Handpicked, handmade and hip

Fine porcelain pottery from Austin P. Smith Ceramics will be part of the Indie Craft Show.

Rockland — The Fog Bar & Cafe on Main Street will host an Indie Craft Show Sunday, Dec. 9 from 1 to 5 p.m. The show will feature works from a select group of local artisans along with handmade treats from Fog Bar & Cafe, the city’s new gastropub.

Artisans to be featured in this warm and intimate setting are Annie Bailey from A Bee Design, offering animal-inspired creatures made out of recycled fabric, re-usable gift boxes and bags and juggling bags; Maggi Blue from Magpie Creative, offering handmade fused glass and silver jewelry; Lillian Harris from Lillianka, selling a diverse range of well-made and affordable tote bags, purses and accessories for the home made with vibrantly colored natural fabrics; Marcie Howard from Sustainable Stitches, offering one-of-a-kind creations felted and repurposed from wool sweaters — warm, cozy and environmentally sustainable; Lindsay Pinchbeck, a printmaker and the founder of Sweet Tree Arts in Hope, selling block print original cards and American-made kid's appliqué T-shirts (percentage of proceeds goes to arts education and outreach); Leith MacDonald, who will have original, handmade screenprinted shirts, onesies and totebags with a Rockland slant; and Austin Smith, whose Austin P. Smith Ceramics offers an array of fine porcelain pottery.

“There are a ton of craft shows going on in the area this time of year” said Maggi Blue, show co-organizer. “What sets this one apart? It's totally handpicked, all handmade and hosted by the hot new spot in Rockland … it'll be rad.”

The new Fog Bar & Cafe at 328 Main St. is open Wednesdays through Mondays from 4 to 10 p.m. For more information, visit the Fog’s Facebook page.
