On The Road: Nov. 5th-7th

Happy November and happy holiday shopping!

Three of our team members will be selling their handcrafted wares at shows in the Waukesha, Milwaukee, and Sparta areas this weekend.  It's the first show for Dianna - have fun and good luck!  What a fantastic opportunity to meet Etsy shopkeepers in person and find original, unique, quality gifts for the people on your holiday list!

Mary of mary*mule designs will be at the St. William Christian Women Annual Craft Fair this Saturday, Nov. 6th (9am-4:30pm) and Sunday, Nov. 7th (8:30am-2pm).  The fair is held at St. William Catholic Church located at 440 N. Moreland Blvd, Waukesha, WI.

The fair features a delightful variety of quality handcrafted items, holiday crafts with a raffle, bake sale and food concession featuring their signature hot turkey sandwich.  Mary will be selling her fabric accessories including: coffee cozies, cosmetic bags, tote bags.  Stop by to snap up her newest designs - coupon organizers and curling iron cozies.  I'm in love with this charcoal and floral zip pouch  from her shop!

Judi Ruedy of Apollo Hills Crafts will be at the Monroe County Historical Society's 71st Annual Arts, Crafts & Country Gift Show on Saturday, Nov. 6th (9am - 4pm).  The show is held at the Sparta Senior High School at 506 N. Black River St. (corner of Hwy. 27 and Montgomery St.) in Sparta, WI

It's an arts & crafts mega-show with more than 300 booths that fill two gyms, a lunch room and the hallways.  You will be amazed at all the handmade items this show offers. A local youth group will provide food in the cafeteria.  Judi will be selling her unique quilted bags, purses, large quilts, quilted table runners and quilted wall hangings.  Her lovely Hosta Leaf Purse has me longing for Spring already!

Dianna of Davis Jewelry Designs  will be at the St. Therese Parish Craft Fair on Saturday, Nov. 6th (9am-4pm) and Sunday, Nov. 7th (11am-4pm).  The church is located at 9525 W Bluemound Rd, Milwaukee, WI. 

This craft fair features handcrafted goods and a raffle to benefit the Hunger Task Force.  One lucky ticket holder will win a pair of Dianna's chain mail earrings! She will be selling her gemstone, pearl and chain mail jewelry. My personal pick for the holidays would be these lovely Chain Mail Earrings with Red Moukaite
