‚ÄčApril 26: Leather Envelope Wallet Workshop: Join Nathan O’Malley of Leather Works MN in constructing your very own envelope wallet. By using professional leather equipment, high quality materials, and custom embossing techniques, the piece will be well made to give as a gift, but oh-so-tempting to keep for yourself. (5:30-8:30 p.m., 319 W. 48th St., Minneapolis, willfulgoods.com)

April 28: Kentucky Derby Party at Showroom: Three designers are prepared to get you get ready for the races. Jewelry from Milana Stile, hats from Karen Morris Milliner, and dresses + skirts from Kjurek will have you all dressed up for a day of cheering. (5-7 p.m., Showroom, 615 W. Lake St., Minneapolis, facebook.com)

April 28: Date Night North Loop: Held on the last Thursday of every month, Date Night shows all the North Loop has to offer, whether it’s an impressive list of participating stores or a special event. This month, Martin Patrick 3 will host Behind the Brands: Denim for Days. Meet the faces behind some of MP3’s denim brands and maybe even find the right pair for you. (5-8 p.m., North Loop, Minneapolis, facebook.com)

April 28: Fashion Revolution Week: Maker’s Crawl: Ever wonder where your clothes are from and who makes them? Conscious Collective believes you should know. The event serves to remember those lost at the Rana Plaza in 2013 and to challenge fashion makers and consumers to value the environment, clothing quality, and people when creating fashion creations and purchases. The Maker’s Crawl, a new addition to the event’s second year, will celebrate locally made and ethically sourced apparel in the Twin Cities. (6-8:30 p.m., 2500 University Ave., Minneapolis, facebook.com)

April 28-May 1: Lily and Violet Spring Celebration: This all-weekend event showcases new spring inventory with fun activities mixed in. On Thursday, sip Prosecco and snack while you shop, or get a massage; Friday, score a brow consultation; Saturday, shop the warehouse sale; Sunday, browse the new spring arrivals. Sales and contests will run all weekend and 10 percent of all proceeds will go to the Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery. (3414 W. 44th St., Minneapolis, lilyandviolet.com)

April 29: Pumpz Presents: Trask Trunk Show: Pumpz’s mission to “identify and provide the highest quality of the most current designs, combined with competitive prices and personalized service” has led them to stock Trask, an ethically driven brand striving to innovate timeless pieces. Preview the Trask Spring 2016 Collection at Pumpz in the Galleria. (10 a.m.-7 p.m., 3335 Galleria, Edina, facebook.com)

April 29-30: Spring Business Crawl at 44th Street and Beard Avenue: This event serves to showcase local businesses in the Linden Hills area. Get a stamp from Victory, Lily & Violet, the Linden Tree, and Brown & Greene Floral for the chance to win a gift certificate from each store or $100 to Trattoria Tosca. Along with the giveaways, many stores will have additional activities. Eyebobs is hosting a trunk show on Saturday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., and Lily & Violet is planning an entire weekend of fun to go alongside new spring inventory. (44th St. and Beard Ave., Minneapolis, shopvictory.com,  lilyandviolet.com, thelindentreeshop.com, bgfloral.net, eyebobs.com)

April 29-30: Karin Jacobson Trunk Show: Minneapolis jewelry artist has added two new collections to her impressive breadth of design: A bridal line with ethically sourced diamonds and Moissanite (a diamond alternative), and a sculptural line made with oxidized silver. Meet Jacobson and view her entire current collection along with these two new arrivals. (The Grand Hand Gallery, 619 Grand Ave., St. Paul, thegrandhand.com)

April 29-30: Zero + Maria Cornejo Trunk Show: A focus on luxury and timelessness makes this brand’s seemingly simple garments pieces of art. Innovative cuts and angles allow the clothes to lay correctly on every body. Guests can purchase items and get an exclusive look at the fall/winter 2016 collection. The clothing will be available at two Grethen House locations. (4930 France Ave. S., Edina; 212 Third Ave. N, Minneapolis; 318 E. Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis, grethenhouse.com)

April 29-May 1: AlwaysMod One Year Anniversary Celebration + Open House: Refreshments, giveaways, and a 20-50 percent off storewide sale will commence AlwaysMod’s second year in its new space. Pick up favorites from brands like iittala, Marimekko, Alessi, and more. Try something new with Pohjolan Helmi Jewelry, which features handcrafted and timeless pieces. (905 Decatur Ave. N., Golden Valley, alwaysmod.com)

May 1: Spring Cleaning Sale at Sisyphus Brewing: It’s out with the old and in with the new. Local makers are selling work and some supplies at discounted prices all afternoon. Capitalize on the savings (and perhaps snack on a donut) to score new items from any of the fifteen participating brands. (12-5 p.m., 712 W. Ontario Ave #100, Minneapolis, facebook.com)

May 1: Mille Makers Market: Mother’s Day is around the corner, and Mille is bringing together some of the Twin Cities’ finest makers so you can surprise your mom with a thoughtful, local gift. Featured products include ceramics, kitchenware, paper goods, and more, from makers including MAD-Martha McQuade, Dan Clark, Jess Hirsch, Ginny Sims of Powderhorn Kitchen, Erin Lynn Smith, and more. (Mille, 12-5 p.m., 316 W. 48th St., Minneapolis, fashionweekmn.com)

May 1: Outdoor Monster Market: Sunday will be a day of firsts: the first outdoor market of 2016, the first Minneapolis Craft market in St. Paul, and perhaps the first time sun touches our skin after winter. Lake Monster Brewing’s open outdoor space is the perfect setting to grab a beer and discover work by local artists and makers. (12-6 p.m., 550 Vandalia St., St. Paul, facebook.com)
