A Show of Hands
I have just spent the last two long days at the Downtown Holiday Market. It is a wonderful show and many people came by to check out all the great vendors. Even in the rain! However, I know not everyone can get into DC. That is why I wanted to let everyone know I am currently carried at a local shop, which is also one of my favorite stores!
A Show of Hands is a fantastic place filled with mainly local artists. It was just named 'Virginia Retailer of the Year', partly because it supports and encourages the budding craftsperson, as well as the seasoned professional. My stock there includes bags of all sizes, hats and scarves, which all make nice, affordable gifts.
In addition, there is a huge variety of other media and items. Some of my favorites are the hand made soaps, pressed flower magnets and foam puppets.
Check out their website for hours, location and the story behind the store at http://www.ashowofhands.biz.
