the queen bee market

happy monday friends!

so vacation is taking its dutiful toll on me, and i am not getting as much work done as my boss would like for me to.  oh wait – i’m the boss!  anyhoo, relaxing is becoming like second nature to me so coming back to reality this week is not going to be much fun.

but guess what is going to be fun?! i’ll only be in “reality-ville” for a day or so before i head off to…

the queen bee market!

this coming saturday, in downtown san diego (bayfront hilton downtown, 1 park blvd), the queen bee market will be filled with amazing handmade goodies once again!

you have seen my posts on this market before.  i kid you not – it is AMAZING!  (see, i even used all caps for it!)

if you come, prepare to spend some time and wear comfy shoes.  i walked the aisles at least 10 times at each market and find something new and amazing and i-have-to-have-this-right-now each time i make a round!

i’ll be honest, at many markets i’m a bit of a snob/cheap-o and look at things and say, “i could make that”.  but at the queen bee market, i see things i could maybe make, but they make it so much better!  seriously, the group of artists jess and mique jury in are amazing.  i am honored to be a part of this.

what’s that?  oh, you can’t go because you’ll be at blogher.  bummer….. not!  the queen bee market is just a hop skip and not even a jump from the blogher venue!  skip that boring session and come shop!  gather all your girl friends that you meet for the first time or that you have known online forever and let your mind relax from all the SEO talk by perusing the aisles of handmade goodness.

so tell me:  are you coming?  i’ll be at the market all day (minus potty breaks) so please come for a visit!

and if you do come, please bring a can of food or 20 for the food drive jeannett is organizing for the san diego food bank.  and to reward you for your kindness, you’ll get a raffle ticket for each can you bring.  tons of vendors from the market are chipping in some of their items for a big ol’ basket of goodness!

    Oh how I wish I could come. I love those stuffed creations you featured at the last QBM. And heres my suggestion: QBM needs to team up with BlogSugar next year….ya know, so I get a chance to shop and all. If a girl is comin from NY she has to fit everything into one trip:)
    Good luck!

  20. 20

    I so wish I could jump a flight and be there! We have nothing even CLOSE to it around here! Can’t wait to see pics :)

    I ALWAYS want to go. I think I may just load the kids up and make the drive. I just don’t want to be one of those annoying shoppers telling their kids “don’t touch that!”, “where’d you get that? ugh, go put it back!”, or “yes, we DO talk online, but my kids have to pee….nice to meet you even though i can’t even say hi for one minute.” Or am I the only one who freaks out about shopping handmade with small children? :)

    Do you have any idea how excited that I am going to be in San Diego for a wedding this Saturday!?!?!!!!!!!!! I am going to be there with my mom and sis in tow! Yeah!!!! So excited to meet you too!!!!!

  23. 23

    I would give literally anything to come to this one day! Is there a list of these creators pages anywhere?! I saw about 10 things I have to have in this post alone!
