Atomic Holiday Bazaar lands the first weekend of December this year. Please consider this your personal invitation to join us for Season Nine. Also, the SRQ Art Center is holding their event, Art in the Garden; same dates, same times, located next to the muni building.
Thank you for your nine years of support. When you attend an Atomic show, it’s a choice and an endorsement of creative commerce. Your attendance supports the amazing, talented humans who work so hard to dazzle you with their indie artsy-crafty creations. We are grateful for your loyalty and enthusiasm. Each year, the audience wows me as much as the Atomic vendors. You are just as colorful!

Check ’em out. My vendors have all been on lock down on the elusive, fantasy island of Atomic Misfit Makers. Making all of this just for Y-O-U. Visit us in the Main Auditorium and Bay Front room.
As per tradition, 100 Atomic totes will be passed out to the first 100 adult’ish humans who enter the auditorium.
Black Diamond Burlesque will pass the totes out on Saturday. Who doesn’t like a little eye candy during the lunch hour? The Saturday tote also has a cool giveaway provided by C.A.B. Fayre. One tote will have an insert stating the words “Big Winner” which means, you need to march your behind to the C.A.B. Fayre booth where you may choose one piece of jewelry of any value! To learn more about the C.A.B. Fayre giveaway, CLICK HERE.
Details on the delicious swag in the guts of these beauties will be provided in the next email because the bounty keeps building. Look for sponsor, Atomic Ranch Magazine, the one and only publication of U.S. Mid Century Modern architecture and design.
Never fear, if you can’t make it Saturday, it’s deja totes on Sunday to the first 100 who walk through the doors at the Sunday show too.
Trust me, these totes are worth standing in line for! And once they’re gone, they are gone for good.
Jessica’s Frame Shop has been a long time supporter and sponsor of Atomic and this year is no different. This year look for JFS who will be working the Atomic shows in a large storefront space next to the stage on the main floor. The reason why I am being so logistical is because each year Atomic has numerous print makers, photographers and artists who sell their items unframed. This year, you may visit JFS who is offering affordable mats and frames that have been made from leftover scrap from their shop. Don’t let the word “scrap” scare you, these frames are beautiful. Also there will be blank canvases that have been framed just waiting for an artist to grab and go. Affordable, an array of colors, this shop is the perfect compliment to completing an artsy gift you may be buying for yourself or a friend.
Atomic vendors have generously donated items for this year’s Cat Depot raffle basket. The Cat Depot is a non-kill not-for-profit shelter located in Sarasota, FL. I have never been to a nicer animal shelter. I adopted my cat Jazz from the C.D. last year. The staff and volunteers who work there are a most dedicated team to the mission of C.D. and Sarasota is so fortunate to have them here. A list and pics of the raffle items will be provided on the Atomic website and Facebook page as we get closer to the show. The donations are growing and one lucky raffle winner will be very, very fortunate. I thank you in advance for your generosity and am thrilled the Atomic vendors have been so keen to pitch in with their one of a kind hand made items.
