Pure Rummage Trunk Show.

...is coming this Sunday!

It's true; City of Craft has invited a select grouping of crafty organizers and makers to open their trunks at the workroom this Sunday and present to you some hidden treasures from their crafty coffers. Unlike other trunk shows this one will only have rummage - craft supplies, deals, quality vintage wares, clothes & more. What could be in their stashes? Who knows?! The curiosity is killing us (and you...sorry).

Thanks to all of the artists who sent in proposals...I am still in awe of the calibre of proposals we received this year, and the proof is in this list of talented artists and crafters.
