Check List for Go West! on Sunday

Sunday is almost here and we cannot wait!  We're so excited to be using the amazing sanctuary space at The Rotunda as well and the back space that we know and love and  outside. There will be 100+ vendors selling a huge variety of handmade goods, really something for everyone!
Some helpful hints:

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!

Coming In - There are two entrances this year. In the front on Walnut St the doors will be wide open (with beautiful wreaths designed by Snapdragon Flowers) to the beautiful and not much seen historic Sanctuary filled with vendors. The side door (that's normally used) along the pathway to Locust will also be open and the original space will be filled with vendors as well. There is a fun loop to make to check out everyone.  

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 - While there's considerably more room than in years past,  it'll still make your life easier with the littles and shopping if you wear them. There's plenty of stroller parking outside.

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 sweets and gift items from Weckerly's Ice Cream and The Lil Pop Shop  you won't go away hungry. 

Your Camera - The Sanctuary space is really breathtaking and you might just want to snap some pics or a selfie or two with your purchases. Don't forget to tag #gowestcraftfest over on Instagram; we love to repost our favorites! 

We can't wait to see you all there! Stop by Emily from VIX Emporium and Wilder from As the Crow Flies & Co's tables, both in the Sanctuary to say Hi. 


  1. Since office parties are few and far between, it would be among good company party ideas to get out of the office. This may not always be an option, but if it is - you should definitely exercise it as people associates the boring walls of the office with the monotonous daily grind.
