Handmade Holiday: A Lovely DOSE

Dose Market1

Two Sundays ago, I bundled up and battled the cold and blustery weather to attend the February 2013 DOSE Market. Inside the River East Art Center, I found a wealth of warm people, yummy food and unique gifts.

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, event organizers also gave us the chance to look for love via a game called #dosehearts. Here’s how it worked: you grabbed a pink heart sticker with a number on it, put it on, and sent/read love doses to others by using/following the #dosehearts hashtag on Twitter.

Other interactive activities included an “Inky Love Notes” make and take corner, “Astro-Matchmaker” readings, a “Poems While You Wait” station where a $5 donation and a topic suggestion would yield an original poem and The Traveling Photo Booth.

And of course, lots of fun things to purchase, including avocado olive oil (via d’Avo Avocado), prints, pillows, yarn and mason jar flower arrangements (via Forget Me Knodt). :)

This was my first DOSE Market event, but it definitely won’t be my last. It looks like the next one is coming up on March 10. Tix are $8 in advance and available here.

I leave you with my #dosehearts vine.
