The annual South Philly Handmade Brigade returns tomorrow with boatloads (sleighfuls?) of locally-made gifts fit for the holiday giving season. Expect handmade jewelry, accessories, apparel, and charming housewares from a lineup of area artisans that includes SquidWhale Designs, Bathtub Jungle, Janelle Haskin, and Spunk & Vinegar. The event takes place at 1241 Carpenter Street from 12pm to 6pm. [RackedWire]
