SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY LIKE >>>

You could spend this weekend with the mall hoard, kicking off your holiday shopping with the frenzied masses. Or, you could celebrate the local-boon that is Small Business Saturday by heading to Uncorked Canvas - a painting studio that offers classes to the masses - for its first annual Craft & Gift Bazaar.

"This is our first year doing this bazaar, as we are newly moved to the Tacoma-area," says Rebekah Slusher, a teacher at Uncorked Canvas. "But we're in this new beautiful studio in the heart of the Theatre District, and we needed to use it for something wonderful!"

Bonus - no Mary Kay or Passion Party tables here!

"Every vendor at our event is a local, small business," says Slusher. "Absolutely no re-sellers, and only hand-crafted wares. Plus, we've made sure that there are no repeat styles or items, so shoppers are sure to find something different at each booth."

The mix of artists will include the likes of Alexis St. John with her fantastical-yet-adorable children's artwork, hand-made jewelry by Suzanne Glazier and Therese Tucker, paintings by Lori Paine and Rebekah Slusher and others. A total of 16 artists will be in the house. Items on sale will include everything from wine charms to steampunk jewelry, Christmas cards to mosaics, ornaments to baby onesies.

There will also be mulled wine and cider flowing freely, treats for all and raffles all weekend long. Saturday only at 2 and 4 p.m. a group of carolers will add some extra festive fun.

Support your local artists and find one-of-a-kind gifts.

UNCORKED CANVAS, SATURDAY, NOV. 24-SUNDAY, NOV. 25, 10 A.M. TO 7 P.M., 711 SAINT HELENS AVE., TACOMA, 253.432.4052
