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

The weekend after I returned from Tennessee, I was a returning vendor at the South Philadelphia staple, Crafty Balboa. The weather started out kind of yucky, but both my helper Katy and I came prepared with our jackets.

After the show, a bunch of us headed down East Passyunk for some grub. yay friends!

Two weeks later, I was a first time vendor at Ardmore’s Clover Market– I’ve been a customer at the event twice before, so it was fun to be on the other side. My booth was nestled in a back parking lot area, around the corner from the food vendors . . .

 . . . and directly across from the New Hope Fountain Soda truck- how cool are those taps built in to the side of their sprinter truck?

As usual, there was a great variety of vintage goodies- i particularly enjoyed this display:

Another great item I was thisclose to bringing home with me were these social media pillows by The Pillow Works:

I’m excited to announce that I will be participating again with The Clover Market in the fall. I will be vending at both the October and November shows- you can see the details in the upper right hand column of my page. So pumped!
