“Typewriters are alive and well, even in an age when we’re so used to picking up our phones,” said Aaron Therol, founder of Typewriter Connection. “Tactile art and gifts are a welcome change from our digitally dominated lives … that’s why an event like The Very Merry Winter Market is so special. It’s a welcome opportunity to meet artists, writers, poets and craftspeople who create unique art and gifts.”

Two local businesses are participating in the holiday market. South Pasadena’s own Raices will be offering natural skincare products and Cairn Cookies based in Alhambra will have truly homemade cookies that take you back to simpler, more delicious times.

“A Very Merry Winter Market” will take place Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021 from noon to 6 p.m. at As We Dwell, 441 Seaton St., Los Angeles, CA 90013. Parking and admission are free, but registration is encouraged at this link.
