Hey San Antonio peeps! Really excited to share this event with y'all! First show of the year I'll be participating in and it's going to be the first time I show work in SA.

If the weather is all good, I'll be there so it'd be really cool to meet some of y'all! Family friendly event so invite everyone you know. Hope to see you there!

Hecho a Mano - Two-Day Holiday Bazaar!

 

Friday, 5-9PM & Saturday, 10AM-4PM
Free parking downtown after 6PM

Hey y'all! If you missed out on our Small Business Saturday event, you're just in luck! Our next event will be a two-day holiday bazaar at Gallery201! Lots of local vendors and handmade goods to shop from. It's never too early to buy your christmas gifts and give the gift of fantastic original art! Free Swag Bags for the first 25 customers who purchase $25 or more, and a free gift wrap for anyone who purchases $30 or more! We have Letters to Santa Make-n-Take table for the kiddos, and complementary hot coffee for all!

We'll still be having our in-person deals:
- $5 off Tank Tops
- 50% Large Screen Prints
- $2 #NoDAPL Pins (all proceeds from these will be donated to Standing Rock)

Gallery 201 is located right next to Bethany House. We'll have our Hecho a Mano banner displayed outside but if you get lost, the gallery is one block east of the Center for the Arts and located in the middle of the block! Since it is a historical building, they're not allowed to put up a permanent sign so it's kind of a hole in the wall. Still can't find it? Message me over social media or email me at moonhowlerpress(at)gmail(.)com and I'll help you out!
