I know I know it isn't Thanksgiving yet but I'll be at a bunch of markets---every weekend at least one!--from now until Christmas. And this weekend has a special one so I wanted to get this out early. If you live in South Lousiana or if you are coming by in the next six weeks, come say hello! Click on links for more details!

Any outdoor market is subject to agreeable weather so check for updates on my fb page!

**also I will have new holiday cards this year but not until after Thanksgiving!  I will also continue making new books and journals throughout the season so stop by for something new***

Here we go:

Friday 11/17--MidCity Maker's Market Baton Rouge 6-10 pm

It's White Light night in Baton Rouge so Government Street will be buzzing with art openings, markets, drinks, food and seasonally chilly air. I'll be in the alley between Arlington and Eugene but take a walk through all the vendors! 

Saturday 11/18 & Sunday 11/19 NOCAZ New Orleans 

The New Orleans Comics and Zine Fest is back! Held in the downtown public library, with lots of family friendly fun--from 11-4 on Saturday and 12-4 on Sunday.  

Saturday 11/25 &11/26 Palmer Park Arts Market New Orleans 10 -4

Typothetae is back! Prints, cards, books and more from 7 local artists gather under one tent to share our letterpress love with you.  We will be at Palmer Park both days, 10 am till 4 pm, and many of us have new stuff!

Sunday 11/26 The Bazaar NOLA  11-5pm

  Two places at once! While members of Typothetae are in Palmer Park I will at Press and Dauphine sharing a spot with Lizxnn Disaster and her amazing collection of vintage clothes, flower essences and embroidered hankies.  

Saturday 12/2 Ogden Park Prowl Baton Rouge 1-6 pm

Rescheduled from October, this neighborhood arts party has live music, food and vendors hosted by the lovely people of Ogden Park. I will be on Beverly Street near Government so stroll by!

Sunday 12/3 Paper Machine grand opening party New Orleans 1-6 pm

The details of this are still being worked out but come to the lower 9th ward for a family friendly celebration to warm the new building--which is also the new home of gutwrench press! 6330 St. Claude

tuesday 12/5 Odgen Museum Shop 6-8 pm

Once a year, the Odgen Museum in New Orleans asks artists and crafts people to sell in the museum for a few hours. This is our first year trying it out but I have always loved the Ogden.

Thursday 12/7 Holiday Shop Hop Baton Rouge 4-8 pm

Sip champagne and shop local vendors at the Capitol Park Museum (aka the Louisiana State Museum).  The event starts at 11 am but we won't be there until the second shift at 4!  (if we are going to drive to Baton Rouge we are going to eat lunch at Bay Leaf)

Saturday 12/9 New Orleans Bookfair 11 am -5 pm

The original and my favorite. A sweet day in Clouet Garden with all the best of New Orleans's scrappier self-publishers and artists. 

(P.S. Typothetae will be holding down the tent at the MidCity Maker's Market that afternoon if you are in Baton Rouge!)

Saturday 12/16 Midcity Maker's Market Baton Rouge 4-8 pm

Back to Baton Rouge for another round on the corner of Eugene and Government.

Saturday 12/16 & Sunday 12/17 Palmer Park Arts Market  New Orleans 

We will be here with other members of Typothetae selling the last of our holiday gifts uptown from 10 am till 4 pm.

Saturday 12/23 pop up at  smallchalk  New Orleans

Now that you have your gifts come uptown and print some gift tags with me! I will have letterpress goods for sale too. Free! Ashlee of smallchalk is hosting a popup every Saturday between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Follow her for more details on the other unique offerings. 

Is that it? Not really. I'm also teaching a class or two, and giving a talk in Baton Rouge so follow me on facebook for more up to date information.  Or, stay home and shop at my new online store. But I'd rather see your face.
