There are two fun, decor-related events going on in Cincinnati this weekend.
1.) Crafty Supermarket Holiday Show
I hear this will be the holy grail of Crafty Supermarkets with 90+ vendors packed into a gorgeous ballroom at Music Hall in Over the Rhine. This is the first time I’ve been to Crafty Supermarket but I’ve heard such good things, I figured their biggest show would be a great first time. Aaron’s work, Powerhouse Factories, will be there selling music posters (like the ones that adorn our office walls).
The details: Saturday, November 23, 11 am – 8 pm, Music Hall
Here’s the Facebook event for more information (vendor list, FAQ’s, etc.)
2.) Castner Picture Frame Company Warehouse Sale
This one has a great story. A guy bought this building in the hopes of turning it into an office space, but quickly discovered nearly 100,000 antique frames, most of which date back to the early 1900′s (!). He refuses to throw them away (good man!) so he, with the help of a few others, have been holding sales every Sunday for the past few months. I hear it is floor-to-ceiling packed with awesome frames.
This article describes the shopping process in an awesome way. You walk in and are handed gloves and masks. Wine and other light refreshments are also served. Then, with gloves on and wine in hand, you begin to inspect the piles of frames to find your favorites. You bring your dusty finds to check-out, where they dust them for you and wrap them up.
I’m so excited for this one. I’m anxious to get a hold of the Cincinnati history!
The details: Sunday, November 24, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Mohawk Building, 2145 Central Parkway, OTR. Credit cards accepted!
I’m going to try to make it to both! And maybe do some wall painting too! I always get this way before the holidays hit. Super anxious to fit in the house stuff before the traveling and parties start up.
