Holiday Craft Shows!

I am excited to share that I will be in 2 upcoming holiday craft shows in the local Phoenix area!

First up on December 5th is the 9th annual Crafeteria, hosted by Frances Vintage boutique.
Last year was my first year participating and I am thrilled to be selected again for this year's event!  I know it will be a fantastic night for all!

Second is the Holiday Pop-up Market hosted by Botanica at the Farm at South Mountain on December 13th.
This is the first year for the event, and it will take place in the beautiful rustic environment of the Farm.  Really looking forward to this!

If you're in the Phoenix area, stop by and say hello!

Hissyfits Hullabaloo

My table!
The Hissyfits Hullabaloo fall 2014 craft show was held last Sunday, November 2nd.  Hissyfits is a kids clothing resale shop in Phoenix that hosts a craft show twice a year, in spring and fall.  This is my first time participating, and the turnout was awesome and I had a great time!  I got a bit sun burnt (thank god for sunscreen) being out in the sun for 5 hours, but it was worth it. For this show, I took mostly greeting cards, some pendants and pins, and some 5x7 and 8x10 prints.  The greeting cards were the best sellers, especially the Christmas cards with hedgehogs, which completely sold out! (Note to self: MORE hedgehogs) They sure seem to be popular!

I managed to walk around and browse when things slowed down toward the end of the day.

There were lots of great vendors selling jewelry, kids' clothing, toys, etc., but my two favorites were Pockets with Posies and Sighfoo/Starving Artist Bazaar.

An owl I bought from them!
Pockets with Posies is run by Stephanie Garcia, and everything she sells is impossibly cute!  I bought a plush owl from her to add to my collection.

Both Sighfoo! and Starving Artist Bazaar are run by Jennifer Syfu, whom I remember from last year's Crafeteria.  Sighfoo! features plushies made from recycled wool sweaters and Starving Artist Bazaar is her line of glass jewelry.  The plushies are funny and cute, the jewelry is just beautiful!

As an added bonus, I was included in a write-up by a local blogger, Jennifer Lind Schutsky, on her Hawks and Honey blog.  Check it out here!

A big thank you to Nikki Cox at Hissyfits for putting on the show!  Looking forward to the spring Hullabaloo!
