The night before Hanukkah rain storm/flood here in the Pacific Northwest has left Ruby Re-Usable wishing she were a duck … of course, she IS the main mallard organizing the 5th annual Duck the Malls (along with OFS live events coordinator Audrey Henley and TESC intern Vanessa Lang). We call it Duck the Malls ’cause we can’t call it Fuck the Malls, now can we? (FYI, way back in 2003, Oly expatriate Chauney Peck started this sale but called it “Dec the Balls”) There will be LOTS of recycled craft and arts, as well as cool stuff made from new materials, for sale. Here is more info:
This ain’t no Walmart! This ain’t no strip mall! This ain’t no ordinary holiday bazaar! It’s DUCK the MALLS at the Capitol Theatre, an event to benefit the Olympia Film Society and support local artists. Hipsters, youngsters, and oldsters will be offering a wide variety of local, handmade artful objects at this “only in Oly” indie/hippie/punk craft and arts sale.
