The Well-Crafted "I Love You" 

Valentine's Day approaches. The pressure to come up with a seemingly unique and thoughtful gift for your soul mate/spouse/fiancée that is obviously not a last-minute purchase is building. But if the sight of card aisles, heart-shaped boxes of candy and any combination of red and pink sends you into panic mode, the Indie Valentine craft show is the perfect shopping alternative for you. Presented jointly by Cranky Yellow and the STL Craft Mafia, Indie Valentine offers handmade art, clothing, jewelry — as you might expect — as well as hip gift possibilities such as certified organic coffee (9 Bars Coffee) and fun and funky baby-momma items (South City Slings). Live music and a cash bar enhances your shopping experience. So forget the dozen roses (they'll be dead in a week anyway) and get to CooperElla Café (2743 Sutton Boulevard, Maplewood) between 7 and 10 p.m. for a handmade gift that will truly impress your valentine.
