heirlooms artisan market 2013. recap.

so. i've taken the last few days to let my mind and fingers rest. it's been a long few months of prep. i'll admit, even tho i'm resting up, i feel lost - like i should be sewing! and i will be. soon. but for now, here's a recap of the weekend:

i had fun, learned a lot and sold some stuff.

this was my first outdoor market, and thanks to my lovely inlaws, i borrowed their 10' x 10' pop up tent. i was setting up shop alone so time to make fast friends with my neighbours who were also setting up. check out courtney and tim on their website, as well as on facebook. they were great neighbours.

on the other side of me was mike, from and the day seemed to go by a little faster with someone to talk to. don't forget to check out the vast array of jellies on their facebook page.

erin was the show organizer who did a great job and the staff members of vermeer's garden centre were nothing but lovely.

my donuts sold like hotcakes ;) and i sold out of all my owls. it was a great learning experience and i had fun talking to everyone who stopped by my booth.

jody edwards was another vendor at the show a few booths down from me and she took an extensive number of photos. you can find them on her facebook page here:, under heirlooms 2013 album. she does some really beautiful paintings so check out her etsy shop: in a funny coincidence she also went to sheridan college for illustration but was a few years behind me.

so in all. it was a great experience. i'm already planning my next adventure, so stay tuned!


  1. looks amazing Erin! I wish i could of seen it in person. xo

    1. thanks annie, that would have been fun! xo

  2. OMG! I didn't even see your owls there! Sooooo cute! Thanks for the mention :) Hope to see you at another show soon :)

  3. It looks like it was wildly successful and I'm just so proud of you. And your talent, as always, just amazes me.
