Black Sheep Bazaar VI (free)

  • High Noon Saloon 701 East Washington Avenue Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

The Black Sheep Bazaar is a pop-up marketplace featuring wares from local illustrators, artists, woodworkers, and more. It leans a bit more toward the edgy and adventurous than your average craft fair, giving people a chance to buy some truly odd but wonderful items, like found object and bone jewelry by OSOCULT Crafts, pop-culture hand stitching by Stitch Boom Bang featuring your favorite 90's rapper or 80's horror movie villains, surreal and astral prints from Dead Meat Designs, and the dark storybook drawings of Ashlie Brophy. The Bazaar will also feature some handmade, humorous soaps by Reek Havoc and body products by ShnazzyDory. Co-organizer Claire Warhus of Snaggle Tooth Arts (the talent behind Tone Madison's first ever t-shirt) will have prints, wood-carved ouija boards, and leatherworks. At this edition of the event, 10 percent of all sales will be going to Planned Parenthood, as will all proceeds from a raffle. The vendor list is sprawling and peculiar so hopefully you can find a gift or three for the holidays amongst the oddities, or maybe just one glorious Pizza Butt to gift yourself. Tone Madison will be curating and hosting a DJ booth throughout the event, featuring wide-ranging music selections from Jenni Ladd of WORT's Leopard Print Lounge show, Grandma Cyd of WSUM's Heavy Petting Zoo, Madison musician Emili Earhart (whose projects include the avant-garde duo And Illusions, and who also contributes to Tone Madison), sharp house and techno spinner DJ Quinley, Sarah Akawa, and DJ Allison of Madison band Exploration team. —John McCracken
