Tomorrow! Rain or shine... okay rain, but it's indoors at the amazing Gasa Gasa! Sport that fancy trenchcoat and those golashes or shrimp boots you never get to don in the sunshine and support local writers and artists! Art makes the perfect gift for yourself or others! We'll be offering books, photographs, illustrations, and postcards. Find my table and tell me I sent you!
