The seventh annual Valentine’s Craftacular is next Sunday!
Sunday, Feb 9th from 10am to 4p at the Madison Masonic Center!
I posed the question
What are your favorite things to do in downtown Madison?
to our vendors because when you come down to the shop at the sale…it’s a great opportunity to explore the downtown area.
I love visiting the Farmer’s Market, Children’s Museum and Downtown Library, checking out the shows at the Chazen andMMoCA, people watching at Colectivo Coffee on the square, and getting a bite to eat at Himul Chuli or The Old Fashioned. I wish I did all of these things more. – Patchwork Printshop
- I am the mother of 3 girls (ages 4,6,and 8) The Children’s Museum is a must-see (and play!) After a morning of play, we head to State Street for a slice of Mac ‘n Cheese pizza at Ian’s Pizza, and some of their yummy salads! The next stop is a trip to Capitol Kids, one of our favorite locally owned toy stores! We never leave empty handed! - Crafty Night Owl Designs
I love shopping on State Street, there are so many cute little shops with awesome finds. - Poplin
When we’re downtown we love to grab a bit to eat at Ian’s Pizza. We’re not very daring – no Mac ‘n Cheese pizza for us! You can find Matthew enjoying a simple pepperoni slice and Amanda will wait 20 minutes for a slice of Kalamata Mozzarella if they don’t have one made already! It’s amazing. -Alluring Blooms
Walk. I love looking at the architecture of the older buildings. I really love walking through the Capitol! I enjoy window shopping, maybe stepping in to look closer at something special. Meeting friends for coffee or dinner on State Street is a pleasure. – Wayward Wind Crafts
I have mentioned it before, but I love going for a burger at Dottie Dumpling’s Dowry!! Really, dining and partaking in the consumption of adult beverages is what I usually do in Madison. – Shop Gracie Designs
Cocktails with friends is a downtown Madison must! Danielle often takes her son Mason to the Capitol to do the fossil hunt and explore all the nooks and crannies. - Finding Felicity
In the winter I like to get cozy in a coffee shop or the library or I can spend hours in the craft supply stores getting inspired. - fifty acorns
My favorite place in Madison is Chazen Museum of Art downtown. A friend took me there about a year ago, and it is not only inspirational, but is loaded with all sorts of different types of art. It is truly an amazing space, and best of all it is FREE. -orange pops
