The staff at ALIVE is out to prove that holiday shopping doesn’t have to be an impossible feat—which is why we decided to throw our first ever Handmade Holiday Party tonight at Monarch in Maplewood.

Caramel Apple Cocktail by Pinnacle Vodka

Complete with cocktails, plenty of local handmade shopping vendors to peruse and live music by Beth Bombra and DJ TrashTalk, it’s the perfect recipe for a stress-free start to getting those names checked off your shopping list. Be sure to snag your tickets before the party starts; VIP and regular tickets are still available. 

30 Local Handmade Vendors
ALIVE is proud to welcome 30 vendors showcasing handmade, locally sourced and ethically imported items that will make unique, quality gifts for anyone on your list. Browse Scarlett Garnet’s handmade jewelry, men’s threads from East + West, a stylish bandana for your dog at Pawsh Accessories and much more.

Cocktails Galore
What better way to get through shopping this holiday season than with a cocktail in hand? The Handmade Party will feature plenty of spirits to keep in you in good cheer—including the tasty concoction pictured here, courtesy of Pinnacle Vodka. Sample one (or two) at the Handmade Party—or serve and enjoy at your next holiday soirée.
