The turnout was fantastic for the pop up shops, handmade event, “Dr. Who Charity Art Show Extravaganza”, and Grilled Cheese Truck.
We loved all those who came out and supported local handmade, original art and charity. If you were among one of the many attendees, you would understand how awesome the whole day was.
This was our first event during the day and the weather was gorgeous! As soon as the event started, the guests began arriving quickly. Some who attended were for the charity art show, Naranjita Flamenco’s performances, and for shopping at the craft event. No matter what they came for, they were surprised at the many different festivities going on.
The Dr. Who charity gallery raised almost $2000 for the “Friends and Helpers” charity because of wonderful collectors of all ages. There were 65 pieces donated to the gallery from all over the world and almost every piece sold. The Tiki Machine Shop did a wonderful job organizing the art show and we were so honored to have it run on the same day as our event. Their shop will be closing at the end of December, so be sure to stop by before they are gone. They will be having more galleries at Community in the near future.
One of the pop up shops for just 2 weekends (wish it was longer) was called, “A Cookie Club” by ToastyCo. Their shop was filled with vegan and gluten-free baked goods, we could swear they were not good for you because they were scrumptious! Along with the delicious baked goods, they offered chai tea, boxed water, and more. We hope to have them back again soon.
The Makery craft studio was filled with students learning to make needle-felted terrariums. The studio offers many workshops to choose from, make sure you check out the calendar. It is always so fun to watch students create and learn wonderful new hand making skills.
One of the other pop up shops, Cat MacGregor Photography, was offering fun photo booths inside of her gallery. Her store front was showcasing her work in a beautiful gallery while offering photo sessions in one of the rooms. To book a session with Cat, please inquire through her website. Her pop up studio and gallery will only be open until the end of December.
Every event needs amazing food, along with baked goods, so we invited the Grilled Cheese Truck. It was hard to choose what sandwich we wanted, so everyone shared about what one they chose. We think it’s a good idea to have them back so we can all try something new:)

During the event, Naranjita Flamenco came out and performed for our guests, and, as usual, were extremely entertaining. Everyone gathered around quickly to watch all ages perform on stage. If you would like to inquire about dance classes for beginners-advanced, please email through the Facebook page.
We hope to have you all back again, and if you missed it, please make sure to follow us on Facebook to learn about monthly events at Community and our shop’s quarterly shows. A Little Known Shop’s next event will be March 15, 2014 for our annual CRE-8-BIT theme, which will include video game/pixel handmade merchandise, art and more! Hope to see you there!
Our “Handmade for the Holidays” vendors:
So many people showed up to support local artists with our Day of the Dead art gallery and had a lot of fun with the festivities set up for them.
At Terra Maya’s booth you could find several one dollar crafts to do with the Dia de Los Muertos theme. Guests stayed occupied designing shadowboxes and other trinkets. You can Terra Maya’s merchandise at A Little Known Shop.
Naranjita Flamenco Studio did several performances and filled the courtyard with rhythms using their shoes, hands and voices. Families were gathered around and in awe of the talent. Dancers were as young as 4 years old.
The Makery craft studio was teaching how to make Papel Picado Banners. Her studio was full of customers eager to learn.
The Tiki Machine Shop, which is a pop up shop in Community that will be open until January, had Rosita dolls for sale along with books such as “Rosita y Conchita” and “Paquito y Abuelito” by Eric Gonzalez and Erich Haeger.
Craft vendors were set up with only Day of the Dead themed handmade merchandise.

In the courtyard you could find our favorite tamale vendor, Ruben, who always has the best tamales around! It seemed like his line was never ending and we were so happy to have him back again.
Face painting was offered by Lacy Ink. for this celebration of life and everyone lined up quickly. The next day, Eva offered her services again at the shop for the 2nd day of Day of the Dead.

Our gallery was filled with beautiful art pieces. We were so honored to have such amazing art hanging in the gallery.
The talented local artists who had contributed to the gallery:
Inside the shop, our main table was featuring all Day of the Dead themed merchandise. We had so many items including jewelry, magnets, art prints, buttons, purses, aprons, and house wares. Some of the items remain at the shop, so make sure you come by and purchase some goodies to represent this festival all year long!
We plan on doing another event next year, so please mark your calendars!
Take care of all of your holiday shopping done at our craft show! Give the gift of handmade — your family, friends, and local makers will love you for it.

Soaps & other body products
