Quite Delightful!

We are winding down to the last 3 days of the Christmas Market being open! Last weekend was fantastic with local musicians getting shoppers to dance it up to 12 Days of Christmas and our Giveaway Sunday sending out lots of fun handmade gifts to winners of the day. Our 5 gift workshops inspired kids and adults alike to try something new and bless someone on their list with their own sweet handiwork.

Today we'll try to open early at 3pm (until 9pm)...and you'll find another new array of gifts as you finish your list! Friday we are open 10am-9pm and Saturday 10am-5pm! Below is a new box of screenprinted jersey scarves and hand towels:::
To top off the weekend both Friday and Saturday will have free gift wrapping with purchase using handmade bags like these and more!:::
Thank you to everyone for all of your amazing support throughout these last 5 weeks! Hope to see you these next couple days...and then for our Craft Fest February 25!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Unglued Crew, Justin and Kelsey's, top picks!

Whew! Another awesome weekend this time full of gift workshops and a great Etsy workshop, too! Thanks so much to Chelsea Thorson of Raine Design for presenting a load of awesome info for Etsy beginners and advanced shop owners. Also thanks to The Station House who set up areas for professional photography of items for people and also computer help. We look forward to partnering up again this January for some more focused classes. And, thanks to all you creative people who came out and shared your ideas and asked great questions. Watch here, on twitter, and Facebook for updates!

This coming weekend will entail a Glass Etching (full) and Friendship Bracelet workshop, sample cake balls from Love in the Oven, and a free Christmas photobooth on Sunday - check out for details.

This past Sunday, Kelsey and Justin from the crew chose their top picks in the shop - check them out below.

We asked Kelsey to find her top gift ideas -
*For herself she chose this sweet necklace -
*For her dad she chose either a wood pen or deer antler pen -
(Sidenote: You pretty much NEED to take a minute right now and watch this video on Turning Pro who makes the above pens.

Turning Pro from Ben K on Vimeo.)

*For her mom she chose mittens (we have some awesome bright colors in stock!) -
*For her brother she found the beer mugs -
*For her best friend she liked this necklace -

As we were closing up shop this weekend, Justin ran around to find his favorite items in the shop to share with you!
(he's the poster boy for all the mustache representation in the shop!)

Clicking it with our camera phone doesn't do these (or the above) items justice, but you get the idea!

Justin's favorites:

The Fargo Christmas card -
His favorite print with an Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros' lyric -
His favorite zombie plushie -
He loves this map star -
And specifically loves the man tie with saws and tools...

Once again, we have more new variety in the shop that even we didn't expect! Hope the holidays aren't making you too crazy...stop by for some warm hot cocoa and as Justin says "non-pukey" Christmas cheer:)

From orange walls to blue deer...the Christmas Market is coming!

Here's some photos for your viewing pleasure of some of the work going into this Christmas Market! We have over 70 vendors represented starting Black Friday, November 25 through Christmas Eve and we can't wait for you to check out the bursting variety of handmade gifts! You can check out a whole lot more info at such as our gift workshops being offered to inspire both adults and kids and other events that get released.

The shop started as a dark, orange and purple coloring. As much as we loved the just wasn't holiday-esque or bright enough considering the later nights the market will be open.

Since the shop is happening quite fast, things like the wall of motivation and dan the deer the doorstopper help.

You can also see us at the North by Midwest Craft Spectacular November 19...which you definitely need to make a way to get to there.

You will also be able to catch a candy cane from us at the Holiday Lights Parade downtown Fargo at 6:30pm November 22. (Just imagine Weezer on a holiday float).

Come visit us starting Black Friday! We guarantee it'll be a good time.

(Ok...and we can't wait for the next blog post to share the goodies arriving in the shop right now!
More events are in the works such as a holiday photobooth for you and your acoustic Christmas music...and more...).

And remember applications for Unglued: Craft Fest happening Feb 25 at the Plains Art Museum are now open at!
