WHERE: Caffe Vita's Bean Room
WHAT: Wrap up your holiday shopping this weekend at Brite Collective's annual Blak Designmart pop-up shop. The two-day event features thirty-plus designers, artisans, and stuff makers including Seattle Met favorites Ampersand as Apostrophe, Irene Wood, Ladies & Gentlement Studio, Maiden Noir, Object, and many, many more.
In line with Seattle's dark and dreary winter, designers will present limited edition black-themed products. Looking for something a bit brighter? Never fear, a separate designmart hosts artisan goods outside of the theme.
As if shopping local wasn't doing enough good on its own, the event will help support the Seattle Design Foundation, a new non-profit aimed at creating social and financial platforms for local artists.
WHEN: The pop-up is open Saturday and Sunday, December 15 and 16 from 11 to 5 each day. Stop by Saturday night's black-themed evening reception for delicious treats and a chance to mingle with the designers from 5 to 8.
