and the show season is beginning again! I realize that I’ve been absolutely horrible at keeping this current over the summer and resolve to be better. many, many events are on the horizon for fall and winter – there are some old favorites and a few new ones that i’m really excited about.
here’s what’s coming up in september:
the one and only clover market kicks it off on september 15th. don’t worry if you can’t make that one- I’ll be at all FOUR of their shows this season. yes, they have added a chestnut hill location in october- yay!
I’m thrilled to be a part of applehead studios open house this year! along with three other artists/friends that I admire, i’ll be exhibiting my work for sale the weekend of september 20th. this is a great relaxed atmosphere and the perfect opportunity to get your holiday shopping started along with a drink and some conversation.
to get the full schedule of shows and to stay up to date on all things joey- make sure you’ve subscribed to my newsletter. I will be sending one out in the next week. I promise no spam or sharing of your email- I only send it out four to five times a year.
hope to see you soon…
spring has gone and with it, the shows too… at least for a while. i’m using this ‘downtime’ to restock my much neglected etsy shop and have a sale! now through friday, july 5th, i’m offering 15% off your purchase when you use the code ‘FOURTH’ on checkout. enjoy!
I’ve had a little bit of a break in between shows to regroup and restock. It’s been great to have some time to relax and do things other than jewelry making, but alas, June is lurking around the corner and with it comes a whole new slew of shows. As always, I’ve been on the hunt for vintage goodies to inspire and incorporate into my designs. It’s been particularly bountiful lately, I can’t wait to dig in.
Vintage wooden ‘snaps’ (missing the p!) hinged scrapbook with treasures inside. The colorized photobooth photo was a prized discovery.
Assorted vintage components purchased separately that ‘fell’ together quite nicely…
Finding that I’m drawn to green lately. This vintage crushed jade locket is a perfect hiding place for a ‘joey’ vintage image.
Hope to see you at a show soon! Check out my ‘Events’ page up at the top of this page to find one near you. Next up is Art for the Cash Poor at the Crane Arts Building in Philly.
I’ll be one of the 100 vendors this weekend at Penn’s Landing in Philly this weekend for the awesomeness that is the Art Star Craft Bazaar. This year marks their 10th anniversary- this will be my second year participating in this unique and wonderful event. Here’s how you get there!
Yes, it’s Mother’s Day too, so bring the whole family for music, food, crafts and crafty goodness. Check out the amazing vendors here. Hope to see you… now, back to work!
come out for some crafty goodness this saturday, april 27th in south philly. peruse the wares of 45 amazing vendors and discover the flavors of the avenue…. hope to see you!
So much resining to do to make up for lost time while I had the flu! It’s all the more difficult being stuck in the basement with a mask on my face when the weather is as beautiful as it is today. Oh well, it must be done- Clover Market is in one week (from tomorrow, officially) and there’s much to do! These joeys will become fun little stud earrings when I’m done with them.
Speaking of Clover, did you know there’s a cool giveaway going on right now?! Check out the rules and how to enter here to win a free super soft Clover T-shirt and market tote bag. Also, you get to pick your favorite vendor to attend one of the market’s for FREE (hint, hint)! Make sure you’ve shared and posted your comment – good luck!
Hope I see you on April 14th…
Yes, it’s officially spring but we’re still getting four inches of snow today in bucks county, pa. In a way, it’s working for me because there’s no sunny, spring-like weather distractions. March has been tough because the flu brought me down a few weeks ago, so there’s lots of catching up to do in order to be ready for the deluge of spring shows that begin mid-april.
Clover Market with kick off the season on april 14th in ardmore, pa. I can hardly wait, it’s always an amazing event and there’s a great new slew of artists and vendors as well as old favorites retuning for the season. Check out the pinterest board of the spring sellers here.
If you’ve not already subscribed to be on my mailing list, make sure you do so! i’ll be sending out my newsletter in early april with my complete spring schedule. Still waiting to hear from a few shows, but SO many great ones already booked!
Hope to see you soon…
I’m so excited to be participating in Clover Market‘s first wintry offering – ‘Winter Market’ at the 23rd street Armory in Philly. Yes, it’s tomorrow! Along with Clover’s usual group of fantastically curated sellers and makers there’s also food trucks and a selection of diy workshops.
