Tonight, I’m gonna get right down to it: Allow me to introduce a few more artisans you’ll find at the Mama’s Artisan Market 2015.
Remember, we’re in Independence, just out the door from our Occasional Shop on the historic Creamery grounds. We’re packing in the artisans this year, so be sure to stop by. The fun starts Thursday, September 10. Then come back on the 11th and 12th for more, there’s new stuff each day!
You may recognize this talented lady from past Artisan Markets or from our city stores. We’re so excited to welcome back CAPtivating Designs to this year’s Artisan Market. Nicole is a girl after our hearts, searching out vintage and international caps in designs that may never be repeated as the supply is limited or in the hands of collectors. Plus, she’s promised to reveal some new designs at the Market and we know you won’t want to miss them!
After realizing that a majority of our clothing today is made in China, Leah decided to start making her own items from either vintage or repurposed materials and do her part in leaving something unique for future generations. And we’re so glad she did! She makes one-of-a-kind handbags using 100% recycled or vintage clothing, linens and materials. Leah says she loves the challenge of hunting down the perfect materials and working with what she has. We can’t wait to see what she brings to the Artisan Market!
Vintage on Bridge
We’re excited to also be welcoming back the girls from Vintage on Bridge this year! Our “neighbors” in charming downtown Delano, these girls share our passion for taking the discarded and turning it into something fabulous. We’re thrilled they’ve decided to share some of their fabulous with you at our market again this year! Located at 121 Bridge Ave E in Delano, they’re just a hop, skip & a jump from the Occasional Shop in Independence.
Melissa Anne Company
Local to Annandale, Melissa Anne designs and handcrafts arrows, signs and pennants. Melissa Anne says, “I like to make home décor out of wood, paint, and paper that include real words. Words that make you bust out laughing or remind your sweet self of true truth.” We love it and we think you will too.
Are you getting excited?!? Mark your calendars for September 10, 11 &12 and grab your friends. They’ll thank you later!
