We are all for buying less and having trash-free holidays, but Olympia Dumpster Divers also strongly believes in buying local and handmade, and supporting artists by buying their quality crafts. Thus, Duck the Malls was started, as a venue for artists to sell their work during the height of shopping season, and as a way to raise money for the the Olympia Film Society.
Now in its 13th year, the annual Duck the Malls is happening at the Capitol Theater on December 12, 11 am – 4 pm. An awesome craft sale, it has grown to over 50 local artists offering hand crafted wares, plus a particularly delicious bake sale — all of the artists also donate a homemade baked goodie. So support our local artists, our local independent theater, and our downtown, by coming on down to Duck the Malls! Many of your favorite Olympia Dumpster Divers will be there, including, of course, Ruby Re-Usable, along with Christine Malek, Pat Tassoni, Jennifer Kuhns, Nora Walsh, Shari Trnka, Will Eikleberry, and Mike Cummins (who designed this year’s poster), and others.
