Hello friends, over the weekend I was over at Northville for my first summer event with the Little Shoppe Market. I was all excited as its been awhile since I was at an event. Then the weather decided to be capricious. Friday, our first day was totally rained out. We were fortunate to be inside as the torrential rains were impressive. I’m happy to report that the next days were much better.
Honestly, it wasn’t quite what I expected though to be fair, I’d never done an event in the US before. Up until now, I’d been dealing with a mostly French crowd, notwithstanding a few foreigners here and there. The crowd was certainly different from what I’m used to and I have to adjust to this if I’m going to continue doing shows.
That said, what I found truly nice was the spirit of camaraderie that was present among those in the fair. Its not easy to be out there in front of people with your work. Like it or not, these pieces represent something of yourself and it can be nerve wracking to be in front of a public. Everything is less difficult when you’re with fun and easygoing people in a show. And I can’t tell you how nice it was to find here, as in France, kind and encouraging people. Special thanks to Annie of MiniMocs and Elaine of Creative Notions Limited!
Now, I want to share with you some pictures I took during the show…
These beautiful Petites Merveilles earrings found themselves a lovely new owner.
Gorgeous handmade wreaths and decorations from Detroit Reincarnated. This would definitely brighten up your wall if you had it hanging up!
Cute handmade muffs for your booties from Mitten Made. Don’t you think this is a clever way of updating your wardrobe?
And I couldn’t resist taking a picture of this piece..which is just a fantabulous glass carousel made by Keltic Fyre and I loved it. Don’t you think its aptly called Fantastic Carousel of Dreams?
Here’s to the next big event coming up!! Keep reading this space for more details!
Hello friends, today I wanted to share some exciting news. We’ve got events lined up for the summer and the first one starts this weekend!
As I don’t have a brick and mortar store, craft fairs are a great opportunity for me to meet lots of lovely people. I like the freedom and independence that working from home gives me but sometimes it gets pretty lonesome just sitting in front of my computer. Its refreshing to meet and chat with people. I love to tell stories about my beads and I love it even more when people share their own bead stories.
So I’m excited to tell you that I will be at Northville Square, Northville Michigan this weekend the 28th (10-7pm),29th(10-8pm) and 30th(12-4pm) of June and again on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of August (but more on that later).
Here is a small sampling of the bijoux I will be bringing…
