Last-Minute Save

Mona Lucero and Lauri Lynnxe Murphy of the Powerhaüs Studio decided to wait for the last minute to throw their Holidayhaüs market, and there’s a reason for that. It’s because people just naturally procrastinate about holiday gift-buying, only to find themselves up a creek, with no alternative other than the mall. Lucero and Murphy are here to help, offering an alternative market with curated, one-of-a-kind, locally sourced goods.

Merchandise will include edgy, kitschy, fun and just plain beautiful jewelry from Phryne Metal, ChickenMouse, Mind’s Eye Jewelry, Kym Bloom, Giddyup, Celtic Soul, Kym Bloom and Murphy; stylish clothing and accessories by Lucero; and road-trip-inspired stationery, T-shirts, totes and more from Red Camper, among other things. This is the place to find everything from dangly Dolly Parton homage earrings to fuzzy Wild Thing hats with ears; as an added attraction, the Mark Putt Explosion will entertain with hilarious holiday ditties at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Throughout the market’s run — from 6 to 10 p.m. tonight and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow at Powerhaüs, 2900 Marion Street — Lucero and Murphy promise an urbane and relaxing shop-and-shmooze, with holiday drinks for the weary.

Fri., Dec. 20, 6-10 p.m.; Sat., Dec. 21, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., 2013
