Sunday, Sept. 25 – Afflatus Handmade Art Bazaar
We hope the organizers of this art bazaar, which features all women artisans and women-owned small businesses, will forgive us for this, but afflatus? Really? Sure, it means something good – a strong creative impulse – but it sounds, at best, stuffy and academic. And considering what this bazaar has to offer – our favorite teeny cupcakes, cool vintage clothing, gorgeous handmade jewelry – it sounds like this event will be anything but afflatus. At least not the visions of afflatus that dance in our heads whenever we hear the word. Anyway, $5 gets you in the door (it also gets you one free summertime shandy), and once inside you can shop for housewares, crafts, art, jewelry, clothing and more. A couple of DJs will be spinning, the bartenders will be pouring craft beer and wine, Love is Love will be serving vegan food and you can support your favorite local women-owned businesses. A portion of the proceeds from Afflatus – god bless you – will be donated to Harbor House of Central Florida, which helps survivors of domestic violence take control of their lives. RSVP and get ready to part with your money. – Erin Sullivan (4-10 p.m. at Redlight Redlight, 745 Bennett Road; $5; 407-893-9832; redlightredlightbeerparlour.com)
