I am so excited to say that I have officially confirmed my spot in my first vintage and handmade sale. Since I have started working at Cracker Jax I have had the pleasure of getting to know Anne Marie of Nada Farm. She has a barn sale twice a year and my first visit was in the spring. It was a magical place. The minute you step on the farm you feel right at home. There are animals to coo at and wonderful people with booths styled so well you would think you were in a rustic boutique.
I have been wanting to do Art and Craft Fairs with my own work for some time now but I was always so intimidated to step out on my own and just do it. The magic of Nada Farm put me at ease and all intimidation was swept away.
I have been working hard in my studio gluing glitter here and applying paint there. As I fall asleep I think of my booth and how I will style it. Today I got my bags and tissue paper in the mail and soon I should get a fresh supply of business cards. I am looking forward to the experience and know I can only learn wonderful things and grow just like the vegetables in the garden.
If you live in the area you should definitely check it out. The dates are Oct. 19 and 20th. It's such a sweet event and the crisp autumn air will surely make it cozier and sweeter.
Please check out Anne Marie's blog. It's like a mug of tea on a breezy day. Her family is fabulous and her day to day is so very dreamy.
And here's a little glimpse of the things going on in my studio. Forgive the lighting/phone camera quality. My basement studio is giving me some lighting issues and while still only half unpacked here I can't find my camera!
