The Women's League Flea Market and Fieldhouse Full of Awesome Stuff

Well what can you expect from a name like that! (awesomeness!) I love doing this show mostly because I get to hang out with some vendors I don't get to see a lot. This year all my favorites were there and some new ones too! I had a pretty good day hanging out with my art partner Darcy Goedecke! We shared a booth and you can't help but be inspired by all her creations!

This year I told myself I had a limited budget and shouldn't buy too much. Did I listen to myself? No! It is amazing to me what other makers create. I love supporting other artists because I know it just keeps them going and everyone I purchase from I definitely want to see around for a long time. Plus buying from small businesses just makes me feel good, and having it be something I love, can't beat that!

I walked around in the morning snapping some photos of some of these amazing small businesses. Take a look and give them support if you feel inspired to do so!

The vendors pictured are:

Darcy Goedecke, Atlas Past, Pepper Pot Polish, KV Apothecary, Libertine Tacoma Gourmet, C. Bee Designs and Lucy Nilan.

Lincoln Winter Market 2014

The Olympia vibe was alive and well at this last Saturday's Lincoln Winter Market. Thank you to everyone who came out for Shop Small Saturday at this event! It was a success and I'm grateful to all the people who made it happen! Here is just a sampling of the cool stuff you can get from makers right here in Olympia and surrounding areas.

Here is part of my booth setup!

My neighbor was Atlas Past, who I have been neighbors with at a few shows and believe me it's hard for me not to buy a million things!

I have to post something with my favorite mushroom! I just love this little woodland scene by WoodSong Felts!

Here's another one from WoodSong Felts that I just love! What does the fox say? (couldn't resist sorry!)

Here's Nature Nouveau Designs who I also am a shop mate with at Oly Artisan Annex!

Baskets by Carol was also there! Aren't these cute?

Love the display and these unique shoes by Lady Frog Designs!

Linda Landig Jewelry was there, my second show with this lovely lady!

Artful Ends was there with her Vegan Handmade Womens Accessories & Home Decor! You should check out her adorable Hand Sewn Felt Ice Skate Ornaments!

JWT Designs was there with her gorgeous handmade jewelry! I will see her again soon at Duck the Malls!

I love Cascadia Terroir's packaging!
