posted in: almost famous | 0

1415388778963 I am incredibly excited to announce that The Mermaid & The Crow will be joining Catland Books for their second annual Yeast of Yules!

It will be on Dec 12th, in Brooklyn.  I will be selling my fiber arts (relaunched Goddess Dollies, Dream Ambassadors, Nuno Felted Scarves, and Handspun Hand Dyed Yarn and Ritual Cords), Hand Painted Silk Chiffon Scarves and my soon to be relaunched fixed candles and beeswax candles.  I will also be selling drop spindle kits and teaching ad hoc spinning lessons!

Feast of Fools is proud to present the second annual Yeast of Yules holiday bake sale and gift market!

As the days grow short and a chill wind begins to blow, the time approaches for us to gather together away from the cold and dark around a roaring fire with those closest to us. It is a time to enjoy what has been harvested and share steaming breads and a warm cup.

Your favorite Fools would like to invite you to a very special Yuletide bazaar, where you can discover hand-made magical gifts and treats while Pope Joan II and the Abbot of Unreason share the lore, songs, and traditions of dark and snowy forests and long midwinter nights.

“If you find a friend you fully trust
And wish for his good-will,
exchange thoughts, exchange gifts,
Go often to his house.”
