Some exciting things this past month/coming month:
- I was accepted to The HUDSON RIVER EXCHANGE which will be taking place June 27th/28th. To be accepted into a juried market is really quite an honor, especially as a newer business. So I'm really excited to have this opportunity to bring my shop to the people... in person! If you're local or semi-local, it's going to be held at the Hudson River Park from 10a-6p on the 27th and 11a-4p on the 28th. It's going to be an honor to be selling amongst some of the most talented makers and collectors of the Hudson Valley!
- Our first camping trip of the year is coming up. This is probably my husband's and my favorite thing to do. There is nothing like sleeping under the stars with only a sheet of fabric between you and the rest of the world. Don't get me wrong, I love our house- but it's incredibly necessary to check out (on the cheap) and just escape! Needless to say, we're super excited! We've got two more high peaks lined up for this first trip which will be fantastic.
- I finally opened the handmade shop, The Grey Birch! Right now it's minimally stocked, but I promise that there will be some really great and exciting things coming. Everything from The Grey Birch and (lots from) The Grey Birch Vintage will be available at the HUDSON RIVER EXCHANGE. If you see something from either shop that you'd like to purchase or see in person, let me know!
I've also resolved to try to actually write more. I'm not the strongest writer, nor the most interesting to be honest. I'm way more of a visual person, but with the suggestion of my amazingly supportive friends, I think I'm going to start chronicling the prep for the market. I've done markets in the past, but it has been quite some time. I'll share with you my tips and tricks that I've learned along the way!
I'll even throw in some fun camping/hiking related things as well.
Well, I believe it's time to start making for the day...
