Handmade Holiday Shopping

I know I’ve been gone for a while, but I just wanted to invite you to the Lucky Star Holiday Market at the Prairie Moon Winery in Ames, Iowa on December 4th and 5th. I’ll be selling my handmade goods there on both days along with lots of other cool artists and vendors. You’re sure to find something unique for that person that’s hard to shop for in your life.

I did this show for the first time last year and was very impressed with how well the show was publicized and organized. It’s the best crafts show I’ve ever done and I’m happy to be a part of it again this year. There was a huge turnout last year and I hope it’s the same again this year.

I’ve been as busy as one of Santa’s elves the last few weeks, trying to finish making items for the show. I have some new items this year that I hope will be popular. I always like to see what people are interested in buying. It seems like it’s different each time.

If you received my shop newsletter, I mistakenly wrote that admission was free on Saturday. It actually costs $1 to get in, which I think is still quite a deal considering all the great artists whose work you’ll get to see. Friday night there will be a Preview Party. It costs $10 to get in and you get first dibs on everything. I’ll be there from 6:00-9:00 on Friday and 9:00-4:00 on Saturday. I hope to see you there!


Join Me for Some Christmas Shopping

I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving and survived Black Friday. I decided to stay home that day and avoid all the chaos. I’m so glad I did. I can’t believe that Christmas is only three weeks away! I’ve just barely begun my Christmas shopping. I really need to get started.

Speaking of Christmas and holiday shopping, I will be selling my wares at the Lucky Star Market at the Prairie Moon Winery in Ames this Friday and Saturday. I’ve never done this show before, so I’m kind of excited about it and hope there’s a huge turnout for it. If you’re in the Ames/Des Moines area, I hope you’ll stop by. There will be a lot of great vendors there. You’re sure to find that special handmade something for that hard-to-shop-for person in your life. And you’ll be helping to support a local artist.


I’ll be there Friday from 6:00-9:00 p.m. (it’s a special Preview Party). It costs $10 to get in and you’ll have first dibs on everything. On Saturday I’ll be there 9:00-4:00. Saturday is free and the show is open from 9:00-4:00. I hope to see you there!
