This Thursday, head down to Josephine’s Redeemed Boutique at 1961 Bay St. in Port Orchard. The vintage decor shop will be holding their Holiday Gala from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. complete with candlelight, food, drink and prizes. I’m sure the place will be absolutely bursting with all manner of vintage and handmade holiday inspiration. Plus, the first 100 people through the door will get a gift! You’ll also have a chance to meet the vendors, and some will be having specials. Sellers of handmade items or art will be available to take custom orders. This little event sounds like a magical way to get in the Christmas spirit and find unique gifts for all of the loved ones on your list!
Valley Vintage Market is an exciting monthly flea market held at the Central Valley Road Grange Hall. This month’s event is Friday the 18th from 3-7pm and Saturday the 19th from 9am-4pm. You’ll find all sorts of vintage treasures and re-purposed furniture, as well as work by local artists. Check out their facebook page for additional sneak-peek photos. The market’s address is 10140 Central Valley Road, Poulsbo.
This month, I’m excited to discover the illustrations and chalk-work of Poulsbo artist Brynn James, who recently won the nation-wide mug design contest for Starbucks. Her chalk-painted silver trays would be a sweet accent in just about any room of the house.
