When: Sat., Dec. 7 2013
Want to cross off all your holiday shopping in one day? Follow us through today’s holiday market spectacular. Start on Nolensville Pike at Azafran Bazar, the Conexión Américas market for arts, crafts and food — we’ll have coffee and a churro, please. This is Casa Azafrán’s first holiday market, and they’re lauding it as a showcase for their budding businesses. (Read more about that in last week’s Scene cover story on Azafrán founder Renata Soto, our 2013 Nashvillian of the Year.) After you’ve wiped all the churro crumbs off your chin, head to East Nashville art studios to visit Six Potters and a Painter. Potters Russ Harris, Timothy Weber, Helen Hooper-Hirst, Kelly Kessler, Diana Naisby, Donna Rizzo and guest painter Thurman Rivers are offering hand-crafted one-of-a-kind works for your hard-to-please family members — and an easy way to support local artists, to boot. After that, stop by Porter Flea, the always-packed event that has quickly become Nashville’s craftiest destination. Grab a print from Isle of Printing or Boss Construction, a tote for your kid sister, and all the reclaimed barn-wood furniture you can afford.
