Crafty Minions: The Handmade and Vintage Sale Returns

I am taking the easy way out and cutting and pasting from their Facebook page.  Just go and you will have lots of fun and see lots of great stuff.  :)

"Crafty Minions: The Handmade and Vintage sale will run at Aqua Books on Saturday, March 12, from 11:00am – 5:00pm. Admission is free.

Featuring Winnipeg's hottest established and emerging crafty superstars such as Sew Dandee, Papertrail Craft Co., Of Course You Can, Whipped Cosmetics, Mrs. Glockenheimen, and more, all peddling their wares, this is a sale not to be missed. Banish all thoughts of rows and rows of crocheted slippers or washcloths or ponybead keychains...think, instead, vintage-inspired handmade dresses, leather and ribbon wrist corsets, funky jewelery made of vintage silverware, tiny ceramic apartment buildings and octopus tentacles, retro aprons hand-embroidered with sassy 80s pop lyrics, handmade natural skincare luxuries, wall-art created from bass strings and recycled children's books, silk-screened courier bags and babywear, weird and wonderful stuffed animal-ish creations of all sorts, and much more. This is the new world of gorgeous guerilla DIY craft, right here at Aqua Books.
