Can you feel the love tonight? If not, make your way to The Alchemy Initiative Handmade Holiday Festival this Saturday and Sunday, December 6th and 7th for the first stop in the December line up to shop local and handmade. The modern craft fair is curated and features nearly 50 contemporary makers, artisans, designers, and food producers.
There will be loads and loads of "Good Things Made by Good People" and one of those Good People is our very own darling, Wendy Darling. A beloved Berkshire favorite, Wendy delights us all with her warm messages of Peace, Love and Understanding. It’s always heartwarming to stop at her booth and say hello and soak up all the love. She’s sure to leave you feeling twinkly all over, and isn't that what Christmas is all about?
Warm and fuzzies aside, Wendy makes some seriously amazing jewelry and it’s no wonder...she’s worked behind the scenes/stage with a number of stars, including Minnie Riperton, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Alice Cooper and Joan Rivers. It’s always fun to talk about the meaning of stone with Wendy and she’s sure to point you to the right rock to go with your current disposition. She also designs clothes, sells vintage and up-cycled items, and works as a stylist-costume designer. No matter what’s she’s doing, “it’s all about the love” and you’re sure to feel it when Wendy’s nearby.
The Alchemy Initiative Handmade Holiday Festival takes place Saturday, December 6th 10am-5pm and on Sunday, December 7th 10am-3pm at the Paterson Field House at Berkshire Community College in Pittsfield, MA. Click here for details and a map. Click here, to learn more about Alchemy Initiative
