to market

my table at Renegade Brooklyn last year, the start of it all!

Though I've learned this lesson time and time again, I'm always amazed at how quickly time flies. I was reminded today that Renegade is this coming weekend in Brooklyn and I am so glad I decided not to participate this year. It was fun and lucrative last year but, man, I could definitely not manage it with the impending move (next week? keep your fingers crossed!) not to mention the relative lack of stock in the shop.

I did, however, sign up for a new regular local market that I'm so, so excited about. It's called Tight Knit (righteous name) and will be held in conjunction with our largest regional farmer's market in Troy every Saturday this summer. It begins this Saturday, June 6, though I won't be there that day. Here are the dates you can find me there, at Monument Square in Troy, from 10am to 2pm:

Saturday, June 13
Saturday, June 20 (during Riverfest, Troy's summer festival)
Saturday, June 27
Saturday, July 11
Saturday, July 25
Saturday, August 29

:It does seem like a lot, eh? Especially with less stock than I would like. But I think it will be pretty chill and just really great to get some more local exposure. I'm excited!
Of course, there's a lot of work to be done in just a little more than a week. Mainly I need to find/buy a canopy tent. Anybody have any recommendations for a good craft fair tent?

  1. my husband and i like to play a game "if i had a million dollars", and if i had a million dollars i would buy everything in your etsy shop. i love your work! for now i will have to be patient and buy things one at a time. *sigh*

  2. Aw, that's sweet Meghan! If I had a million dollars I would give away my art for free....we can dream!

  3. I know the cost a bit, but the EZ up tents are the only ones that really hold up during all kinds of weather. Good luck with your fairs!! You'll do great.
