10471187_10152675083984697_6982340452008395433_nIt’s that time of year again! Fall festival season is upon us! We’ve added some exciting to shows to our lineup as well as some of our favorites. We hope you can join us at some of these!

August 29th-31st
First up – come out and see us in Mt. Juliet, Tenn. for the Burlap & Berries Barn Sale Market. This event is new for us, and we can’t wait to do a little shopping ourselves while we are there! Vintage finds, repurposed furniture, handmade goods, jewelry, art, live music and a barn side cafe  – sounds like a recipe for a great weekend, don’t you agree?

October 2nd-4th
We are excited to be a part of the The Hayloft at Port Royal Barn Sale this year! Another new event for us, this barn sale is held on a beautiful farm in Clarksville, Tenn. This sale creates a unique marketplace of 40 plus vendors offering antiques, vintage, handmade, repurposed furniture, art and jewelry held at a old Amish dairy barn. Just think who doesn’t like a great and fun day of shopping, a nice lunch at The Barnside Café and live music along with great conversation? You won’t want to miss this one!

October 17th-19th
We are excited to again be a part of the Foothills Fall Festival in Maryville, Tenn. this year! Nestled at the Foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, Maryville, Tennessee hosts three days of amazing world class concerts (did someone say Tim McGraw?!), juried arts and crafts, and activities, shows, and much more for the whole family. This is one of our favorite events – Maryville is the most charming town!

October 25th & 26th
We’ll be headed to the Chiaha Harvest Fair in Rome, GA .  The Chiaha Harvest Fair celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2014, reveling in a rich tradition of bringing together many talented artisans and craftsmen from the southeast for a wonderful Fall weekend festival with the goal of raising money to support local art efforts throughout the year. There will be over 120 artists and craftsman, continuous live entertainment, children’s art activities, and some good ole’ southern home cooking and sweet treats. Free hot apple cider and free parking. This is an event you won’t want to miss, and is well worth the drive to beautiful Rome, Georgia!

 

Of course you can find us on some of the remaining Sundays at The Chattanooga Market – check our facebook page for details of which Sundays we will attend! There are a few more events in the works that we can’t wait to share with you – stay tuned! And see you soon!

All New in 2014!

DSC_0164Hi folks! Long time no see! But it was worth it, we promise! We have been really busy during our off season working on some awesome new processes and an all new product line.

Over the past few years we’ve been handcrafting accessories out of fabrics that we’ve sought out from popular designers, but have really been interested in creating our own designs for our fabrics. So we’ve done just that over the Winter off-season.

We are so excited to share with you what we’ve been up to – and we hope you love it as much as we do!

We’ll have tea towels, canvas totes, and pillow covers from our new line ready for the Chattanooga Market this Sunday! And keep an eye out for our new baby gift line – still in the works, but coming really soon!

Our pillow covers are made from soft linen, and boast some beautiful ink colors that are a great pop to freshen up your sofa, that bench on your porch, or a perfect accent for you kiddo’s nursery!

The market totes are a perfect size for shopping the Market! Two pockets on the outside, and ample room on the inside, too! We gotta say, we think they are totes adorbs!

Our tea towel line includes several quirky designs that are sure to brighten your kitchen! These super-soft flour sack tea towels are pretty functional too! Lint free and durable – perfect for drying (fruits, vegetables, dishes and glassware), wiping-up messy kitchen spills, dry-dusting televisions and computer screens, cleaning windows and mirrors. We just love them! What statement will you make in your kitchen?
