Hot Diggity Holidays! Boy did we have one great market! A huge THANK YOU to all who came out to the first ever Vegan Holiday Shop-Up. We couldn’t have asked for a better crowd packed into Pine Box Rock Shop. Or better weather. A sunny 55? Okay! For those of you too employed or hungover to make it out, see the wrap-up below for tantalizing pics and hi-lights of all the goods you can look forward to for next time. Gifts galore were abundant for holiday shoppers: Twin Peaks scented Soy Candles from Pretty Monsters, vibrant Lip Tars by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Arrowhead Pendant Necklaces from We See Stars, Christmas-themed Letterpress Coasters by Pepper Press, and delicious Apple Syrup from Vegan Secret Supper! From Dun-Well Doughnuts at Vegan Bodega, to Marzipan Sandcastle Cookies at Black and Blanco, chocolate coated Cake Truffles from CakeBites, and Roasted Brussel Sprout Focaccia by Electric Blue Baking, we waddled home fat and happy.
