This Weekend Only!

Two local businesses are hosting events this weekend for your shopping pleasure, too.

Check out the third annual High Noon Craftacular on November 24–25. Twenty emerging and established artists on the “alternative” craft scene will have their crafts for sale. Items include crocheted hand towels, purses and rugs; baby items; fun kitschy stuff; and handbags, clothing and more. “Recycling artist” Emily Kircher, one of the Craftacular’s featured artists, wrote to me: “In light of recent recalls on imported and mass-produced goods, it makes more sense than ever to shop handmade and local!”
So stop by the sale and buy something unique for a loved one—something they surely won’t find anywhere else!
High Noon Craftacular, Nov. 24–25, 10a–4p, free. High Noon Saloon, 701 E. Washington Ave.

Dottie Rose will be hosting an OR’iEN trunk show. From what owner Melissa Ernst writes about the designer: “ORi’EN is designed by the fabulous Chicago designer Cyndi Chan. She uses classic silhouettes and shapes with modern details and construction!” From what I saw online, Chan’s items are beautiful (I saw a short and long satin trench coat and a pleated halter dress that were gorgeous) and Ernst writes that Chan’s clothing was recently featured on Oprah and in Lucky. Cool!
Dottie Rose ORi’EN trunk show, Nov. 24, 10a–5p. 1835 Parmenter St. 831-9099.
