Cream City Creatives is so excited once again to have Sparrow Collective Gallery as a sponsor this year! With over 100 artists and crafters sharing the space, Sparrow has become one of the leading consignment and gift shops in the Milwaukee area. We want to thank Jessica for being a wonderful supporter not only to us but to all the people she has represented in her shop.
Our second crafter and artist feature today is Dear darlington. Many of you may know her as Steph Davies, owner (and one of our sponsors) of The Waxwing. Steph is a Jill of all trades from her dainty yet sometimes bold jewelry to her paintings which depict every bird you’ve never heard of to every forest animal you love.
Steph will be selling all of her types of work during our fair, and make sure you congratulate her on the new location of The Waxwing!
Besides Ball’N Biscuit Catering, we welcome another food vendor– Pedro’s South American Food. Specializing in empanadas, Pedro has come up with combinations like corn, roasted poblano and cheddar or something sweet like Nutella and banana. Try his version of hot chocolate as well! It’s the perfect food for shopping!!
New vendor spotlight: This year, we are joined by Steenhagen Studios, owned by Ryan and Angela Steenhagen. With the perfect cross of vintage and modern, they have created steampunk items to rival no other. If you have a love for clocks and watches and want that one-of-a-kind gift for yourself or someone else, stop by their booth and see all the beautiful items they have for sale.
Saturday’s spotlight vendor: Fern & Nettle.
Located in Bay View, this lovely company makes handmade soap and body products with scents such as comfrey and mint or pomander, orange and clove. Check out their booth for the latest holiday scents.
Friday’s featured: Plushzilla! Everyone knows and loves these special creatures. No two are alike and if you want one, chances are you want three. With his love of sewing, the Plushzilla creator is coming out with new designs all the time so check out his booth and purchase that special ‘teddy bear’ for you and maybe one for a gift.
And what about food at the fair? Once again, we are offering food from local catering company Ball’N Biscuit Catering! Not only are they familiar with Turner Ball Room Milwaukee Wi because of some of the weddings they have catered there but they also know what some of our vendors and customers like and will be bringing that home made goodness to the craft fair. Stop by their booth to warm up with chili and cornbread and see what else is available in case you need to plan for that special event in your life.
Featured Artist: We are extremely happy this year to add to our list of vendors, Milrawkee Alt.! Milrawkee Alt. is the collaboration of painter Amanda Iglinski (Milrawkee) & photographer/artist- Ryan Laessig (Milwaukee Alt.). With their look at famous Milwaukee landmarks and the creatures ‘protecting’ and surrounding them, Milrawkee Alt’s work has been seen throughout the city in various fairs and shops. We welcome them to Turner Hall on December 13th and know they will fit in nicely!
