Holiday Thanks!

dec gowest12Thank you everyone for a busy and wonderful holiday vending season. We have one more (small) fair today in our neighborhood then we’re taking a well deserved break for Christmas and New Years. I meant to post this thank you from GO WEST! last week. Well, here it is now!GO WEST! Dec12 I still have Christmas sewing to do for L and our niece (I know cutting it close), and will be happy to sit and relax on Christmas Eve with our family and my new favorite winter cocktail, eggnog & Snap.

Wishing you much laughter and light for the rest of this year and into the next. Remember…221028294181646464_rqhxwTBZ_c

GO WEST! *holiday* Craft Fest this weekend!

We’re getting so excited for this weekend. Our holiday Fest is almost here and we’ve been so busy making and promoting, not to mention doing that for all the other fairs this season! This one is our baby though, and feels really special. It’s our 3rd year of having a holiday fair at The Rotunda. The first was Second Saturdays (anyone remember that?) then we transformed into GO WEST! They’ve all been really fun and busy, with great local vendors and a terrific crowd. I hope for nothing less this year, once again we have an awesome line up of vendors, many who have been there from the start, and some very first timers too. We also have food (and coffee) from Black Orchid, treats & pops from the Lil Pop Shop and ice cream from the debuting West Philly company Weckerleys!

Check out our pintrest page for a sneak peek at some of the wares that will be there. Also the complete listing of the vendors is here on our blog. I can’t wait to see everyone there and am anticipating a busy and fun filled day! There will be handmade holiday gifts for pretty much everyone.
