Or at least not on our Arts Market, and if you live in New England, you know this was a bit of a miracle. I did another show last Saturday, and had a wonderful time as usual. I only tweaked my display a little, but here is a picture anyway...
I had a wonderful spot right up front in the center aisle, so it was easy for folks to move around.
I have to talk up a couple of local NH sellers that do amazing work. First, my fellow Etsy seller, Erica Walker; I love her silver jewelry. She has some beautiful earrings that totally appeal to me because they are so versatile. And you must check out her new Mod Ring design. Too cool for the tragically hip.
The second is Becky Oh! Handbags. I first stumbled across Becky from Trunkt shortly after I was accepted. Her aesthetic is so similar to mine, and we could’ve talked fabric all afternoon had we not had to man our booths. I ended up buying my own Becky Oh! Handbag, and I couldn’t be more pleased. She makes her own patterns, and her color choices are sublime. The workmanship is topnotch, and I can’t wait to bring my own little purse out on a layover. Thanks Becky!
The last New Hampshire gal that I want to mention is Patty from L&B Accessories. If you want a beautifully made wallet (or handbag for that matter), Patty is your girl. Her stitching is perfect (trust me, I looked on my own wallet), and she is now doing her own embroidery designs, so they are unique. We miss Patty at the Market, but she has been busy in her Etsy shop, so that’s a good thing!
In other craft show notes, I was just accepted to the SOWA Market in Boston, and couldn't be more excited. I have no idea which Sundays I might go just yet, but I'll keep you posted.
Sad news, it appears as though a bear or raccoon has disturbed our poor mother Robin's nest, and the eggs are gone. I'm happy to have my truck back, but sad that we couldn't hear those little baby birds waiting for their mother to return with some food. I'm hoping she has enough time to make a new nest in a safer spot, and lay a new clutch of eggs. We haven't broken the news to our daughter, but she has been pretty good about these sorts of things in the past. We do live in the woods after all, and these things happen.
