MANLY MART Feb 8, 2014 12-6pm at Mahall's in Lakewood

From our friends at Crafty Mart:
Manly Mart Valentine’s Show

February 8, 2014 From
noon until 6pm
Mahall’s 20 Lanes
13200 Madison Avenue Lakewood,

Lakewood, OH: What better way to say “Will you be
mine?” than with a new beard accessory, some brewing
supplies, guitar equipment, comics, records, or
something handcrafted
out of leather or cast iron?
Just in time for this Valentine’s Day, Manly Mart will be set up at Mahall’s 20 Lanes in Lakewood
with a plethora of thoughtfully handcrafted wares for that special dude in your life.
After attending and participating in dozens of craft shows with his wife, Mathias Noble King,
founder and organizer of the event, recognized a need for a marketplace geared towards men.
“Ladies are easy to shop for on Valentine’s Day— jewelry, flowers, a candlelit dinner,” says King,
“But a gift that a dude will appreciate takes a little extra effort, and Manly Mart can help make that
a little easier.”
There will be more than just arts and crafts at Manly Mart. All 20 of Mahall’s lanes will be open for
bowling during Manly Mart Eats and libations will be available from the Mahall’s kitchen, and Yelp
will be providing free gift wrapping to make Manly Mart Valentine’s Show a onestopshop.
Manly Mart Valentine’s Show is being put on by the people that bring you Crafty Mart, Akron’s
biannual and long running alternative arts and craft show.
Come pick up some gifts for yourself or a loved one, roll some balls, drink some craft brews and
stick around for live music after the event. For more info, check out the event page on Facebook
and make sure to RSVP
