Iâ€™ve been sparkling up the studio this week to make more beaded pieces.
Then I tagged all the newbies for the upcoming 3-day sale.
Tomorrow Iâ€™ll be setting up in front of See Jane Sparkle for the Evanston Sidewalk Sale.
Iâ€™ll have a table in front of 1312 Chicago Avenue from 10 am to 4 pm July 29, 30 and 31.
Depending on weather, Sara Jane will have my wax and wire pieces inside.
My swarm is also planning on fluttering in.
You can look for Sparkly Angel in the store too, along with her friends.
This year the sidewalk sale extends down to Main Street, so be sure to visit my favorite shops there as well, including The Collage Cafe, Cultivate, Hip Circle Studio, and more.
There will be a variety of specials offered by retailers.
In downtown Evanston a few artists will pop up over the weekend, so plan toÂ head toward Fountain Square and see whatâ€™s going on.
To get to See Jane Sparkle you can take theÂ CTA Purple lineÂ to Dempster Street or on the weekends, theÂ CTA Red LineÂ to Howard Street and then the Purple Line to Dempster Street. You can also take theÂ Metra UP-N LineÂ to the Dempster station. Downtown Evanston is just a few blocks from Dempster Street and a few more from Main Street so you can easily walk between the districts.
If you’re driving, there are threeÂ City of Evanston parking garagesÂ in downtown Evanston, there is metered parking on the streets and free parking on side streets (like Hinman Ave.). Parking is $1/hr and it is free on Sundays.
Visit theÂ Main-Dempster Mile Facebook page to learn about the deals at participating stores and other fun activities on Dempster St., Main St.Â and Chicago Ave.
