Vintage Button Bracelet Workshop and so much more!

A busy and fun week ahead.  I really only try to look 1 week ahead at a time.  I call not planning too far out in advance being "flexible."  But this time of the year there is just so much going on!  At JB Knacker, we have a full plate of fun stuff coming up.

This Thursday evening (April 29th) from 6-8pm is our Vintage Button Bracelet Workshop led by local artist Mari'l Moses.  Class fee is $35 and includes everything you will need w/ the exception of vintage buttons (but we do have a wide variety available at the shop for you to purchase at a great price for workshop participants).   A wonderful way to make a keepsake piece of jewelry w/ grandma's or mom's vintage buttons.  There are still 4 openings available for this call the shop (515 233-2600) to sign up.

This coming Saturday (May 1st) is Gilbert's city-wide garage sales beginning at 8am.  JB Knacker will open early at 8am and have fun May Day favors (JB Knacker style) while supplies last.  We may even get the "$1 table" out in the side yard (everything on that old table will be $1 each) in true garage sale fashion!

Open Market Night begins Tuesday May 4th.  There will be vendors of all kinds set up outside of JB Knacker and our neighbor, Left Bank Studio from 4-7pm.  This will happen every Tuesday evening May through October.  It's our way of creating a little "community" in our great little town.  If you want to be a vendor, just call the shop (515 233-2600) or email me.  And as you know, all of the shops on Main Street remain open on Tuesday evenings until 8pm beginning in May as well.  Oh, and don't forget to grab your $1.50 burger at The Open Flame...lots going on Tuesday evenings!!

So JB Knacker decided to throw open the old doors to all of you creative types on this night.  Come for Open Craft Night at JB from 6-8pm.  There is no fee.  We just ask that you bring your imagination and any supplies you will need.  We will supply a creative space for you to work on your projects and to collaborate w/ others that love making things.

OK...that should do it for this week.  Stay tuned for updates for next week.  Let's see Mother's Day, more Open Market and Craft Nights to come and announcement of the next JB Knacker Workshop!

It was great to stop in last week and have a chance to visit with you. Your shop is definitely my favorite in North central Iowa! Can't wait to stop again, hopefully in the near future!!!

Can't wait to see pictures of your daughter's vintage prom dress and the dress she wore to the writer's award ceremony!
