Thank You!

Wow, what a fantastic day we all had on Saturday! The vendors made the space look amazing, so cheery and festive. We had a terrific turnout all day long and some record breaking sales for vendors.
A huge thank you to Gina from the Rotunda for helping with all the moving and and rearranging before hand. If you ever need a space for performances, lectures, you name it,  the Rotunda is the place!
If you missed any of the vendors or regret not purchasing an item, their contact is all on on our vendor list. Also many of the vendors have their work at VIX Emporium which will be open every day till Christmas for all you last minute shopping needs! If you are still hankering for the Craft Fair Scene the Independent Craft Market is next weekend in Fishtown for a little more local love The Procrastinator's Last Chance Craft Fair is on Sunday at the A-Space in West Philly.

We hope you have a wonderful holiday and we'll see you in the Spring at the Woodlands! More info on that TBA soon...  

Thanks and Thanks!
Wilder & Emily
Also, if you have pictures of the Fest, tag us on Facebook for all to see!

Checklist for Saturday

Saturday is almost here and we can't wait! Everyone is so excited for what will be an excellent day of local, handmade shopping. For this holiday event we tried to keep it really local, over half of the fifty talented vendors live in West Philly, and the rest in the Philly area. We really do have something handmade for everyone on your list.

Don't forget to bring your:

Tokens - The Rotunda is a short walk from the L, the 40th St trolley hub and on the 21 and 42 bus line. If you are going by car there's metered parking on Walnut St, and a pay Parking Garage across. Free parking can be a little tricky in that neighborhood, but not impossible!

Cash - While many of our vendors accept credit cards, not all do. Did you know when you pay by credit card to a small business they're losing valuable dollars per transaction to a huge credit card company...? We're happy to take your cards, but we like cash much, much better!

Your Holiday Shopping List - We bet you won't go away empty handed!

A Babywearing Device - Last year people were glad they did!

Friends -  chances are you'll run into someone you know, but it's nice to bring some friends along and make a day of it!

Your Sweet Tooth - With gift items and gourmet pops from The Lil Pop Shop and Weckerleys Ice Cream it'll be hard to resist something. Black Orchid Foods will also be there with veggie snacks, lunch and handmade organic extracts.

Unlike last year we'll have select vendors outside and upstairs in the balcony. More shopping for you and the chance to see the space in a different light.

Can't wait to see you all there! Stop by VIX Emporium and As the Crow Flies & Co's tables, right as you walk in to say Hi.
