Getting Ready for Holiday Events

I've been painting and crafting up a storm this week in preparation for some upcoming local events that I'll be participating in...


The first event is the 3rd Annual Artisans/Crafters Fair at The Preserve at Jordan Lake (Chapel Hill) where my friend and fellow vendor Shirley from Housepitality Designs lives.  The fair runs 10am-3pm this Saturday (November 10th) at the Clubhouse located at 840 The Preserve Trail, Chapel Hill.
I'll be selling painted furniture, jewelry, fall cotton centerpieces, as well as some Christmas items that I've been working on like these fun little moss topiary trees...
 and just a few wreaths...
I've been working on new batches of wax seal pendants as well...
and I'll also have plenty of my typewriter key pendants, letter bubble necklaces...

 as well as some new creations like these long icicle glass pendants made from chandelier parts...
And since I recently found this perfectly-sized round dough bowl on my shopping excursion in Greensboro, I'll be selling my large rectangular dough bowl now...can't keep both!
My mom will also be there selling some of her beautiful pillows and these table runners that she's hand-sewn...
This is just a sampling of the goods that will be there.  I hope you'll join us this Saturday!

Good luck - your items are lovely. I wish I was just a bit closer so I could attend. In this part of SC we do not have these types of fairs. Just craft shows.

Hi Kristen, Everything looks lovely! The wreath with the cotton is especially sweet.

My mom and I are planning to come. Save one of those table runners for me, please. (My table is 78 inches oval.)

Looking forward to the fair.

You've been busy and everything looks gorgeous! Probably a good thing I don't live nearby or I would want to snatch it all up. ;-) Thanks so much for sharing at Inspiration Friday this week!

Hi Kristen! I absolutely love that cotton wreath! Where can I get one?? :) Would you be interested in making me one for the holidays?

Eclectically Vintage said...

That wreath is amazing!! Why didn't I stop by the side of the road when I was in NC and fill my car with cotton?! I just may need to have you mail me a box!

Pinning this beauty!
