Ravenswood ArtWalk: 17th Annual Tour of Arts & Industry

Can you believe it is September already? Suddenly it is time for one of my favorite art fairs of the year, the Ravenswood ArtWalk! This year I return to the Atrium building, formally known as Hayes Properties, and will set up my stands there. I look forward to seeing familiar artists and getting to know new […]

Gifted artists at the Friendly Coffee Lounge

My last June pop up was on the 16th. I made some Berwyn-specific map angels and also added to the depleted musical angel collection. The Berwyn Craft & Vintage Market has been ongoing for a while, but I was late to the application table. Only a June slot was available. I loaded up the car, and […]

Feeling Beautiful in Hermosa

The first weekend of June was a whirlwind. I had just finished setting up the Evanston Made Pop Up Shop merchandise and attended the Group show opening when its as time to pack up my car and head to Hermosa. I had never heard of this Chicago subdivision, but loved the Field House we were […]

Berwyn Craft & Vintage Market June 16

A year or two ago a friend invited me to the Berwyn Craft & Vintage Market, and I finally applied. So once I return from Bead & Button, I will pack up my stakes and ornaments to explore this new-to-me suburb. The Craft & Vintage Market is slated for Saturday, June 16 from 10 AM to […]

Saucey Sauce Walk!

I love the Main Dempster Mile and had a blast at the Sauce Walk. I set up at Dietrich 21, a fitness studio I pass by but had not set foot in until our Sauce Walk Pairing.  Agnes took a plethora of photos, so this is quite a well-documented pop-up. Yoga teacher Gina had fun […]

Evanston Made Anticipation

Phew, It’s been major prep time for me this past week. Fresh off the Sauce Walk I had to pick out my pieces for the Evanston Made Pop Up Shop. Then I was asked to bring some pieces to Nasty Women as well. So, in addition to the Hermosa ArtShow this weekend, I’ll be spending […]

Teaching at Bead & Button in June

Next month the Bead & Button Show returns to Milwaukee. I love going bead shopping there, and this year I will also be teaching. This year, Brenda Schweder of Now That’s a Jig! Fame will offer 20 in-booth workshops. The Now That’s a Jig! Booth, number 907, will be teeming with wire designers who will […]

Fun at the Mother’s Day Gift Market

Mid-May was a whirlwind of pop up fairs. On May 9 I returned to the Ravenswood Covenant Church for their second annual Mother’s Day Gift Market and had a lovely time. This time I remembered to bring my own table! I had fun accommodating all the new stakes I had been making, and my bees got […]
