Spring! How I've missed you...

What a gorgeous day. The sun is shining, my windows are open to enjoy the mid-60° weather, kitties are sitting on the screened-in back porch, and my coffee mug is warming my hand. Life is good!

I participated in a bazaar/flea-market type thing last Sunday, which was my first foray into setting up a booth for my sewn-goods. Pretty good crowd, but they were primarily there to snap up all the good deals on used clothing, jewelry and shoes. When comparing a $3 top to a $45 handmade handbag, my stuff probably seemed pretty expensive....

However, it was great exposure, good practice for my upcoming craft fairs and a damn fun time with my dear friends, Brandy, Amber(s) and Kikii. And thanks ever so much to Katie @ Savvy Salon, who hosted the event and was ever helpful, sweet and accommodating!

Here are some pictures of my booth:

Well, time to clean up my sewing studio after the tornado of an upcoming craft fair swept through it and make the pillow that represents my first sale in the CODhandmade Etsy shop! Isn't it super-cute?

Have a great day!

  3. Hi Candice and Tia! Thanks for taking a look-see and leaving some comments. Love the interaction, so this isn't such a solitary venture :)

    Candice, we met briefly at one of the Irvington Farmer's Markets. I love your work as Cordial Kitten! I'm hoping to have a booth of my own this year, so maybe we'll see each other again there. I'm checking out Indy Craft Mafia right now--thanks for the tip.
