shopping local

Just wanted to share a few rad photos by the talented Cat Rocketship from Market Day. (Cat is an amazing artist, by the way. See her work here and check back every Friday for her One Day Friday Payday Sale.) Anyway, yes – Market Day's Black Friday Sale was a huge success! You might have seen us on KCCI or ABC5 on Thanksgiving night. Or check out the story on Market Day on CNN Money.

One of the best parts of hanging at local craft fairs is meeting cool people, like Dan Welk of Click Photography. I picked up one of his Travelers prints. Check out his brilliant perspective on the day here.

I'm also a new fan of Kevin House's original collages and prints. I had to snag one of his small collages.

There was also tons of handmade jewelery.

And fun holiday garlands and decorations, like these from Disco Lemonade. (She made me a cool custom garland made from cut-up circular sweater pieces.)

And here's the view of my booth, while I still had a rainbow-colored pile of hand-knit goods on the table. Thanks again to Cat Rocketship and all the MSMF peeps for a fantastic holiday show and super successful first year of Market Day. See you again in the spring. :)
