We love us some cool crafts, so we can’t wait for tonight’s INDIEana Handicraft Exchange “Holiday Mini” event, 5 p.m.–10 p.m. at the Harrison Center, 1505 N. Delaware St. While First Friday is going on in the rest of the building, the gym will be packed with vendors peddling their wares—like these way-cool growler bags. Handcrafted by the Growler Girls, they’re like wine bags for hipsters. We’re also loving the handcarved pipes from Travis Vanest. Find these and more at the Holiday Mini, tonight only, free admission. More info here.
Is it a shop? A party? You decide after attending the third annual Yelp’s Totally Bazaar, 6 p.m.–10 p.m. Thursday, December 12. One of the best holiday shopping events in town, this year’s bash at the Old City Hall (former home of the Central Library), 202 N. Alabama St., will fill three floors with food, drink, shopping, and entertainment. Sip mulled wine while perusing goods from more than 90 businesses selling everything from wooden stamps to homemade crayons, and don’t miss the Indy Film Fest screening room, new this year. 202 N. Alabama St. More info here.
Slippers Too Cute to be Slippers
Hey, we’d run out to the store in them—so long as there’s no snow on the ground to sully the bright red wool-cashmere. Lined with faux fur, the Michael Kors “Quinn” ballet slipper is the perfect lounging shoe. We’re loving it in holiday red, but it also comes in black and natural. They’re $78.95 online or at Nordstrom at the Fashion Mall.
