Pineapple Triangle is Arizona’s premier artisan shopping showcase with a purpose, and the next installment of the semiannual event will arrive in plenty of time for the holidays.
Expect handcrafted and custom-designed products galore when Pineapple Triangle takes over The Duce in Phoenix this Fall. Set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4 at 525 S Central Ave. in Phoenix, the shopping event will feature nearly 50 local vendors, an onsite henna tattoo artist, sounds from local acoustic musicians, and an opportunity to support local women and children in need while perusing the booths. Each Pineapple Triangle market donates at least 20 percent of its proceeds to local nonprofits, with Maggie’s Place, an organization that supports pregnant women and parenting mothers in need, serving as this edition’s recipient.
Event attendees can work their way through artisan booths in an intimate, personal setting, checking out the likes of Lois and Leroy, a purveyor of handmade tunic tops and tote bags, among other offerings, and MabreMade, a Gilbert-based artist offering up baby onesies, zippered bags, stationary and other specialty finds. The Brickerie, which can stamp concrete bricks to commemorate special days and events, will also be among those sharing their wares.
This year’s previous Pineapple Triangle marketplace secured more than $3,307 for Arizona Helping Hands, a nonprofit that assists foster families with limited resources, so get that holiday shopping done early while giving back to a great cause at the same time.
