Kraftwork is a monthly event, first Thursday of every month 7-10pm. You’ll find local indie crafters selling they’re stuff. Much fun! Keene + I plan to go. We invite neighbors to come out and support our local economy. As you know “Main Street” won’t be getting a bail-out anytime soon! So, come out-n-keep our $dough$ in Atlanta. For event details, see below.
