A Guide for the Love-Struck Shopper
Valentine’s Day often sneaks up on people and delivers an arrow of panic — not affection — when a paramour is pressed at the last minute to find that perfect token of love. Lucky you: This year, there are a handful of vendors with one-of-a-kind to help your search start and end early and successfully. Check out A Valentine Craft Affair this Saturday from 12 to 5p.m. at Art 6 Gallery (6 E. Broad St.). The Richmond Craft Mafia is sponsoring the event with their Raleigh, N.C.-based sister group, Raleigh’s Handmaidens.
Some of the fun things you’ll find will include necklaces made from painted flower charms and antique keys by Twist Style. You’ll also see delicate chain and bead necklaces by Keen Designs. If your sweetheart has more exotic tastes, there’ll be handmade sushi sets from Pottery By Tasha McKelvey.
The same vendors will be in Raleigh next weekend for “Raleigh Loves Richmond: A Valentine Craft Affair” on Feb. 10 from 1 to 5 p.m. at Vintage 21 (209 Oberlin Road).
