A Crafty Weekend

Lots of crafting was done this weekend, but for today, I just want to write a little post about how the Shoreline Holiday Craft Market went.

It was a long day – getting up at 6, to be ready to leave by 7, to get to the Spartan Rec Center in Shoreline by 7:30 to start setting up. My lovely booth-partner Kimi and I carpooled, and when we arrived we were thoroughly impressed with the number of vendors that this craft market was hosting, and lots of quality fun stuff! (There was definitely some quirky, odd, and kitschy stuff as well, but all in the festive spirit)

So Jadeflower and Enoki Designs teamed up for the day, and we had a fun time manning our table and periodically wandering around to other people’s booths.

The market got quite a bit of foot traffic, so we were certainly pleased with that. It’s so much harder to be a vendor at an event when no one shows up! Kimi’s earrings got lots of attention, as did my ceramic brooches.

However, though lots of people admired our Christmas ornaments (Kimi made some too), no one bought a single one! We thought the ornaments would be the big seller! Oh well, live and learn. 🙂

(By the way, the wine glass was to demonstrate the alphabet charms – I wasn’t drinking on the job, haha)

It’s inspiring to see all these other people who want to share their art with others (and, I suppose, hopefully make some money). Kimi and I really enjoy teaming up for these kinds of events – we are tentatively planning a 1st-Thursday Pioneer Square art walk appearance in the next few months. I’ll be sure to announce the details once we figure it out!

Lots of events coming up this weekend! I’m going to be one busy bee 🙂

First off, the Shoreline Holiday Crafts Market is on Saturday, and it’s sure to be a great time.

I can’t wait to see what other folks are selling, and of course, I hope people like what I have to offer! (Really, Kimi’s and my booth is going to be fantastic!) And there’s nothing like a craft fair to get you in the holiday spirit, plus they’ll have hourly door prizes. So please, if you’re in the Shoreline, north Seattle area, come check this out!

The other big event that I’m attending is the PHS Choir To Russia with Love concert at the Puyallup High School auditorium. As I mentioned in this post, the choir is travelling to Russia over spring break, and they need all the support they can get. The concert is guaranteed to be very entertaining, and you’ll be helping them in their travel goal by attending. Give these kids an experience of a lifetime! For all the details on the concert, check out my other post!

On a more personal note, my wonderful grandparents are flying out from Wisconsin this weekend and will celebrate Thanksgiving with the West Coasters. We’re so excited to have them visit! I’m really looking forward to spending time with them next week, because really, every moment is precious.

I’ll be signing off for the week to gear up for this weekend. Wish me luck, and I’ll be sure to have lots of pictures from the weekend to share on Monday!
