Kicking Off the Holiday Shopping Season Avant-Garde Style


Local Art Show Showcases DIY Artists and Crafters



Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, which means the madness of holiday shopping is just around the corner. With many Pinterest and Etsy inspired artisans and crafters, the 2013 West Side Fall Avant-Garde Art and Craft Show is a great place to start finding those personalized, trendy, and unique gifts.

The show features over 100 local vendors that hand-make each item. Not only are there endless gift options, but the show offers crafts and decorations for the home too! Some handmade items expected in the show are jewelry, clothing, pet fashion accessories, home d├ęcor and more!

Cleveland native and founder, Becki Cooper, personally handpicks the Avant-Garde Art and Craft Show vendors to best suit the needs of the shows’ customers each season.

“The shows are not just fun to attend, but also showcase a lot of creative and unconventional items. As we put on more of these events each season, we are constantly recruiting even more talent with each show. Attendees can always expect to see some of their favorite previous vendors as well as brand new vendors at each show,” said Cooper.

“What’s nice is that everything is very affordable, too,” explains frequent show attendee, Bailey Treister. “I never really liked having the same stuff as other people, and being able to afford unique things on an affordable budget is definitely a bonus in attending the Avant-Garde events!”

The upcoming two-day 2013 West Side Fall Avant-Garde Art and Craft Show will be held November 16th and 17th at the Rocky River Memorial Hall - 21016 Hilliard Boulevard, Rocky River, Ohio, 44116, located next to the recreation center. Admission is $3 and children under 12 are free. There will also be concessions on site. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Drink Local, Drink Tap., a non-profit organization that inspires individuals to recognized and solve our water issues through creative education, events, and providing safe water access for people in need.
The Avant-Garde Art & Craft Shows are based around Ohio year-round. They feature an eclectic selection of the area’s most talented artisans and crafters. A portion of all proceeds goes to charity at each show.
