Here, Krista (and Harris) model one of the fetching new Soup and Bread aprons. Available for ten clams ONLY at tomorrow night’s Hideout Holiday Sale (or, from me, out of the back of my car, if you’re enterprising). Those are tomatoes on the bib there.
Tomorrow we will also have books (duh) and our remaining stock of Paul Dolan prints. Get ’em while supplies last! They were a hot seller at Schuba’s Indie Arts Market this past Saturday. One lady couldn’t choose, and wound up leaving with 11. (And lady, thank you. You made it worth getting out of bed that day, which was quite a challenge.)
Plenty of other last-minute gift ideas at the Hideout Tuesday as well, including adorable knitwear by Sheila, some really cool mats (rugs?) made out of repurposed belts by Lissa Treger, gorgeous photos and photo-collages by Mark DeBernardi, lots of swell Kiku Handmade Glass, pom-pom hats by Andrea Jablonski, and ajvar and yarn by Vera, who went above and beyond this weekend and doubled as our west-side sales rep, hawking cookbooks at the inaugural Empty Bottle farmers market on Saturday and the Logan Square market on Sunday. Nat and Michelle will be selling whatever mutant stuffed animals are left intact after a fire devastated their home on Thursday night, and Celestial Kitchens is on site as well, selling holiday gumbo and delicious bacon-cheddar scones. So c’mon out! The predicted ice storm shouldn’t have started … yet.
The sale runs 6-9 at the Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia. Stick around afterward for the Sanctified Grumblers and cheery-if-sleep-deprived bartending from yours truly.
