More than 40 local leather workers and jewelers and woodworkers, and more, will be on hand at the show. MyLittleBird is helping the museum showcase the special talents that will be on display at this pop-up market. And we’ll be on hand at the show to say hi.

Such as? Such as jewelry maker Amanda Hagerman, whose delicate confections in 14-karat gold vermeil and argentium silver will appeal to traditionalists and modernists alike. And Katie Stack’s Stitch & Rivet, bags made from leather and/or waxed canvas in no-nonsense shapes that are great for men as well as women. And wooden wares from Christina Boy Designs—cutting boards and even small tables and other pieces of furniture.

We’ll share more details as the time gets closer. Meanwhile, make your plans: Admission is $10 ($8 for seniors) and includes a special photography exhibit at the museum.
