Thought the Eastside's official boundaries are very much still up for debate, its abundance of artsy enclaves and hipster 'hoods is not. If you've already penciled in this Saturday's Eastside Handmade pop-up market in Highland Park, consider adding Mt. Washington Made's first-ever craft fair to your indie shopping itinerary.
Taking place from 9am to 1pm at Mt. Washington Elementary, the inaugural bazaar features locally-made apparel, accessories, jewelry, housewares, art, ceramics, home goods and more. Expect to find wares from designer resale shop Gift of Garb, Lucky-loved basics designer Jesse Kamm, luxe jeweler Loren Stewart, Eastside Handmade alumnus Knotwork, colorful ceramics creator Pauline Wolstencroft, artist Monique Van Genderen, Mt. Washngton Pottery, and many other local talents. If you plan on making a day of it, the school's also hosting a pancake breakfast ($5 for kids, $8 adults) that includes gluten-free and veggie options. Your dollars earn you brownie points, too—proceeds from the feast and the fair will benefit the Mt. Washington Elementary's enrichment programs.
