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!

hey all! if this past weekend was any indication, spring is quickly on its way to being sprung! and along with the beautiful weather, flowers, outdoor weddings, and hoards of dogs being walked outside comes spring craft shows! as usual, i have a pretty full schedule. if you live in the Philadelphia area or NYC, please come out and check out all of the handmade goodies us vendors have been working on all winter 🙂
kicking off my craft season and The Clover Market spring season, I will be returning to the popular show in Ardmore, PA on Sunday, April 14th! the first date listed will be the only one I’m participating in, but if you’re free any of the above dates you need to check out this show. not only is it packed with a rotating cast of talented artists, but there are unique booths of vintage and antiques to peruse as well. here’s a list of the vendors, broken down by each month. to get a better visual idea of what will be there, check out this comprehensive pin board. also, tune in to my blog tomorrow for a clover market themed etsy treasury tuesday post 🙂
the following Saturday, April 20th I’m headed to West Philly to return to the local favorite Go West Craft Fest at the beautiful Woodlands Cemetery. this show features a wide range of handmade items and is really family friendly, with a small local acrobatic group performing throughout the day and local snack and ice cream vendors. it runs from 11-5pm and is easily accessible via public transportation- steps away from a trolley station and short walk from 30th Street Station. here’s a list of the vendors and here’s a Go West! themed pin board to get a visual of who all will be there 🙂
the weekend after that, I’m taking a break to celebrate my birthday with friends since I was away for the actual date in March. however, if you’re looking for a fun activity to fill up your Saturday, check out Crafty Balboa in South Philadelphia, one of my favorite craft shows that runs in conjunction with East Passyunk’s Flavors of the Avenue event.
I’m kicking off the month of May in New York City with the annual BUST Magazine Spring Craftacular on Saturday, May 4th. It’s been over a year since I’ve done a show with BUST and I’m pretty excited to come back, see some new faces, and shop! This outdoor show is at the Pearl Street Plaza on the DUMBO, Brooklyn waterfront- right near the Brooklyn Bridge! The vendor list isn’t up at this time, but keep an eye on my twitter and I’ll post the link. The show is one day and runs from 11-6pm.
I’ll be ending the spring season with a bang at the biggest Philadelphia show of the year- Art Star Craft Bazaar at Penn’s Landing on May 11th and May 12th. This two day event coincides with Mother’s Day weekend- Saturday is a great day to shop for your momma and Sunday is a great day to shop with your momma 🙂 This show is huge and brings vendors from near and far- here’s a comprehensive vendor list with links and photos. the first 150 people to arrive each day will get a tote bag full of vendor goodies. also, a little birdie told me that the Art Star ladies will be holding a Craft Bazaar giveaway on social media sometime in the near future- be sure to check them out on twitter at @artstarphilly and instagram also @artstarphilly
That’s all for now, folks! I’m looking at a couple of potential shows in June, but will be taking a craft show break for the majority of the summer. Hope to see you sometime this spring!
Hey all! Some exciting news- this upcoming First Friday, November 2, 2012 I will be a participating artist at Philadelphia’s Practice Gallery’s The Cat Exhibition. This is the piece I will have for display and sale! It’s an original watercolor and ink illustration and I’m pretty proud of it 🙂
Here’s some more info about the show, lifted from Practice Gallery’s facebook page:
Practice invites you to buy a cat.
Artworks in the guise of cats will cover the walls of Practice this November and the public is invited to view and buy them. The Cat Exhibition is a fundraiser, the sale of each work will be put back into Practice, directly recycled as the resources to continue putting on exhibitions. No cat will be priced over $200 and some may be as affordable as $20.
Artworks will be sold directly off the walls and disappear forever into someone’s private collection. Persons wishing to purchase a cat should get to Practice early in order to assure the procurement of their top choice. Practice only accepts payment in the form of cash. Over 70 artists have agreed to support Practice with a cat.
