In my role as an apprentice renaissance peddler, I am exploring the
marketplace for some of my artisinal, artist, and knowledge worker
clients, with an eye toward peddling some of their wares for unusual holiday gifts.

Please peruse this list and let me know if any interest you enough for you to hear more. Or, would you like to offer something for the Milwaukee
Renaissance Holiday Gift Catalogue.

Would it not be nice if Milwaukee did not leave Milwaukee for its Holiday shopping?

No need for freeway trips to malls this Holiday Season with the help of the fine artists, artisans, and knowledge workers of the Milwaukee Renaissance
on-line and/or at Bucketworks.
