Outdoor market season has begun. Oh happy day! I'll be at Terrain's Dig Into Spring Festival for the Clover Market Pop Up this Saturday. It's the first of my Spring markets and what a great one to begin with. I'll be set up with 21 of my Clover Market maker friends – plus, there will be food, an outdoor bar, crafts, & children's activities too. Terrain is a beautiful home & garden shop/cafe located in Glen Mills, PA. If you're in the area, please come for a visit. I'll have new things that aren't yet listed in my online shop...

The following weekend, I'll be at Clover Market in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania with my 10x10 tent filled with everything that I sell in my online shops, plus lots more.

Visit my Events page for more info on my September markets and to see where I'll be October through December. I'm doing a couple of new markets this season, and I'll also be adding a couple more to my calendar in the coming weeks.

Hope to meet you this Fall!

My first market of 2016 is Clover Market this Sunday in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. 

I really love selling at markets. During non-market months, I feel a bit sad without that date to look forward to. A large part of my market joy comes from meeting customers and other makers. Four years ago, when I signed on to do my first holiday Waldorf fair, I would have never guessed that my introverted, loner personality would enjoy the long days of putting myself and my creations on display and interacting with so many people. But I do enjoy the interaction, and at the end of a show I'm absolutely exhausted in the best way possible. 

There's something very gratifying in every step of the market process. The set-up, which is physical and can be quite demanding, makes me appreciate my health and my body for all that I'm able to accomplish. Arranging and displaying my work is an extension of the creative process. Creating a booth is like creating a traveling shop. The opportunity to build a stage for your products on which they feel at home, is a learning experience that I can draw on later when I'm photographing products for online sales. Selling at markets also allows me to offer things that I might not sell online. I can make a small batch of seasonal goods – knitted wool cuffs in winter, or naturally dyed jersey cuffs in spring. Selling online requires a lot of steps in order to get your product in front of people – making, packaging, photographing, writing descriptions and titles, calculating shipping weights, and then actually listing the item. The comparative quickness of making something and immediately offering it to customers, can be sheer creative freedom. 

So now that market season has begun, my heart is happy. Hope you'll visit me at an upcoming show
