finding time to forage.

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…
crushedjadeFinding that I’m drawn to green lately.  This vintage crushed jade locket is a perfect hiding place for a ‘joey’ vintage image.

huntingcupsCannot wait to fill these vintage hunting trophies with greens and use these as props in my booth.

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.

welcome, spring.

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.

i’m so looking forward to ‘winter market’ at the 23rd street armory.  clover market always does it right with an immaculately curated group of sellers and makers, but this time there’s food trucks and a selection of diy workshops. you’ll want to buy tickets ahead of time for an earlybird vip entrance (9am) complete with swag bag & coupons (tickets here) or 2 for 1 advance ticketing (tickets here).  otherwise, you can pay for admission at the door. this you won’t want to miss.

– had a trunk show at The Little Apple in Manayunk, PA.

– took on a new retailer, oWowCow Creamery in Wrightstown, PA.

– participated in the Outdoor Craft Store in Swarthmore, PA.

– stocked up joey retailers: Shake the TreeDeconstructed Living, Circa Dee and  Hens Teeth Rare Gifts.

This weekend I’ll be at the first annual Woodbury Fall Arts Fest in where else? Woodbury, NJ.

Look at this layout!  I’ll be in Booth #220 on Railroad Avenue between Wallace and Hopkins) amongst dozens of artisan vendors, musicians, craft beer gardens and so much more.  I’m intrigued by what offerings lie in ‘The Art of Spice’ tent.

  Hope to see you this Saturday in Woodbury between 11 – 6.
