Small Business Saturday on the 26th

You may have seen a version of this essay in the Press Enterprise recently; please read it and keep it in mind this weekend, when Small-Business Saturday happens around the country and around the corner. It happens right here, at the Moose Exchange, where our Community Market features foods, art and craft, and more, MADE LOCALLY, by people you know. Come on in, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., enjoy breakfast from the Starving Artists (back with us!), and shop local. See you here!

Block printing this Saturday

On Saturday the 12th, during the Community Market, LuAn Keller brings block printing back to the Moose Exchange. From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., you can decorate your t-shirts, tablecloths, and other fabric items, and help us continue work on the community print project started over the summer. All ages welcome to this free event.

Space available at the Exchange

Room 102 will come open on the first of December: 460 square feet of high-ceilinged, beautifully-lit, first floor office/studio/retail/gallery space, behind the double doors just to the left as people come into the building. Due to its highly visible location, the board of the Exchange would like to see it rented to someone or some business intending to keep regular, fairly frequent open hours — a retail sort of space. If you have an interest, please e-mail or call: 203westmain@gmail.com or 570-317-2596.
