Yep, we’re going to be in Cranberry from 11-5 at our last market of 2017!
Come over to see us and get in some last-minute holiday shopping. I’ll have my coloring books out in addition to the jewelry, too!

See you on Saturday!
Our summer is shaping up to be a busy one! We’ve got a bunch of events added to the Calendar.
April: Blackstone Raid and Steel City Con! Steel City is just books.
May: AEthelmearc War Practice
June: We have a few events pending, so we’ll see what happens.
August: MORE PENNSIC!
So, yeah – Lots going on so far, with the potential for way more, because we have other events pending.
So – Will we see you at any? Are you looking for anything in particular that you’d like to see? Let me know in the comments!
Whether you’re into Valentine’s Day or not, it’s coming, and there’s more to look forward to than day-after discount chocolate.
On February 4th, 10 days before, you can join us and a bunch of other local artists and makers to shop!
So, if you’re looking for something for your sweetheart or you’re single and want to show yourself some love, you should come to SouthSide Works and see what’s in store. Carrie and the I Made It! crew always put on a great show!
Here’s the link to the event on Facebook: I Made It! Mine on FB
I’d post an event link to their website, but they’re in the middle of a redesign right now. It’ll be up soon, though!
It’s 2017! I hope you had a great holiday. Ours was… A little crazy, but we’re fine. Any by crazy, I mean four days of over a hundred mile car rides and the power steering giving out on McKnight, but I digress. We’re fine, and we had fun seeing our families and going to the little one’s first violin recital. It was adorable.
But what’s in store for 2017? Well, aside from planning for our future brick-and-mortar, we’re confirmed for Gulf Wars, a massive SCA event down South in mid-March. We also have an event coming up this weekend, the Winter Food Truck-a-Paloosa!
It’s indoors on the 7th at the Monroeville Convention Center, so you don’t have to worry about crappy weather ruining your food. There’s also going to be music, kids’ activities, and a craft market set up, which we will be a part of! I’m really excited, because this means delicious food trucks that I normally can’t get to at outdoor shows. I’m either stuck alone in the tent and can smell them, whch is torture, or they’re so far away I have no idea what’s there and I don’t know if I can eat it or not, so I usually don’t bother.*
Mac & Gold truck, I got you in my sights. Same to you, Oh My Grille. I’ve not seen Billu’s Indian Grille, but if it’s got chicken vindaloo in it, it’s got my money already.
So, hungry yet? Join us this weekend at the Food Truck-a-Paloosa for some delicious local food! Tickets are only $10, and the proceeds benefit Monroeville Volunteer Fire Department #6.
*Fun Bran Fact – I have an intolerance to mammal meat. I react just like someone with lactose intolerance. It sucks, but I deal. Just gotta watch what I eat. Luckily, there’s PLENTY I can eat on Saturday.
That’s the big question, isn’t it? It’s the beginning of January, so it’s time to make some plans and start getting things done. If you’re in the SCA like us, you probably got some cool new Society-themed toys for Christmas. Now that it’s 2016, you’re making plans to finally get that weaving done, or learn how to sew. Perhaps you’ve got your eye on a top combat spot, and you’re eager for your local practices to start up again.
I know it’s early, but Gulf Wars isn’t that far off. If you meet weekly, you’ve got only 8 or so more meetups until it’s time to hit the field! With that in mind:
What do you need to make your persona complete?
I do metalwork, and I know literally dozens of professional artists and craftspeople. I can help you get your look together in more ways than one! Leave a comment and I’ll do my best to get you in touch with people who either sell what you’re looking for, or who can make it happen. My commission schedule is wide open now that the holiday orders are finished, so if you need metalwork, we’ll get it done.
Fellow Yinzers, there’s no need to panic! You can do all your last-minute Christmas shopping next weekend at the Procrastinator’s Ball. It’ll be at Spirit in Lawrenceville, from noon to 6.
