Taking My Shop on the Road

Last weekend I participated in the With Heart Handmade Market, a new craft fair in my town.
A group of young women hosted the fair, and although the rain put a bit of a damper on its first year, I had a great time meeting some of my favorite local crafters and interacting with lots of new faces who are now sporting my items!

A few pictures from my booth. I tried to get creative with a few antiques and repurposed items.

Printer tray held bias tape earrings and button bobbies.

Fruit basket held rosette pins.

Antique muffin tin held cab earrings.

And an antique loaf pan held stacked hair pins.

Brooches on a cake plate.

Rosette pendant necklaces on an antique tool box.

And, of course, lots of old white plates.

Thank you to everyone who offered such great advice and help!
