Ready, Set, Summer! at Grand Bazaar

IMG_0614

I’ll be selling at Ready, Set, Summer! at the Grand Bazaar on Sunday, May 21, from 10AM-5:30PM. Grand Bazaar is a market that’s been around awhile, right near the Museum of Natural History on the Upper West Side, but they have recently pivoted to offering more curated handmade wares. They have teamed up with the New York Handmade Collective (formerly the Etsy New York Team) and our group’s vendors will be featured in a special section of Grand Bazaar. Hope to see you there!

Holiday Handmade Cavalcade

hhc16_postcard_final_front

I am pleased to announce that I will be selling again at Etsy NY Team‘s Holiday Handmade Cavalcade! The market will be at Chelsea Market, and this time for an entire week. I however will be only selling on the weekend, on Dec 10-11.

One other big change this year is that we are encouraging people to RSVP at Eventbrite for free admission. In past years we have been so crowded that we had to turn people away at the door because we were violating the fire code! So this year if you RSVP you get in free, and if it’s crowded when you show up it’s a $2 fee. The idea is that we want to ensure that the people who are really interested in shopping the market are able to do so.

So RSVP and hope to see you Dec 10-11 at Chelsea Market!

Shop Re-opened!

I am now the proud mother of two 🙂 Baby number two is a healthy girl, growing rapidly. I’m finally getting the hang of managing two young children, so I am ending my maternity break and adding the business back into the equation. In addition to tweaking both this site and adapting to the changes that Etsy made during my break, I am working on expanding my product lines in preparation for the holidays.  Keep an eye on instagram for more updates!

unnamed

I will be selling this upcoming Sunday, 2/7, at the Greenpointers Valentine’s Market from 1-7PM at Greenpoint Loft. In addition to shopping handmade gifts for your sweetie, there will be lots of great food, henna, a photo booth, face painting, massages, tarot readings and a DJ.

This will be the last market I will be doing until the holidays roll back around, since I will be starting maternity leave in March!

I haven’t had time to sit down and photograph things properly, but these are a preview of what I’ll have available. Above is geometric line art in a chevron pattern.

This one I’m pretty sure will be a hit. Pretty Mother’s Day cards available with rose, yellow or orange flowers. Once I get these photographed nicely I will list them in the shop, but that may be awhile so your best shot is to come to the show this Saturday 🙂

DIY Embroidered Card Kits

I was very sad to discover that my notebook supplier discontinued my standard notebook, which I used in my DIY kits and completed embroideries. Their replacement had a cover that was totally unsuitable for embroidery, so I had to go looking for an alternative so I could restock my popular DIY kits.

I still haven’t found the perfect replacement, but I have found a great way to continue to offer DIY kits: embroidered cards!

Each kit comes with a pre-punched card, an envelope, embroidery floss, an embroidery needle, and detailed instructions to create each card.

There are three designs available right now: dual circles (which can be used to create a variety of designs), a red heart, and a “Mom” script typography –listed early enough that you can finish the card in time for Mother’s Day! You can find all three available here.
