Hey everyone, just wanted to give you all an update on the next Ritz Crafters show. I was recently offered a new job that requires me to move to a different city. As I'll be starting in January, I'll need time to settle into everything so the regular February date won't happen this year. I plan to continue Ritz in the future, but it's yet to be determined where and when. Stay tuned friends!
Happily shocked that Ritz made this list! Check out some of the other really great events across the country.
HEY! Cannot express enough thank you's to everyone who made today awesome. All the vendors, especially those who traveled, all the volunteers: Jenny, Ben, Cassi, Shannon, Erin, Adam, Sue, Phil, Beyond Entertainment, LLC for the tunes, Banzo and Good Food for sticking it out in the cold to feed us, Art In for hosting our craziness, and THANK YOU to all the shoppers who made a purchase and supported our makers. It takes a boatload of hands to make it all possible, so pat yourselves all on the back for another great year!
Pictures coming soon!
To keep things groovin' during the day tomorrow, we'll have Beyond Entertainment, LLC pumpin' tunes! Husband and wife team Angie and Ryan are true lovers of music. This shines through in their ability to turn any occasion into a great time. If you have a wedding, party, or dance that needs a boost, Beyond Entertainment will be happy to hit the floor and dance along with you.
We'll have TWO food trucks at the show TOMORROW! Banzo will be back with their felafel/Mediterranean perfection, and Good Food will be keeping us healthy with soups, salads, and wraps. They'll be parked at the back of the building, so make sure to grab lunch while you're having the best shopping experience of your life.
And last but not least, wrapping up our vendor spotlights is Harmony Specialty Dairy Foods! They are a 4th generation dairy farm turning milk from the own cows into a plethora of crazy cheeses. With names like Abergele, Kidwelly Castle, and Nut Brown Ale Caerphilly, you know it's gotta be good!
Underground Meats makes handmade, dry cured salami from local sustainably raised heritage breed animals. All meats are made in downtown Madison using traditional old world techniques. You can't go wrong!
Toast Ceramics combines traditional wheel thrown pottery with modern design sensibility. Pieces are carefully designed to feel comfortable and be durable enough for everyday use. Patterns are inspired by natural landscapes and flora and continue inside, outside, and through to the bottom of each piece. Pretty from your hand all the way to the dish drainer.
T.F.Woodworking makes a host of useful, everyday objects that are hand turned on a lathe using a variety of woods or acrylic. Their handcrafted products include pens, bowls, vases, touchscreen styluses, bottle stoppers, candle holders, seam rippers, key rings and more!
