Tonight is the eve of the DIY Trunk Show and I am surprised to find I have butterflies in my stomach!

And this show is different as I’m not just showing off my handmade goodies, I’m also leading DIY craft demos for participants.
What also sets the DIY Trunk Show apart from others is that Pierogi Picnic was a last-minute add-on. So between this show – and Renegade on December 4th & 5th – my brain is in fair preparation overload!
Here are some of the ideas I have up my sleeve and some things to inspire other vendors prepping for the madness of the season. If you’re anything like me you have butterflies too and could benefit from some advice! Read the rest of this entry »
Pierogi Picnic will be hawking our wares alongside 14 other incredible indie artists local to Chicago in the “50/50 The Blurring of Art & Craft” show. Come out on Friday for the neighborhood’s monthly First Fridays gallery walk and swing by our show to say ‘hi.’ David is running our nook solo that night so if you come out shower him with some extra love. The show takes place 6-10pm Friday, and 12-7pm Saturday and Sunday. Food, baked goods, music, and amazing handmade goodies and art will be there – and so should you!
