Manic Monday Must Have: Inde VT

This past weekend was a good one for me. I decided to take the 2.5 hour drive to Burlington, Vermont to go to the Queen City Craft Bazaar. Despite the drive, the rain, and a faulty umbrella it was a worthwhile venture!
So, today's Manic Monday Must Have is: Inde Vermont. Below are some of my favorites...YES I KNOW...there are A LOT of them!

I snagged as many business cards as I could get my hands onto and have been checking out all these super websites, etsy stores and blogs. Below is just a portion of what I got to see, Saturday. Click on these photos and check out the works of these crafters, and for a complete list of the participants go to the Queen City Craft Bazaar's blog.

I was completely impressed with the wide variety of work that was represented in Burlington. And, I HAVE to say that all the artists and crafters were super friendly and generous. I loved that there was a wide variety of price points. I was going on a tiny budget and was able to come home with three fab finds. Plus, I found the artists to be very generous with their tried and true tricks. This is a common thread I find among crafters--this sense of community and willingness to share new techniques and resources.
I hope that the Queen City does this again. I'd go again for sure!

Thank you so much for this wonderful review of my show and for featuring a pair of my earrings. I am SO glad you had a wonderful time at the show. Your reaction of it is exactly what I was hoping to get from customers. I am glad you decided to make the trip from NH. I hope you enjoyed your visit to Burlington and that you will come again to another one of our shows.

Thanks again! Kacey of Queen City Craft / Subsixstudios
