I hope everyone had the chance to read the last "Meet the Vendors" blog about our "specialty" vendor categories... now it's on to vendors that take care of you - your clothing, your body, and the ultra important handbag! And, because I am feeling quite like a little kid with excitement about Shop Crafty, there will be some info on those vendors that take care of your kids!
Clothing - whether it's a shrug with beautiful draping that makes you feel "SewLaLa"; a dress, skirt or appliqued onsie with a vintage focal point from junebeam; or art for your everyday wear with a dark sense of humor from Signifying Not, you will find something great to wear!
From head-to-toe, our Bath & Body vendors will take care of you on Saturday, April 16th! Our event will have the fine scent of aromatherapy for your well being from Craft for Causes; healthy and natural skincare from Fleegal Farms; the cutest handmade lip balms from LipGlosserie; adventures in bathtime with fun and flair from Nepenthe's Bathtime; handmade bath "treats" (bath bombs, bath salts, after-bath oil spray) from Violet Crown Soap and a Big Sigh Massage from Deborah Harriage. So don't worry - we can make you smell nice, feel smooth all over, pucker-up, have fun, give yourself a treat and relax - all in one day, and all at one great event!
*annemarie* Style for the Individual continues to feed my obsession with her gorgeous handbags, and you can purchase one yourself since she is one of the vendors in the Handbags/Purses category! Maybe you want a "naked bag" from GabsBags - handbags created from leather, in its purest form, "unadorned, undecorated and unbelievably elegant". Or there is the "eclectic, vintage, nature, with an Asian twist" bag choices from norea; bright and colorful bohemian bags from Sylvie Marie Bags with an attention to detail such as beaded handles; and for your traveling pleasure Connie S Designs has "weekender" sets with matching garment and tote bags - who says traveling in style can't be 100% handmade? With all those choices, you might have to buy a huge bag to put all your handbags in...
For all those moms and dads out there, Shop Crafty is family-friendly, and full of choices to deck your little ones out in the Baby/Kids category! If you want to shop for you and your little one, stop by Elle Dee Designs, where you will also find some dress up clothes! The "coolest kids" will want to go by Kandle Kidswear and pick a T-shirt with an original felted design. Then there is Kitty Riddle Couture and I think, "can I be a kid again so I can dress like this?"... bright colors and cool accessories for the little ones in your life! Mama Dee's Boutique doesn't want the boys in your life to feel left out, and they offer a fresh focus on boys' clothing with fun and bright characters. For kid conscious apparel, silk-screened in Austin on clothing made in America, orangeheat is the go-to-booth! If you want your little one to have a sassy-stance as she models a "handmade, 100% cotton, cute, good price and unique" dress, then stop by TEX 2 and pick one up - look at the rotating picture of kids' clothing and you will pick her out.
Whether you're shopping for your closet, bathroom, handbag addiction or to clothe your little one, Shop Crafty will be sure to delight! Save the date and purchase tickets in advance... they are BOGO online for only $5.00! Proceeds to benefit Crafting Comfort!
