Lumpy Buttons Pop-Up Shop!

Event date Crafts & home Local

Come to Cats Like Us on Saturday, November 10th from 12pm-6pm and shop Lumpy Buttons. Lumpy Buttons felt work is the brainchild of Esther, a working artist based in Buffalo, NY. She loves her city, animals, and life in general, and has created a workshop of cute, goofy and geeky handmade gifts for just about anybody (including yourself!)
