IMI Shop Small Shadyside Wrap Up


Yesterday’s Crowd at Shop Small in Shadyside

I Made It! Market never fails to put on a good show!

There was food, a fun atmosphere, and the space was great. I can image it was a bit challenging to get everything well-organized for a second floor event, but marketess Carrie Nardini (the creator of IMI) and her helper elves are seasoned pros and did not disappoint

PictureDon’t worry about playful little Portia and Mercedes – They both found new homes yesterday!

If you couldn’t make it out to Shadyside, that’s okay! There’s still several more weekends of it coming up. I won’t be showing there, but you’ll still be able to find a bunch more handmade goods from Pittsburgh-area artists. I don’t know if the Animal Rescue League will be there with more adoptable cuties, but you can always ask.

Speaking of supporting local artists, there’s SO MANY ways to do that here in Pittsburgh in the next few weeks; it’s awesome! In addition to all of the IMI events going on, I’m selling tickets for the RAWartists Holiday RAWk event coming up on the 10th, from 7 PM to midnight. There are more than 40 artists participating, including painters, photographers, fashion designers, bellydancers, models – The list goes on. RAW shows are always loads of fun and a great way to liven up your week!

You can buy tickets through my artist page my artist page or by sending me an email. You can even message me through our Facebook page if you like. They’re $15 if you buy them from me, and $20 at the door. I hope to see you there!

2014 Holiday Season Shows

The Holiday Season is upon us, so you can bet that we’ve got a bunch of shows coming up! We’re going to be BUSY.

First off, we’ve got two RAW Artists shows coming up, one this month and one in December. If you’ve never been to a RAW show before, they are nothing like your typical art show. There’s music, runway shows, films, dancers, paintings, photographers, a cash bar – It’s pretty much an art party! Tickets can be purchased through an artist’s profile page. I’m not selling tickets for the show in Richmond, but my fellow Yinzers can buy them for Holiday RAWk by sending me an email. We can use Square or PayPal, and after the Current ticket sales are over you can get them through my RAW artist profile.

November 20: Current – Richmond, VA
December 10: Holiday RAWk – Pittsburgh, PA


I also have two other Pittsburgh events that I’ll be in, with the first happening in Shadyside on Small Business Saturday! If you’ve not heard of that, it’s the Saturday after Black Friday, and the goal is to support small, local businesses on that day in lieu of shopping at the big box stores in your area. If you’re too tired from Thanksgiving to even venture out in the days after it, that’s okay – It’s happening again later! I won’t be at the next ones, but you can support your local small biz people all the same.

If your holidays weekends are as busy as ours, you can still shop small. My work will also be in the Sweetwater Center for the Arts Holiday mART. There will be lots of other goodies there for the art lover on your list, and it runs for a whole week!

Holiday mART Info & Times In addition to our upcoming Sinclair Jewelry holiday shows, we’re even doing an event for Brian’s new book! We’re going to be at the Steel City Con with copies of his book to buy and some merchandise to go with it. It’s a three day event starting December 5th, and it’s perfect for getting your geek shopping out of the way.
