Crowds descend on the Unkranian Cultural Center

The Felt Club held their annual holiday sale this past Saturday at the Ukranian Cultural Center in Hollywood. This is a crafty group that meets throughout the year to impart their good craftiness on the public. The place was packed solid with vendors and buyers. There were raffle drawings from the stage and music. There was food, drink and endless amounts of crafty inspiration.

I arrived at around 1:30pm and had to park blocks away due to the crowds. The Uke Ctr. does not have a parking lot. The crowds were so intense, that I could barely move, once inside. I ended up cruising the aisles, taking some photos, saying hello to a few friends and then escaping. I didn't buy anything because I really couldn't see anything that well. The lighting inside the hall was really poor and the booths were way too close together. One smart craftser brought portable lights for her table. She sold lots of stuff. This group needs a larger, better lit venue.

I did see Christine from Tooknap Press. She may drop by the Thursday WeHo SnB this week to sell more of her divine handspun yarn. I also saw world-famous histotainer and L.A. man-about-town Charles Phoenix, looking bewildered. Matt Groening was in attendance too, probably looking for new characters for The Simpsons

Once I was able to make my way back to the front door I spied two hip-chicks eating gelato. I asked them where they got their treats. They pointed to a little shop around the corner on Heliotrope called Scoops. I had a very nice scoop of vanilla and caramel gelato.

This Saturday, many of the same vendors and more will be at the Bizarre Bazaar at the Shrine Exposition Hall near USC. We went last year and it was faboo.

Okay, I'm a bacon lover. Yes, totally. I don't know about bacon gelato though...could be really scary.
