Hi all you lovely foxes! It's that time again, and The Handmade Pop Up is in full swing again starting today thru May 15th. If you didn't get a chance to check out the first ever launch last Fall, then I highly encourage you to check it out today! The concept originated from the amazing women behind Craft Your Life Collective (CYL) and Maker's Movement; with a desire to expand beyond their already exceptional maker oriented communities, they've worked hard to bring an online pop up shop to the masses with highly curated and extremely talented artists and small businesses. This way, you can experience a wide variety of art and handmade lovelies from across the globe.
The coolest part as a maker is the chance to get to know some truly amazing people that I otherwise probably wouldn't ever "meet!" There's only so many markets a small business like myself can fit on a calendar, with limitations around travel, timing, etc. This opportunity allows me to expand my own little community from the comfort of our base of Austin, Texas.
I've highlighted a few of my favorite things that are currently for sale on the website; I went through each and every category this morning and let me just say, there are some fabulous items out there now. I truly wish I could buy it all, but there are some definite "must haves" that I'm not going to be able to do without...I'm looking at you ceramic space cats. Plus, it's right in time for Mother's Day, so you can build a legit handmade gift basket for mom if you're feeling like going above and beyond, because you know she's worth it. Have fun shopping my friends!
