What do you want to do this Sunday afternoon? Go to a party with local fashion designers and artists? That's what I thought. Andy Lifschutz is helping organize just that, and here's what he has to say about it:

We are inviting both designers and the public over to Mercy Studios from 1p.m.-5 p.m. this Sunday the 20th. We are encouraging people to bring their own handmade goods to barter or trade with. Selling at the event will be Church and State, Emily Katz, Stone and Honey and myself. We are inviting designers to bring snacks, gifts for an exchange and some bubbly for everyone to enjoy. The house will be providing some of this as well. We hope to offer an alternative to the last minute shopping madness out there in a relaxed and social environment.

Mercy Studios is at 537 SE Ash, St. #25.

That's the kind of holiday shopping I can get into.
