This year has been a whirlwind- I can’t believe the holidays are just a few weeks away! exit343design took a bit of a backseat over the summer while I tended to things in my personal life (eight weddings, moving, etc), worked on a couple of time consuming freelance projects for friends (wedding invitations!), and worked on adjusting to the 9-5 life (first time ever in my life!) . However, I’m BACK. And I’m kicking off my art show season THIS SUNDAY by returning to the the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market at the Historic Roebling Machine Shop (675 South Clinton Avenue) from 10-5pm. Here’s the official poster with all of the details:
The weekend before Thanksgiving, Yardsale Press and I are headed up to Kingston, New York to be first time vendors at the Hudson Valley Hullabaloo, an event organized in part by our friends at Wishbone Letterpress. I’m not going to lie- I’m pretty pumped to be a part of this show! As makers themselves, the organizers have really come up with an excellent event for all ages. In addition to 50+ artists and craftspeople, there will be a photobooth, a Tintype photos (!!!), a DIY gift-wrap station for dressing up your purchases, plus booze + snacks from local vendors. Hootie hoo! We’ll be there both days (Saturday, November 22nd + Sunday, November 23rd) at the Andy Murphy Midtown Neighborhood Center in Kingston, New York. The event runs from 10-5 on Saturday and 11-5 on Sunday. Here’s the official poster with all of the info:
As of right now, I’ll have two weekends off (Thanksgiving and the following weekend) and then it’s back-to-back shows in Philadelphia. The weekend kicks off on Saturday, December 13th as a returning vendor to Crafty Balboa in South Philly! It’s been a while since I’ve been back and I’m pretty pumped to be a part of such a talented group of vendors! The show is at the SS Neumann Goretti High School at 1736 South Tenth Street in South Philadelphia from 11-5pm. The first 50 customers get a free tote bag filled with goodies and handmade swag!
The next day, Sunday December 14th, I’m headed across town to vend at the ever-popular R5 Punk Rock Flea Market. It’s held twice a year at the THE PUNK ROCK FLEA MARKET-DOME at 461 N. 9th St. in Philly. It’s held the whole weekend, but with different vendors each day. Come see me on Sunday from 10-5pm!
My final show of the season is a particularly exciting one this year- I’ll be running my own three-day pop-up shop at the Voorhees Town Center in Voorhees, New Jersey! It’s called ‘Shop Up Pop Up’ and it’s a unique event that’s running from November 14th up until the weekend before Christmas (the weekend I’ll be there!). I’ll be setting up shop with all my standard exit343design gift-able goods, but since the space will allow it, I’ll be bringing along some extra special products that don’t normally make the rounds with me! In addition to my work, I’ll be splitting the space with The Chocolate Clinic, a vendor who markets themselves as a ‘chocolate curator’- I mean come on, I’m sold already haha.
So PLEASE come see me at the Voorhees Town Center at 2120 Voorhees Town Center in Voorhees Township, NJ. I’ll be there for three days holding down the fort on:
Friday, December 19th from 6-9pm
Saturday, December 20th from 3-9pm
Sunday, December 21st from 12-6pm

Hello friends and followers! I’ve been M.I.A for quite a while now, but for good reason- I’ve been hitting the studio hard getting ready for the upcoming holiday shopping season! (see the side bar on the right for my schedule this season) Additionally, an exciting last-minute opportunity came my way this month and I decided to go ahead and seize it; I’m so pleased to announce that exit343design now has a permanent brick + mortar presence in the Serendipity Shops of Avalon in Avalon, New Jersey! This space differs from other retailers I work with in that this is actually my own little space that I manage and maintain on my own. Last night, I trekked down to install just in time for their big Black Friday sales event that’s coming up quickly. The store is open 10-5 until January, weekends from January-March, and 10-10pm every day during the spring/summer season. So please, if you’re in the area, stop in and see what’s happening! A big thank you to Nicole and Barbara for this wonderful opportunity!
Here’s my space! I have fresh stock of 6 onesie designs, a new large beach tote, 6 tees, and a variety of art prints and stationery!
Check it out- a whole row of Christmas cards, including three new styles coming to the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market with me this weekend!
Sunday stressed-out Stephanie with no makeup- so glad to have gotten this all together in such a short amount of time!

Hello all! 2014 has been quite a whirlwind for me so far- I apologize for being M.I.A! In February, I started in a new position at my day job and it’s been overwhelmingly busy. The learning curve is slowly beginning to fade and I’m getting used to my new schedule, while wrapping up some fun custom projects I’ve been working on. I still have posts in the works about the end of my holiday season in 2013- I took so many photos of great artwork, I have to share them! Better late than never has basically become my life mantra at this point. Two weeks ago I ventured to Austin, Texas to vend at the first ever Renegade Craft Fair: SXSW Edition and it was a blast! Can’t wait to post about that trip as well . . .
Anyhow, my official spring season is kicking off this weekend in Trenton, New Jersey at the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market. It’s my first time at this event- come out and say hello this Sunday, March 30th from 10am-5pm! There should be all kinds of goodies from NJ and PA alike.
The following weekend, I’ll be trekking down to Richmond, Virginia to once again be a vendor at Spring Bada-Bing! It’s been a while and I’m excited to be back 🙂 Check out the vendor list righttttttt HERE.
During the spring season of the Clover Market, I’ll be splitting a booth at two dates with Yardsale Press. My first appearance will be on opening day, Sunday, April 13th, in Chestnut Hill. I’ll also be returning to Chestnut Hill for the June 8th date as well. Sorry, Ardmore! Too many spring time weddings on my schedule to make it to the other dates!
On Saturday, May 3rd I’m headed back to The Woodlands in West Philly to vend at Go West! Craft Fest. It’s been a year since I’ve vended at this popular event by VIX Emporium- come out and say hello!
. . . and finally, to round out the spring season, I’ll be a returning vendor at Philadelphia’s popular Art Star Craft Bazaar at Penn’s Landing. As always, it’s on Mother’s Day Weekend (May 10th and 11th) from 11-6pm both Saturday and Sunday. ASCB is a huge event and certainly one not to be missed!
friends + followers! tonight I will begin the long trek to Austin, Texas to be a first time vendor at Renegade Craft Fair’s SXSW extravaganza! come out to see me and my friend Bryan of Yardsale Press hawk our screen-printed wares to the good people of Austin and beyond. we will be set up at The Palmer Events Center from noon to 8pm on Thursday, Friday, AND Saturday- March 13 + 14 + 15th!
