While vending at the DC Craft Mafia’s UNusual Suspects Arts and Crafts Fair earlier this month, I met Jean-Baptiste Regnard, co-owner of Squidfire. Jean is a fun, high-energy guy, with a great enthusiasm for what he does — a real love of his work, which is great to be around. He mentioned that he was hosting an arts and crafts fair in Baltimore in December, so I took a look at the Squidfire site, and saw that they had a great line-up of artisans for a show to be held in a very cool venue. I will be offering my ware’s at SquidFire’s 2008 Winter Art Mart on Sunday, December 7, from noon until 6:30pm. It’s being held at the beautiful Lyric Opera House, 110 West Mount Royal Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21201.
Here’s an announcement I found online: “The 5th ever Squidfire Art Mart will be held on December 7th, 2008 at the Lyric Opera House in Baltimore. Come celebrate the season at a gorgeous venue which will house the regions best crafters handpicked by the guys at Squidfire.com.”
