A couple more posts before the end of the year, then I'll leave you alone for a while.  I promise!
Tonight (12/20/2011) is the last night of the Hideout Holiday sale (6-9, 1354 W. Wabansia)
Do your shopping from a wide assortment of Chicago's finest makers, then stay for the Black Willoughbys.

Each year The Hideout invites a number of talented Chicago artists to display their wares for the holiday season. The quality of work shown is fantastic. The sale will be held in the backroom of The Hideout. Crowds are expected as we have had at least 100 patrons come through on each night in past years.

Big news is that my husband, Jon Langford has created special limited edition prints and is selling them at a very special price for Hideout Patrons.  Here's a collage of the five prints.
You can get a similar octopus as an acrylic art pendant here.
