Green With Indie Recap

I honestly tried to post this yesterday, after sleeping for 13 hours straight... and then taking a 4 hour nap in the afternoon... but blogger decided to be "down" when I finally wanted to use it. Anyway, it's back up now, so here's a look at my booth from the Green With Indie Craft Show!

Sean and I in my booth, ready to open

the other table almost ready to go

new clutches!

setting up the clutch tree... I designed this and Sean built it for me out of a 60" paper tube I brought home from work (I have a very large printer there) and dowel rods. We slid it over the base of my dress form to hold the tube and cut a slit in the top for signage!

clutches on the clutch tree... one of the event organizers told Sean he should probably start selling these to crafters for displaying at craft shows :)

new card cases! plenty more where these came from... my sewing machine decided it had had about enough late last week so there's already some more cut and waiting for the machine to recover!

fabric covered magnets... these babies hold up to two pounds. Each. and they're only about 1/2" in diameter. 

Repurposed fabric brooches. This display was Sean's idea! I wrapped foam core (eco-friendly foam core, I might add) in linen and put it inside a white picture frame, and then displayed it on a mini easel.

who can resist bobby pins in a cupcake tin?

Headbands! They're metal inside- so those of you who don't know your own strength like me won't end up breaking them the second time you wear them!

More headbands

Hair pins, similar to the brooches but have an alligator clip to clamp into your hair.

So that's that! Thanks to those of you who were able to come to the show. BIG thanks to Sean for helping me prep and set up. And for going home to get me jeans and a sweater because it was freezing in there. And for bringing me lunch. And for spending his entire Saturday at the show keeping me company, and then turning around on Sunday and building me a light box to take pictures in! What a man. 

For only having one month to prep I'm pretty thrilled with how everything turned out. I'm about out of business cards at this point... and I've got lots of work to do to get all of the remainder of these products up in the shop! Today I did a little post-major-event-hair-chop-off (photos to come later, mom) and did some running around to clean up the aftermath of GWI. It's kind of weird to think I don't have to work until midnight every night... and it's safe to say I'll be back to regular posting now that the show is over :)


  1. Your booth looks so adorable, I wish I could have seen it in person! I can't for the new stuff to come up in the shop. Those hair pins are so great.



  2. It all looks so great honey--thanks for posting so that Dad & I could see too.
