Spring Vending!

daffodilsWe’re thinking about spring weather, around these parts things are a little chilly. With the flowers blooming you can’t help but notice spring is on the way! With Spring comes one of our busy seasons, with a fair almost every weekend. Here’s a preview of them all, we hope you can make it to some of them! They’re all a little different, and unique. GO WEST! Craft Fest of course is our baby so I can’t help but hope you’ll come to that with jugglers and an aerialist performance, what more can you ask (other than all the cool handmade goods you’ll find). Without further adieu….

30th Street Craft Market NOW Feb 23rd!

Cheers to all of you who got TOO MUCH snow last weekend, around these West Philly parts the snow was slim pickins, still we went sledding in Fairmont Park, where it was a little deeper. In anticipation I made a new prototype dress for L, with more to come for the masses. valentines 007

GO WEST! *holiday* Craft Fest this weekend!

We’re getting so excited for this weekend. Our holiday Fest is almost here and we’ve been so busy making and promoting, not to mention doing that for all the other fairs this season! This one is our baby though, and feels really special. It’s our 3rd year of having a holiday fair at The Rotunda. The first was Second Saturdays (anyone remember that?) then we transformed into GO WEST! They’ve all been really fun and busy, with great local vendors and a terrific crowd. I hope for nothing less this year, once again we have an awesome line up of vendors, many who have been there from the start, and some very first timers too. We also have food (and coffee) from Black Orchid, treats & pops from the Lil Pop Shop and ice cream from the debuting West Philly company Weckerleys!

Check out our pintrest page for a sneak peek at some of the wares that will be there. Also the complete listing of the vendors is here on our blog. I can’t wait to see everyone there and am anticipating a busy and fun filled day! There will be handmade holiday gifts for pretty much everyone.

the GO WEST! Craft Fest is just around the corner…!

Don’t forget to “like” GO WEST! Craft Fest’s fb page

Wow, we’ve been busy! What with marking spaces, putting fliers around, last minute details and spreading the internet word not to mention talking it up to anyone who’ll listen, we’ve been doing a lot mostly with L by our side (she talks it up too!). Did I say sewing up a storm and cutting and polishing?

We’re terribly excited though and think you should be too! This Fest promises to be the biggest one yet, with wonderful performers, an awesome array of vendors, possible jugglers and definitely a free face painter. GO WEST’s  blog can tell you all about it and will give you links to all of our talented vendors. Our pintrest can give you a little sample of what you’ll find too.  We’re trying to put out positive thoughts about the weather and think of sun, sun, sun or at least not rainy clouds… We hope you’ll come join us and if the rain date does have to happen we’ll post it up right away. But it won’t, and this coming Saturday is shaping up  to be a wonderful day to be in The Woodlands vending and shopping and hanging out! Don’t forget your picnic blanket…
