GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. – My nephew’s first birthday party will keep me away from the very cool Avenue for the Arts Market Saturday, but I’d love it if some of you would go and fill me in on the details. (Even though it will pain me to hear about all the great art and creative people I will miss.) This is a great local art market that happens every second Saturday of the month, from 4-9 p.m. in the 100 block of S. Division Ave. Local artists will be selling all sorts of cools stuff including T-shirts, buttons, clothes, paintings, pottery, and other DIY creations.
I met some cool people and bought a pair of sweet Pac-Man earrings at one of these shows last summer. I couldn’t go last month, so I’m holding out hope that I’ll make it to the August show.
