WIST-ers On The Road: Oct. 22nd-24th

Let the Handmade Holiday shopping begin! 

Three of our team members will be selling their handcrafted wares at shows in the Wauwatosa, Rockford and Madison areas this weekend.  What a fantastic opportunity to meet Etsy shopkeepers in person and find original, unique, quality gifts sure to be loved by the people on your holiday list!

Tilney and Ryan of MANvsGEORGE will be at the Tosa Farmers' Market 1-Day Artisan Market Day this Saturday, October 23rd from 8am to 12pm.  The market is located in the
City Parking Lot (near the Little Red Store) at 7720 Harwood Ave., Wauwatosa, WI (a lovely city just west of Milwaukee).

This special market features the work of 25 talented crafts people offering fine art, jewelry, accessories, wood furniture, and more.  MANvsGEORGE will be selling their fun and modern greeting cards, including holiday card sets and boxed card sets perfect for gift-giving.  Honestly, I love just about everything in their shop, but if I had to pick two favorites they would be: the cheery Candy Striped Bird card and the bold and bright  O Christmas Tree box set.

Twisted Planet  will be at Rock Con this Friday, Oct. 22nd (6-9pm); Saturday, Oct. 23rd (9am-7pm); and Sunday, Oct. 24th (9am - 3pm).  This is a Midwest Gaming Convention located at Wedgebury Indoor Sports Center, 8800 East Riverside Blvd, Rockford (Loves Park), Illinois 61111.

Twisted Planet will be selling her fantastic upcycled wares such as gaming pendants, board game clocks and recycled jewelry.  Personally, I'm adding her Fiesta Paper Bead Necklace made of recycled wrapping paper to my holiday wish list! 

And lastly, as I sat down to write this post, I remembered that I have a show this weekend, too.

Rachael Brooke of Rachael Brooke Art Jewelry will be at the 2nd Annual Wine and Cheese Tasting & Art Show this Saturday, Oct. 23rd from 7-9pm.  The event helps raise funds and collect food for the Sun Prairie Food Pantry and is held at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, 3416 Swansee Ridge (corner of Hwys 19 & C), Sun Prairie, WI 53590.

Enjoy wine and cheese sampling from Cannery Wine & Spirits, arts & crafts from select local artists, live entertainment, and a raffle.  Rachael will be selling jewelry from her Vintage Redux Collection and Classic Collection with free gift boxes and wrapping - mention the WIST Moo Crew blog to get 15% off your purchase!  My  Droste Chocolate Tin Earrings are the perfect holiday accessory - festive, cheerful and one-of-a-kind.
