At the holiday gift exchange, you always get stuck with a Starbucks gift card the giver bought on the way to the party. And you don’t even drink coffee.
Stock up on well-priced items that will get snatched over too much syrah at this weekend’s Winter Holiday Arts Market benefiting Spacetaker. Selected young local artists congregate for a two-day event to showcase items you’ll want to give and receive – soaps shaped like cupcakes, belts and jewelry from Hello Lucky, hip silk scarves, whimsical prints, artisan jewelry from Petals & Metals, and modern stationery from A Punkin Card Company. You won’t be able to stop at just one present.
And then you can send Miss Unoriginal home with a bottle of wine. You know, since she’s pregnant.
Spacetaker’s Winter Holiday Arts Market
Friday, November 20th (5 – 10 p.m.)
Saturday, November 21st (11 a.m. – 8 p.m.)
FREE at Winter Street Studios
Featuring a DJ, performances, complimentary cocktails, and kid-friendly art activities

Hey there, Sampler fans! The week is almost over, and, here in Sampler Town, we’re getting ready to begin assembly for the September Sampler. Hooray! But first, I want to take a last look at summer, and at the August Sampler! I’m generally pretty picky about scents, which makes it pretty easy to shop for everything from perfume to laundry detergent. The solid lotion bars at feto soap, however, come in such an array of delicious smells that picking a favorite – or even which one to try next – a real challenge. If you happened to receive one in your August Sampler, perhaps you will be good enough to to pass along your recommendations?
It did cross my mind to try out all the different scents while the lotion bars were in the office, but, alas, we do have a policy about not including used skin care products in The Sampler. Go figure! If you visit fetosoap.com, you’ll find lotion bars available in: Cake, Lavender Vanilla, Sparkling Citrus, Plumeria, White Tea and Ginger, Yuzu, Ginger Lime, China Rain, and Chocolate. There’s even an “Unscented” option, which, though not as exciting to discuss, is a genius idea for moisture-loving males and anybody sensitive to scents. Today at The Sampler site, Alison is asking “If you won $100 this afternoon, what would you do with it?” My answer? I’d buy a rainbow of lotion bars from feto soap! So if you should win $100 today, or just have a little extra change in your pocket, and you want to go shopping, be sure to check out our wonderful Contributors and their creations! GO SAMPLER! xoxo, Jennicakes
feto soap will be on the PBS show In Context this fall.
In Context is about people who follow their dreams.
It is about process.
Going against convention.
Giving in to conviction.
In Context explores the creative people and unique things which make our lives more interesting.
From the biggest bands to the unsung heroes, from the celebrated auteur to the starving artist.
In Context seeks what drives those who can’t help themselves.
Sculptors, dancers, architects, jugglers, rappers, puppeteers, historians, painters, thinkers, writers, filmmakers, animators, photographers, musicians, explorers, designers…
The poets of form and function.
The obscure. The inspiring.
The strange and the beautiful.
