Mingei World Arts
Here's to November!

Dear Mingei friends-

November brings Terrific Thursdays, the Decatur Wine Festival, a new art walk and some special sales.

Keep reading so you won't miss anything!

Terrific Thursdays 2010 Terrific Thursdays begin!
It's that time again-- leading up to Christmas, Decatur throws a progressive holiday party every Thursday in November and December (but for Thanksgiving when we are all home feasting!). Come to Decatur for special sales, holiday treats, and visits from Santa Claus. How could holiday shopping be any more fun?

The first of these festive evenings is Thursday, November 4. Come by Mingei, enjoy a glass of wine and some nibbles and get started and saving on that holiday list!

Autumn Art Walk 2010

The Decatur Arts Alliance has added a second Art Walk-- and
it will debut on Friday, November 5! Decatur will be abuzz that evening with art, wine and festivity! Come by Mingei between 5 and 10pm to share a glass of wine, and treat yourself or someone on your gift list to the beautiful work of Sararabrazil.

Sara Brandon, who studied anthropology in both Brazil and the United States, creates modern designs rooted in eco friendly choices, fair trade, filled with color and rooted in natural forms.

The designs are inspired by indigenous North, Central and South American motifs, vintage designs and nature.

We regularly carry Sara's acai seed necklaces, but here is a chance to see her beautiful silver work, too!

Decatur Wine Festival

Come enjoy the annual Decatur Wine Festival on Saturday, November 6th., from 1-6, pm. Metro Atlanta's largest outdoor wine festival will be held on the square in Decatur with proceeds benefiting the Decatur Arts Alliance, which produces the Decatur Arts Festival and many other arts events, free to the community each year. Tickets are $32 and may be purchased in advance only at

The festival will be showcasing organic and sustainably produced wines along with more than 300 other domestic and international wines. There will also be samples of food from many of our outstanding Decatur restaurants as well as live music.

While in Decatur for the festival, come by Mingei for a look at our attractive and practical woven wine bottle carriers from Morocco, sleek wooden wine boxes, and old wine jars from Hunan, China.

Maria Banner Bags on Sale!

These tote and messenger bags made from recycled festival banners that flew over Decatur during the Olympics and other festivals past are now on sale for 40% off! That means you can nab them for $30 or less!
