November Funky Junk Flea Market & Craft Fair

I'm looking forward to this long weekend, not only for the epic gorging that will take place this weekend (blah, blah, blah, family time.), but because I have yet another Funky Junk Flea Market & Craft Sale!  This month we're adding a Friday evening portion to our Saturday fair to coincide with Black Friday. The fine folks just down the street are putting on 5 Points Friday, a great event promoting shopping local for the holidays.  They've invited us to particpate alongside them, so all the more reason to come over to the East Side for amazing local shopping for the holidays!
This time around the sale will have a great array of vendors, some different from Friday to Saturday. (perhaps it's best to come BOTH days!). I hope to include a list of the vendors soon.

Upcoming events

So I've got a lot coming up in the next week and all of it is going to be a blast!

First off, this Saturday, is Boheme Collectif's Funk Junk Flea Market.  Tucked away in an odd little venue, Boheme Collectif will be featuring DJ Sooper Grover as well as some of the coolest, funkiest art, crafts and vintage Nashville has to offer.  It's also a fabulous venue for performance art and music, but I'll get to that in a minute.  You don't want to miss out on this!

Below is a sampling of items that I will have available there!

Next Wednesday, the Magic Cabaret will be putting on a night of magic, burlesque, music and so much more to help raise money for Suicide Prevention.  There will be prize packages and individual prizes auctioned off, a bake sale and more entertainment than you can shake a stick at.  I'll be contributing my semi-famous vegan (don't let that fool you) pumpkin bread and a few necklaces to the fundraising effort as well as enjoying the smorgasbord of delights set for the evening.  You can buy advance tickets here (includes 2 drink tickets!):

Last, but not least, EraBellum Artist Co-op will celebrate its official, Grand Opening!  It'll be Thursday, September 27th from 6 pm until 9 pm.  There will be food, fun, music and retail therapy available.  I am so excited about my booth there, check it out!

Made in Nashville

I am at Made in Nashville RIGHT NOW!  I apologize dear reader(s), I dropped the ball by not telling you before.  So I am telling you now, come on out, the weather is gorgeous, the food smells amazing and I hear there's a garden made entirely of BEER!  ;)
And I should probably mention that it all benefits literacy programs in Tennessee!

Missives from the Field

So, I participated in a craft fair this last Saturday that was a complete and total bust.  Well to call it a craft fair is kind of misleading there was a "recycled" craft/handmade section within a larger "green" expo.  I've never been to an event so poorly attended, up to and including a last minute yard sale and a craft show in a garage that no one could find.  I did better at BOTH of those events, by...I dunno', a LOT!  I don't know what happened, the organizers were friendly, helpful and on the ball, by all accounts, there was more advertising this year than last.  My fellow artists provided variety and the event was free to attend.  Despite all of that, it was a disaster.  To pass the time and to stay awake, I took to posting the following to my personal Facebook feed.  I hope that you find them amusing, as was my intent.

Living Green Expo

I have to say, I'm pretty excited.  I've been invited to be a vendor at the Living Green Expo at the Williamson Country Ag. Center in Franklin, TN.  It's this Saturday from 9:30 am until 3:30 pm.  I really can't think of a better fit for someone like me who reuses and recycles in almost every project that I do than an event centered on greener living!
I was really tickled by the overwhelmingly positive response that I received from the organizers and I really look forward to exploring a new kind of event.  I have to admit though, I'm a little nervous, too.  This is typically not the kind of event that people go to looking for a wacky new lamp or funky, recycled jewelry, so we'll see if the audience is there.

Here are a few news pieces that will be available at the show this weekend:

Boheme Collectif Funky Junk Flea Market

So I've been hearing an approving murmur here and there about a group called Boheme Collectif.  I keep hearing good things about the people in it and the shows and exhibitions they put on, so when I saw that they were putting on their very first craft show, The Funky Junk Flea Market, I jumped on it!  This Saturday, August 18th from 9 am until 2, they'll be holding their first ever art, craft & vintage show at their not-so-secret lair on Gallatin Ave.  If you can make it, you should come by and check it out, if all goes well, they plan to make it a monthly event.  There are more details on the flier below.
