One of my first stops was to visit my friend Jen, who in addition to being a full-time high school English teacher, mother of two boys under three, writer of two blogs, and owner of an Etsy store called Babee Crafts, finds time to represent her hand-crafted baby items at markets, shows, and bazaars!
Some of the vendors included:
--antiques and vintage items for the home--
--purses and other fabric items--
My mother was here for the weekend when I visited the market. That made my browsing even more fun, because we have always been VERY in-synch shoppers. We may not love exactly the same things, but we appreciate what the other enjoys. And we're ALWAYS ready for lunch at the very same time!
Here's my mom looking at some hand-sewn aprons for adults and children. Whenever I see sewn items like this--aprons, table runners, tote bags, placemats, pillows, you name it!--I think of how my mother could create an amazing inventory for a market like this. If we lived closer to one another, I think there would definitely be some mother-daughter craft show appearances in our future!
