More than 60 of the state’s most talented artisans are setting up shop at the same event, giving those who crave funky and fresh concepts, Arizona-loving enthusiasts and anyone else looking to support the local community a chance to shop ‘til they drop for a deserving cause.
Pineapple Triangle’s upcoming vendor showcase is set for 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3 at Unexpected Venue in Phoenix, with 20 percent of all proceeds raised by the event benefiting Lighthouse for Hope, which provides resources, assistance and support for local families battling pediatric cancer. The intimate, community-focused hipster market features goods produced exclusively within state lines, highlighting the hard work of dozens of local artists who share a willingness to give back to the greater good.
Visitors at November’s installment of Pineapple Triangle can browse goods from the likes of A Curious Bird, a purveyor of handcrafted pin cushions, soldered jewelry and unique ornaments, among other treasures, and Windswept Acres, which offers handmade pickled goods perfect for holiday and other gatherings, among them quail eggs, candied jalapenos and Bloody Mary mix with all the fixings. Also up for grabs are original watercolor paintings by Joshua By Oak, many of which feature desert cacti, florals and other botanicals, and guests can also enjoy live music by local acts and snacks from Arizona food trucks while perusing the vendor booths. Tickets for Pineapple Triangle are available for $8 online during presale and $10 at the door, and children 12 and under are always free.
