Last night I volunteered to help out with the
VIP Preview Party for the Cool Craft Market this weekend for Handmade In America.
I had an amazing time.
There was that part of me that was saying, "Amy, you've been up since 5am...you should just go home and go to bed."
But I felt I needed to go.
On I went. They had yummy small bites from Storm next door, a nice band, and 25 local vendors.
The best part of the evening was chatting one-on-one with talented women crafters. I found some new local favorites...
Anita M. Walling creates pots for your senses and your soul.
Jude Lally caught my eye with her wondrous witch dolls.
They are magical.
Ryan-Ashley Anderson's business is called Fray Knot.
I asked her for a business card and she handed my a pencil with her business name and a quote that sang to my heart, "creativity is rising up within you. I can feel it."
If you live in Asheville, or near...go check out the Cool Craft Market this weekend...you have today until 5pm.
Tomorrow, Sunday 11-4.
Handmade In America is located on
125 South Lexington, Suite 101.
Support handmade. Buy local!
Peace, Inspiration, & Love,
