a while back, i was posed the question: if i had to write a travel guide about Philadelphia, what places would I include? as a lifetime resident of the Philadelphia area, i surprised myself by not being able to answer right off the bat. while i have favorite museums, spaces, and restaurants, i think one of the best aspects of the city is the plethora of cultural activities. if you follow my blog, i post about the art and craft shows i do in the area on the regular. while i won’t be posting weekly like my etsy treasury tuesday feature, i do want to begin including information about other great Philadelphia staples.
first on tap: The Clay Studio‘s annual Mother’s Day clay sale. every year, this Olde City gallery/school/studio space cleans out its leftover inventory from students and teachers alike at rock-bottom prices at the First Friday prior to Mother’s Day in May. even though i’m a printmaker, i am a total sucker for pottery and have a growing collection of pieces, in part due to this great fundraiser. check out what i came away with this year- my total tab was $25!
