Station and Platform.
Get on a Blue Line train toward Mall of America:
Get off at the 38th Street Station:
Turn left and go down 38th Street:
Turn on Minnehaha and you’ll be there!
