Who doesn’t love celebrating holiday traditions with vulvas, hot drinks, and ukuleles? We’ve got all that AND MORE for the LAST CraftNight of 2017 at Ye Olde CrafteNighte Crafte Faire!

We’ll have pins, magical spell jars, quilts, buttons, holiday fascinators, skincare products, stained glass jewelry, ceramic art pieces, pottery, clothing, skivvies, pasties, Sno-Globs, and scads of other fabulous gift items for you to purchase! We’ve got music, fanfare, holiday drinks, including a very special HOT DRINK SPECIAL (which we almost never do!), and it’s just going to be a warm and festive and fun night in the bar. More info on vendors etc. on the FB Event! 

The treasure we have at the end of the year, and all the years to come, is each other. While the external whirling and twirling forces of the planet bring us all of the many things they bring (both easy and difficult) may we always be aware of how we can help, soothe, delight, and bring cheer to one another. The wintering sky beckons you toward an enclave of cozy community, a smattering of loving pickled souls on twinkling Sunset Boulevard. Get your butt in here and have a hot cider already because wherever you go, there you are. Give yourself the gift of a hug from us!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Charming Bird Necklace Power Amulet • May 14th, 2014


TONIGHT! Wednesday, May 14th, 2014 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Charming Bird Theme Necklace Kit 
$2 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Special: “The Lyla” • Your Ticket to Urban Paradise!
Expert Craft Ops Specialist and CraftNight Lieutenant, Elaine Walker at the helm tonight!
SPECIAL APPEARANCE by the Ukulele Orchestra of the Western Hemisphere! Serenading you sometime after 9:45 or so…

You know you want to make crafts to the sounds of beautiful strings strumming lovely hits of today and yesteryear, right? And you know you want to stroll the sidewalks of your city wearing a “Charming Bird Necklace” that will charm people so outrightly, so unabashedly, that they’ll just be filled with an elation they can’t describe?

The Charming Bird Necklace cuts through the crap and says things we’re all trying to say: The World is Beautiful, Birds are Rad, Air is for Breathing, People are Nice, It’s HOT in Los Angeles… The Charming Bird Necklace makes it so that you don’t have to say these truths, you can just WEAR them and it does the work for you. It’s highly pragmatic to have an accessory that does the work for you, no?

Wear this Bird Necklace to outings and events and just see how many doors it will open for you. Your Charming Bird Necklace will help you concentrate on your 18-month plans AND your long term dreams. The Charming Bird Necklace is your personal power amulet, enhancing your talents and ambitions! What’s more, the oppressive LA heat will hopefully subside and it will be lovely to have a cooling cocktail, a craft project, friends old and new, and yes: LIVE UKULELES!!!

Be near us, Elaine will probably be wearing a dress that you need to see.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

PS – Do NOT forget your oxygen mask when you take off on your Sky Kanga (see photo)
