Market Season

We might be smack dab in the middle of summer but for small businesses like mine, it’s also the beginning of holiday market planning! Seriously, the whole “Christmas in July” thing takes on a different meaning when you’re signing up for snowy holiday markets while it’s 80 degrees outside. 

But I’m super pumped to finally say I’ve got the rest of my year’s craft market plans figured out! There are a few more holiday markets I’m still applying for but at the start of the year, the big goal I set for myself was to try doing at least one market a month, and I can officially check that box! 

You can catch me at: 


Friday, Aug. 23, 6 - 9 p.m. | Saturday, Aug. 24, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

RiverCenter | Davenport, IA 

The Pear Fair 

Saturday, Sept. 28, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Will I see you at any of these? Are there any other Midwest craft shows that you love attending every year? I’d love to hear about them! Shoot me a message with any recommendations :) 

Hope to see you at the market!
