I'll be in Iowa City December 14-17 with a Holiday Pop-Up Shop in the Ped Mall. My store hours will be from 11-7 each day, masks will be required and out of respect for everyone's health, safety and comfort, and to allow appropriate social distancing, I'm limiting occupancy within the shop to one party at a time. I appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to navigate current challenges, and while I welcome the opportunity to show my work in person, I would encourage anyone to take advantage of online ordering with free shipping if it is preferable to you. I'm always happy to interact with my clients, but want to make sure everyone stays safe so I can see your familiar smiling faces at the farmers market and local art shows next year!

November 19, 2020: Holiday Thieves' Market Cancelled
And the last one falls... I'm sorry to announce that the Holiday Thieves' Market has officially been forced to cancel due to the COVID-19 surge in Iowa. Once again, this is a huge blow, but necessary. Please stay tuned for information on a virtual art fair featuring Thieves' Market selected artists. Please be safe, please wear a damn mask, and please look out for one another.
November 16, 2020: The Maker's Holiday Market Cancelled
Due to the current COVID crisis in Iowa, we unfortunately must cancel The Maker's Holiday Market, scheduled for Iowa City December 11-13. This was a very difficult decision, but necessary as the health and safety of our community is of top concern. The Maker's is a small group of artist friends, established in 2019 to pool our talents and provide local, handcrafted artisan goods for the Iowa City community. I'll have a blog post up soon with links to members of our group, and we all appreciate any support and if you'd keep us, and all local small business, in mind through these trying times.
November 9, 2020: ICFM Holiday Market Cancelled
Unfortunately due to the escalating COVID situation in Iowa, this weekend’s Holiday Market in Iowa City has to be cancelled. I know it was a difficult decision and it’s hard for us vendors, but it is absolutely the right thing to do. Looking out for the health of our friends, neighbors, ourselves, and the communities that we love does and should always outweigh any economic consideration. Disappointing as it is, I urge all of my friends, customers, and fellow market vendors to appreciate the priorities that have been demonstrated by the Iowa City Farmers Market in this, and throughout the entire season. We’re all doing the best that we can and market staff, as always, has been incredible in giving us their all. There will be a listing of vendor websites and contact information on the ICFM website. Please be sure and support your favorite local artisans and producers this holiday season, and keep up the good fight to get this pandemic under control so we can all be back together at the market next year.
At this time, the Holiday Thieves' Market and The Maker's Holiday Market are still on, but organizers are monitoring the situation closely and will make a decision in the weeks ahead. Public health and safety will be everybody's top concern. You can check my schedule page for updates on upcoming shows.
Love ya, Iowa City. Be safe out there.
