Come to the Handmade Brigade Holiday Show December 7th 11am – 6pm: the entire second floor full of fabulous crafts!!!

We're in the Hawthorne neighborhood of Philadelphia. We're often lumped in with Bella Vista to the east and South Philadelphia which officially begins south of Washington Avenue. Our building is always buzzing with our many creative businesses and art studios.

Three annual events where the building is open the public are Philadelphia Open Studio Tours (POST) each October, a craft show in November, and the Handmade Brigade in early December. 

One exhibition venue is ARTSPACE 1241. It features our tenants and some guest artists each month and is generally open Fridays + Saturdays 1 – 4 PM, look for the phone number to call for entry.

Our close proximity to the Italian Market is terrific for us and our visitors. It's an authentic taste of Philadelphia!
