One of the big trends this holiday season is purchasing from local artisans.  Kansas City residents have an opportunity to get a jump start on holiday shopping (or pick up a little something special to treat themselves!) and do just that this Friday from 5p to 10p at the West Bottoms Co-Op Handmade Holiday Sale.  Owl+Mouse (who also carry a line of green items) is featuring circus themes in some of their textiles, which feature custom, limited edition designs on hand-dyed fabrics such as this blocked scarf.  Clothing, jewelry, ornaments, stationery, and ceramics will be featured.  This is so much better than Black Friday!  Light refreshments and great shopping…1229 Union Avenue, Kansas City, MO.
