spring stitch market applications open!



did you know that i run a handmade market?  i, along with my friend emily, have run the stitch market for about 6 years now, twice a year.

we are now accepting applications for our spring market: april 24th, 25th, and 26th!

we are really happy with the applications that have been rolling in, but we’d love a bigger selection!

if you make modern handmade items, create unique housewares, or even sell vintage finds – we want you!  and if you don’t, surely you know someone who does – send them our way!  we love our long time vendors, but are always looking for fresh goods to share with our loyal customers!



linking up my weekly phone pics with jeannett.  i’m thepleatedpoppy on instagram if you want to follow along!


i snagged this pic with gracie while we were doing family olympics the day after thanksgiving – i love my girl!  i’ll share more details soon on the olympics…


one of the many benefits of not taking your Christmas lights down:  not having to put them up and simply flipping a switch!


some days at home are sooooo looooong.  especially when 2 o’clock hits, right?!  what is it that between 2 and 5 feels like about 7 hours long?


i took down all the celebratory grand opening decorates at fred & betty’s and….


channeled my inner buddy the elf and created a winter wonderland!  the picture doesn’t really do it justice, but its super fun!


sometimes i find my kids doing school in the weirdest positions.  i couldn’t walk again if i sat  like that!


my pretty model helped me with showing the scale of the bitty button earrings.  i will pay her in bitty button earrings ;)


this was just some of what i had to pack up for the stitch market!  the car was literally packed to the ceiling!


of all my products i’ve made, that little monkey in the middle is the cutest!


the market opened today!!!  it was a fun night, but man!  so chilly!


my sweet husband stopped by the market after a road trip and helped to fix up my booth for me!


we have some really amazing vendors!  i will share more, but for now, here are a few:  molly of cookie & curly makes these pretty rings that sell like crazy!


lo boheme is a new vendor and sells the most beautiful ties!


kasey sews (no online shop!) makes the sweetest little mouse sets!


i am a sucker for saylor rose’s jewelry, but really?  a glittered deer with legwarmers and a necklace?  so fun!


and we borrowed santa from olalabella’s booth because he just needed to be our greeter.
