Blink and You'll Miss It: Special One-Night-Only Events at J.Karma and Art in the Age

J.Karma Boutique's Summer Shoe Blow-Out Event is Thursday, June 23, from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m.  The Old City boutique is readying itself for a downsize by phasing out its inventory of footwear by Big Buddha, Jeffrey Campbell, Clarks, and more -- shop the sale before shoes disappear from the boutique for good.  Shoes and sandals will be marked down by as much as 75 percent, while select handbags and jewelry will be 20 percent off during the event.  Further sweetening the deal, J.Karma will be doling out complimentary cupcakes and summery cocktails.

Old City's Art in the Age is hosting a free Natural Dye House Workshop on Thursday, June 23, from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. The founders of Blueredyellow, a Philadelphia-based design and natural dye house, will demonstrate natural dyeing techniques; event-goers will be invited to dip-dye their own handkerchief into a naturally-fermented vat of indigo dye.  The workshop is free to attend, but space is limited -- R.S.V.P. to Daniel[at]

Sustainable Terrariums
Thu., May 26, 6 p.m., free, Art in the Age, 116 N. Third St.

Once you've polished off the last delicious drop of ROOT, it's hard to say goodbye to that bottle — it's just so damn pretty. Art in the Age — purveyors of the aforementioned bespoke liqueur and its gingerbready sister, SNAP — has concocted a clever means to keep those ROOT remnants around without turning your living room into a bottle-lined frat house. Dave Seator and Louis Cook encourage Earth-friendly artistry with their Sustainable Terrariums workshop, in which they'll teach reduce/reuse/recyclers how to make tiny ecosystems inside those aesthetically pleasing empties.
