Best One-Stop Shop St. Louis 2010 - Rock N Roll Craft Show

Is there anything more soul-sucking than elbowing your way through a crowded mall the day after Thanksgiving, kicking other parents in the shins in a desperate attempt to get This Year's Hot Toy? This holiday season, avoid the gridlocked parking lots and take your shopping list to Rock N Roll Craft Show instead. The R N R Craft Show, now in its seventh iteration, uproots the typical shopping experience and plants it in the fun and festive environs of the Third Degree Glass Factory. Rather than sifting through acres of mass-produced bobbles, you'll be strolling down aisles packed with beautiful handmade items from locally (and nationally) known crafters. The vendor lineup for this year's show has yet to be announced, but regularly featured artisans include Erin McAllister, whose gorgeous textile work will delight any serious collector, and Renee Heyer-Starrett, who creates elegant pottery in her Maplewood studio. In addition to the great gift options — which range from jewelry to notecards to sculpture to hand-embroidered onesies — Rock N Roll Craft Show also features live music, refreshments and hands-on craft demonstrations for all ages. Want the first pass at all the awesome items? Pony up $15 for "Red Carpet Black Friday" on November 26. But if you're still sleeping off the turkey that day, no worries. The Rock N Roll Craft Show is open for business that Saturday and Sunday, too; admission is $3 per day.

Hello, I lived in St. Louis for 20 years and moved to Kentucky five long years ago. I design jewelry and other things from upcycled materials and am wondering if I would be eligible to participate in this show if I don't live there. I know it's too late for 2010, but I could shoot for 2011. Thanks so much for your consideration.
