Things are getting hairy over at Orange Twist. Literally. This morning I took time out from the nonstop prep for the National Stationery Show to clean our slow-running bathroom drains. Blech.
Besides occasional household cleaning when I just can’t stand the choas and dirt any longer, I’ve been in full out Stationery Show mode. BUT before Mr. Mate and I jet to New York next month, I’ll be participating in three markets which should be festive and fun for all involved. Mother’s Day is May 12th and we’ll have a great selection of cards for her at each event.
Up first is the May 5 Fremont Sunday Market where I will be sharing space with our friends at Oliotto (awesome leather cuffs and screenprinted tea towels) and Rain City Forge (modern hand forged jewelry). We’ll be one booth away from the start of the market in stalls 127 and 128. That weekend is also the Mobile Food Rodeo so it should be a perfect opportunity to chow on some food-truck deliciousness and pick up great cards, cuffs, and jewelry. The Market runs 10 am to 5pm on North 34th Street between Evanston Avenue North and Phinney Avenue North.
I’ll be stocking cards and prints at the Phinneywood Art walk Friday and Saturday, May 10 and 11th at The Studio of Awesome. This pop-up shop will feature over 25 handpicked artists and will run noon to 9 pm each day at 101 N 85th Street Suite 201 (on the opposite corner from the Fred Meyer).
The final market before the Stationery Show will be down in Portland at the Crafty Wonderland Super Colossal Spring Sale. I’ll be in booth 80 and debuting new Portland and Oregon specific designs! This is a one day show, includes goodie bags for the first 200 people in line, and new for this year, a wedding wonderland for brides and grooms looking for handmade goodness on their special day. The show runs 11 am to 6 pm at the Oregon Convention Center, Exhibit Hall D at 777 NE MLK Jr. Boulevard.
Can’t wait to see you!
