This year was our biggest Handmade Vintage Market yet! We had a blast and we are worn out. Putting on a market is not for the faint of heart. Lots of hours and prep and meetings took place to make it happen. We had a great list of vendors this year. Wonderful musicians. Fabulous sponsors. We are so grateful to the amazing customers that came through and supported small businesses.

Our amazing Market Photographer is Matthew Doudt Photography and you can see all of the pictures on our Facebook page.


Take a peek at the vendors for the November 2015 market! They were amazing and still have a lot of goodies that need new homes:

Handmade-Vintage-Market-Logo-spring I can hardly believe that another Handmade Vintage Market is just a few weeks away. This time, we have a focused theme which makes gift giving for events in May-June super easy. We’ve picked vendors and products to make it easy to shop for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, end of year teacher gifts and weddings. The twelve vendors that we’ve picked are a perfect fit for us. Even if you’re not local, you can check them all out below and support these great small businesses. (you can see pics of our last market here)

Please, please, please share our event with your friends! Even if you’re not local, possibly someone you know lives in the Indianapolis area and would like to come. Or you could be like a few of our visitors at the last market and make a road trip out of it (we had some driving hours to attend – so grateful!). See you May 2-3!

Oh boy, was this weekend fun! We had no idea what to expect with it being our first year in a public place with vendors that we didn’t necessarily know beforehand. To say it went smoothly is an understatement. There were times that it was jam packed in the venue and I think almost all of the vendors are so pleased with how the weekend turned out. We had 17 vendors and quite a few hundred people coming to shop. There are a few kinks to work out for next time but all in all I’m so happy with the Handmade & Vintage Market 2013. Look at all of these amazing, quality, beautiful goods that we had for sale…

HVM 2013 Postcard (correction) Hey all! It might be quiet around here because I’m prepping for this weekend’s Handmade & Vintage Market. I’m so excited – we have 17 vendors this year and we never thought in a million years that it would be this large. It’s being held in Noblesville at Greater Things and you can get all of the details on the facebook page.

HVM1 HVM2 HVM3 HVM4Not local? I have great news for you! Any extras will be listed at in a ready to ship category for immediate purchase AND I’ve just decided on Black Friday – Cyber Monday deals so make sure you don’t miss out. I’ll have items at a GREAT discount up for grabs for your Christmas giving. Have a great week!

Handmade Holidays is my annual open house at Christmastime where I allow people into my home to shop from my items as well as other vendors. This year I took the time to curl my growing-out hair and put on a pretty dress. The beauty of this outfit is that is SUPER comfortable. You can’t go wrong with a flowy dress and leggings in my opinion!

The dress is one that I got at GAP on clearance ($9.99) back in the spring and didn’t wear this summer so I pulled it out, paired it with a GAP outlet cardi ($14.99) and got ready for a day on my feet! The necklace is the I Carry Your Heart necklace in my shop with a freshwater pearl added. Simple, comfortable and fun – just the way I like it!

I love comfy cute! What’s your favorite comfortable cute outfit? Give me some ideas!!
