The Brooklyn Indie Market

A full day in the elements. Below freezing temperatures and a snow storm! I met other awesome venders and some wonderful customers. Unveiled my new Baby Basil Amethyst Ring and my Garlic Clove Necklace. Both soon to be on Etsy. Here's quick photo of me modeling the Garlic Clove Necklace. By the end of the night it had sold!
Good complements and conversations. It is nice to get out of cyberworld once in awhile and see some live faces! Drank hot coco, coffee, green tea, chai, pretty much anything warm was amazing!
Some heat packets stuffed in my socks over my toes saved me. Those outdoor December venders are tough cookies.
By the end of the day, I was worn out. But would I do it all again?

Craft Show this Saturday!

Production has been in full force lately. And for good reason. And here are photos of my shop to prove it!
Hightower Botanicals will be at the "Handmade Holiday Craft Fair" this Saturday, December 12th in Brooklyn, NY at the 3rd Ward!!! I have been burning the midnight oil getting ready for my first craft show. I will have my herb and seed necklaces, along with a few new things, and some surprises. (hint hint- cookies on the house!)
If you are in town, stop by. It is more of a shopping party than your typical craft fair. Many many designers, the first 300 people get a free tote bag, live music, free coffee, food and drinks, a V.J....(ha! I laughed at that one), demos, free silkscreening and much much more.
