some moments i despise shopping and others, like now –thanks to loads of advertising dollars– i want to do it reallyBADLY!  fortunately for several upcoming sale + ooak opportunities, this and next weekends, my desires shall be fulfilled!

handmade porcelain

i’m hoping for a unique piece o’china from KleinReid’s cash-only annual holiday sample sale 12/5 noon to 6pm + 12/6 noon to 4pm @ 135 w 26 (6/7) buzzer #16  <thanks MUG>

oh yes

as a proud member of The {New New} i cannot wait for this weekend’s handmade cavalcade!  think renegade craft fair, but local and therefore more relevant and more satisfying.

rodarte for target

although target will not officially carry their rodarte line until the 20th, 5 pieces <the sequin ribcage dress ($49.99), the black halter dress ($39.99), the coral slipdress ($39.99), + two bow belts ($12.99 each)> will be available pre-wrapped at the 3 day pop-up shop: target to go : 12/11 – 12/13, 10am to 8pm at gansevoort + washington = by the highline entrance <thanks nymag>
