eye on the calendar

I was just in the studio working away with the tv on and heard on the news that this weekend is Memorial Day weekend. I thought uh-oh! Art Star is THIS weekend, how did I get so mixed up, I'm not ready. Then I thought, slow down a minute and I looked at a calendar, again uh-oh. Although I was right about Art Star being next weekend, I've been telling people, lots of people it's Memorial Day weekend and being very careful to specify it's only on saturday and sunday. Uh-oh, I've been spreading lies. I'm so sorry, I've had alot going on and apparently it is affecting me more than I thought. So please, mark you calendar's correctly for another great year of Philly's greatest indie craft show, The Art Star Craft Bazaar!!!!! May 30 & 31.

And while I'm here baring my flaws, I recently broke 2 large platters at a show, part wind, part my poor display stand choice. So if you happen to be praying to the god of weather, please mention that Philly would like a nice calm beautiful weekend on May 30 & 31. I will also gladly accept tips on how to display plates and platters at outdoor shows!
Happy, whatever day it is!

saturday show!

Good friday to ya! I am packing up again to head back to Baltimore for Squidfire's Spring Art Mart on Mt. Vernon Square. This will be a fun show, with some of my favorite makers. It is outside so bring an umbrella just in case! Check out the show page for directions and links to the wonderful makers sites. This will be my last trip down to Baltimore for a few months, so please come out to say hello and check out my new wares in person.
On sunday, remember to send your mom some love, it's Mother's Day! Have a Happy Weekend, xoxo, Linda

moving forward

I'm back from Baltimore, the show was beautiful but barely attended. To be honest, I am disappointed, very disappointed as I had faith in the organizers to pull in a decent crowd. And judging by the incredible group of makers, it is truly a shame. And for me it was an expensive mistake which is actually the second mistake I made since going full-time. The first mistake was buying a year's worth of advertising with TheKnot - but what can I do, I'm still new at this. Mistakes will be made. We did however splurge on a yummy seafood dinner and got in a much needed night out!
Moving forward, I am adding my one of a kind pieces to my etsy shop this week. Above is my mama bird serving dish. It's a bit bowl like and a bit platter like, I love the usefulness of this piece and had a hard time putting it up for sale!
You can check out my etsy shop here:
Happy tuesday!

come out, come out, where ever you are!

psst! I'm in Baltimore right now at a very slow show. So if you are reading this and would like to come say hi, see some of the loveliest handmade furniture ever and of course my wares. Please come, here is the info: it is located at Fayette and Eutaw in the Hippodrome building - the entrance is on Fayette. There is an entry fee but please tell the ladies at the door that you have a free ticket from Little Flower Designs to have the show fee waved. I will also give you a 10% discount, just mention this blog post. We'll be here until 5pm today.

I'll be working like mad tomorrow to post a last minute Mother's Day Sale in my etsy shop. So please keep an eye out for that!
ps- this show is seriously nice, I'm shocked and sad no one is here to see it.

fine, fine weekend

Today is the set-up day for the Fine Furnishings & Fine Craft Show in Baltimore. I'm slowly making my way to load up my wares and an insane amount of stuff to peddle my pots on saturday and sunday. It's dreary out, at least the sun won't be in my eyes on the way down!
If you are in the Baltimore area and would like to visit the show (and me!) the show is being held in the France Merrick Performing Arts Center in the downtown area not far from the inner harbor so, let me plan your saturday!
  • wake up early-ish
  • head to the Lexington Market for coffee and breakfasty things
  • stroll down the block to the Fine Furnishings Show to see finely crafted goods
  • linger at my booth to chat and maybe pick up a pot or 2 (mother's day is next week)
  • linger some more
  • head over to the inner harbor, maybe even the aquarium or that huge barnes & noble it's a rainy day, so bring your umbrella!
  • there's alot to do and see and you did alot of walking, why not relax! it's the weekend!

Wish me luck!
xoxo, Linda
