valentine-banner-2014-updat The seventh annual Valentine’s Craftacular is just over 2 weeks away!

Sunday, Feb 9th from 10am to 4p at the Madison Masonic Center!

Are you all as excited as I am?  I hope so!

This is Kim of Persimon Dreams doing the pre-show blogging previews!  In the past I’ve done individual interviews with the artist.  This year I’m going to mix it up a bit.  I asked all the artist five questions and I requested pictures.  I’ll be sharing their answers and some fun photo collages to get you all super excited for the show over the next few weeks!

BW090001aWhat items will you have at this years show?

We pride ourselves in finding great, high-quality vintage pieces from the 1920’s through the 1980’s.  Some pieces that we are especially excited about are a Member’s Only jacket with tags still attached, a pair of leather Keds, and our wonderful tie selection. Many one-of-a-kind gifts available!

Anytime someone takes the time to make a gift, or seeks something out to perfectly match the person is always a memorable gift.

Where is your favorite place to eat in Downtown Madison? If you can catch it during the day, downtown Madison has an amazing food cart community, offering such an amazing variety of food. And then you have the standard in all things beer, cheese and Wisconsin at The Old Fashioned.

Which other booths at the Craftacular are you excited to visit to do some special holiday shopping?

While we are excited to see all of the other vendors, we are particularly looking forward to seeing what Big River Woodworks, Twinkle Toes, Bare Tree, and of course Glitter Workshop have to offer.
