On The Road: Nov. 13th & 14th

This week several of our team members will be selling their wares in Madison and one will be at a show in Glendale.  Come out this weekend to visit talented Etsy shopkeepers in person and bring their well-made, creative, handcrafted goods home to share with your family & friends this holiday season!

The Crafty Fair will be held on Sunday, Nov. 14th (10am-4pm) at The Goodman Community Center  located at 149 Waubesa Street in Madison, WI.  This fresh, new indie-artisan show offers shoppers a wide array of original, unique handcrafted goods by 20 talented crafters in an easily accessible venue.  You can even enjoy great food and coffee before or after the show at the Ironworks Cafe - inside the community center.  For more info, visit The Crafty Fair Facebook page.

Rosy Hawbaker of Recreative Crafts organized the show and has been doing a killer job of promoting it and all the crafty vendors.  Rosy's design mantra is "REfresh. REuse. REcreate".  You can shop for her creatively-crafted goods like the Bike Skirt  made out of T shirts and screen printed. 

Jess of Little Dandelion Studios will be selling scarves and accessories for the ladies, hats and hair accessories for the babies, and baskets and pretty clips for the home.  You can stay cozy and stylin' all winter long in her  Super Cowl in Sunny Yellow

Rachael of Rachael Brooke Art Jewelry will be selling her "High-Style/Low-Tech" jewelry.  Ok, it's just too odd writing about myself in the 3rd person.  My Vintage Redoux Collection features jewelry crafted from vintage, antique or simply second-hand metal objects such as: tea, candy & tobacco tins; aluminum drinkware; and serving trays with 100% recycled sterling wire.  Looking for the perfect holiday accessory?  Check out my Vintage Droste Chocolate Tin Earrings.

Dana of DyNamo will selling a variety of accessory options such as jewelry, knitted items, and hair accessories.  Check out her  Pin Up Girl Rockabilly Retro Feather Hair Clip   - bright & fabulous!

Other WIST Team members who will be at The Crafty Fair include: Heather of HRBeaDesign , Amanda of DaisyMaySipes and Shelia Howe of SassMama Arts

DyNamo will also be at the Autumn Artisan's Fair on Saturday, Nov. 13th (1am - 4pm).  The fair will be held at Nicolet High School located at 6701 N. Jean Nicolet Dr. in Glendale, WI.
