Events: Pop-Up Shop

pop up shop

Just when we thought all the fun was over – we’ve decided to host one last event to bid Pierogi Picnic adieu – a pop-up shop!

Join us on Saturday, August 23rd from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Chicago’s famed Nettelhorst French Market, just north of Belmont off Broadway and Melrose. We will be selling all of my remaining eco-friendly creations at steep discounts. Plus – we’ll have a buy two get one free special running all day!

Come on out to see us to help the brand with a proper send-off. See you there!

Events: Renegade’s Chicago Holiday Market 2012

Big news hit my inbox Monday – Pierogi Picnic has been accepted to the 2012 rendition of Renegade’s Holiday Market! It will be my second time participating in the December show and am so excited for the opportunity!

I am also really looking forward to partnering with my good friend and creative cohort Caitlin Peters of Wanderlustings. Her new jewelry collection has me absolutely smitten. Between her beautiful and intricate trinkets and my brightly colored fabric baubles we’re going to knock the socks off this year’s fair goers!

So for the next month and a half expect lots of sneak peeks and previews of what’s to come at this year’s event! I’ll also be picking your brains closer to the date about booth setups and merchandise via the Pierogi Picnic Facebook. So be sure to stay tuned!

Pierogi Picnic will be hawking our wares alongside 14 other incredible indie artists local to Chicago in the “50/50 The Blurring of Art & Craft” show. Come out on Friday for the neighborhood’s monthly First Fridays gallery walk and swing by our show to say ‘hi.’  David is running our nook solo that night so if you come out shower him with some extra love. The show takes place 6-10pm Friday, and 12-7pm Saturday and Sunday. Food, baked goods, music, and amazing handmade goodies and art will be there – and so should you!
