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!
Featured Artist, Milwaukee Candle and Apothecary. New to our craft fair this year is Milwaukee Candle and Apothecary. This local company, another Washington Heights vendor, began in 2013. They use natural ingredients for all their candles and body products such as soap and lip balm which also means that most of their goods are vegan. And if you’re looking for something for that special gentleman in your life, stop by their location during Cream City Creative’s craft fair and check out what they have available.
Another Featured Artist is James Steeno Gallery. We welcome back James Steeno for our 2nd year! You may have seen some of his posters, note cards, watercolor paintings, and art maps throughout the city and at the local shops that support him. Stop by his booth on December 13th and purchase a great holiday gift for that someone special! And he helped in the making of our poster!
Thursday’s…A Happy Thought Indeed. Let us introduce one of our new vendors for this holiday season! Founded and created in 2012, Sue Smith of A Happy Thought Indeed makes beautiful and affordable literature and nature inspired jewelry, greeting cards and home decor. We are so glad that she will be part of the Cream City Creatives’ list of vendors and we welcome her for her first season!
Artist spotlight: Leslie Phillips of Orange Pops! We love welcoming back some of the artists and crafters from last year and Orange Pops is one of them. Leslie is expanding her line from what was once just coasters to posters and screen printed towels and other goodies! Check out this local Milwaukee artist at The Waxwing and other fine shops in the area. And when you come to Cream City Creatives craft fair, make sure to stop by her booth and check out what new items she has for the holidays!
