I’m not thrilled with the current sate of Christmas. It’s a commercialized affair, in which people crowd the malls, fueled by Starbucks, to check off their gift lists. Not me. I think the holidays are a brilliant opportunity to pick up truly special things for special people. I’ll be making a stop at Wigwam this weekend. Hosted by Oil & Cotton, beloved home of local art classes, this four-day pop-up shop contains an edited collection of carefully designed artisan wares, including leather handbags, jewelry (like our fav jewels from Olivia k), sculpture, plants, blankets, scarves, and even beer. And, apparently, tamales. Awesome.
