If you didn’t get a chance to go to the Kinfolk dinner the other month, here’s your next chance to see what’s going on at Deux Puces Farm.

Creative organizer Tara Derr Webb and friends are unleashing another community-centric event, taking place in Awendaw on December 15. According to organizers, Fiddle Tree is described most simply as “Friends Doing Stuff” and will transform the rural space into a cultural bazaar of crafts, food, and music.

From noon to 6 p.m., you can shop the offerings of local makers like Rewined, Proud Mary, Neve/Hawk, Indigo & Cotton, and many more. Metalworks, home goods, culinary accessories, kiddie clothing, and other goods will be up for sale. San Francisco’s Four Barrel Coffee and the L.A. outfitter Alpha Gear for Gents will also have posts, so you can find unique gifts from beyond too.

Since this is an all-day grazing type of event, you can expect some local food purveyors to make appearances too. Try “savory bits and small plates” featuring the likes of Clammer Dave and Two Boroughs Larder, washed down with the sweet concoctions of Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. You’ll have to go old-school with cash or checks for this part of the day.

If you think you’ll want to remember this event forever, book a tattoo sitting with L.A.’s Shamrock Social Club’s renowned tattoo artist Danny Romo, who’ll be a special guest. To schedule your session, contact Derr Webb at deuxpuces@me.com.

As the event moves into the evening, live music and a bonfire will commence to keep the party alive with even more food to nourish revelers. In the freestylin’ spirit, you can bring your own picnic or purchase a ticket for a supper showcasing Two Boroughs, Butcher & Bee, and Sugar Bakeshop. You can also get a sneak peak of the future offerings of the Farmbar, Derr Webb’s forthcoming project. Expect a wintery menu pulling from the local produce.

Admission is free, and $35 will get you a ticket for the supper (there are only 100 tickets available, so get yours soon). Campers are welcome, and if you choose to stay a “cowboy breakfast” will have you rising with the sun the next morning.

Fiddletree-goers are asked to come prepared, bringing everything and anything you please, from chairs and blankets to picnics and hats — just no pets. For more details or to purchase a ticket, visit fiddletreemakers.com.
