We have been working on this event for quite some time and there are lots of exciting things to share, and now you’re invited to Richmond’s premier event for local artisans.  It’s a one day Valentine’s Day pop up featuring your favorite Etsy shops and other local artisans in Richmond, Virginia. The day will be filled with photo booth fun, a Twitter contest and shopping galore. Attendance is free and you will enjoy visiting the artisans behind their creations while you browse unique paintings, unusual jewelry, customized clothing, fun party planning and entertainment ideas, budget-conscious decorating ideas, and lots of other offerings.

This is not a local show just for women – it’s for men too. It’s the perfect place to find that special Valentine’s Day gift, anniversary, birthday, or ‘just because I love you’ gift!

More than 15 prizes will be awarded over the course of the day, so come on down to LaDiff in Richmond, Virginia on February 8, 2014. Check out the website, Viva La Local,  for participating artists. I’ll see you there too, where I’ll be tweeting every hour about door prizes, artists, and much more.
