We have had a busy year creating our handmade bookish goodies of all sorts. As usual, we have particularly enjoyed our Saturdays selling them at the Dane County Farmers’ Market. Autumn is around the corner, and with it comes our last couple of months of farmers’ markets. I can hardly believe how quickly this season has passed!
We hope you are enjoying the last gasp of summer and cherish the beautiful fall days ahead. As we look forward to fall craft shows and the busy holiday season, we would like to take a moment to thank all of our amazing local customers who visit us year after year and make this job so great. Your kind words, encouragement and repeat business is appreciated more than we can express!
We will be down at the market Saturdays through early November and hope you will stop by to visit our booth whether it’s for the first time or the tenth time.
For our bookish friends who are not in the Madison area, please feel free to visit our etsy shop or check our event schedule for more upcoming shows!
Although I have been taking my sweet time, I really have been creating some fun new things over the long winter. Here are a few little collages that I finished recently. These wooden wall plaques combine pieces of book covers combined with snippets of book text. I made a few with hooks this year in case you need a special place to hang your book bag!
I made a some of these last year just before the farmers’ market started and didn’t have time to make more through the season. These are all one of a kind! The pictured plaques along with several others will be available at our farmers’ market booth beginning April 18. Hope to see you there!
We have been keeping busy on Saturdays at the farmers market! We are once again located on State street, in front of the bus shelter near Teddy Wedgers. You can find us every Saturday from around 8-2 as long as the weather is decent. We are working hard to offer lots of new items every week. Thank you to everyone who has already stopped out to say hello or make a purchase this season! We’ve had a great season so far. The weather has been gorgeous, and it’s been wonderful to see so many familiar faces as well as lots of new ones!
Starting Tuesday, June 17, we will also be selling our bookish goodies at our local farmers’ market in Verona Wisconsin. This market is located on Main Street in Verona at Hometown Junction, which is right off of the bike path and just up the block from Millers and Tuvalu. Our market is small, but full of great things! Veggies, eggs, popcorn, and amazing wood-fired pizza made by La Fortuna, to name a few! Stop by on Tuesdays from 4-7 to see our newest creations starting on June 17!
It’s spring, and for us that means it’s time for the Dane County Farmer’s Market! The market is in Madison, Wisconsin, every Saturday from April through November. This will be our 4th year selling our handmade goodies at the market and we are loving it more every year. Here are some photos from last weekend!
This is our display. We are usually located at the top of State Street, in front of the bus shelter.
I kept the kids busy with a photo scavenger hunt. It was so much fun!
We walked around the farmer’s market in the morning and got some tasty treats.
The kids were excited to get their first balloons of the year from Capitol Kids. This is something that always makes them happy. The kids spent some time hanging around the Capitol.
We went inside the Capitol, too, but the observation deck isn’t open for the season yet so we didn’t spend a lot of time there.
It was a wild, busy day downtown! The annual Crazylegs run was happening. Here’s a photo shortly after a giant group started their course.
It was really about the most perfect spring day we could ask for.
I’m so grateful to be able to vend at such an amazing market. All of the art you find here is handmade by the vendor who is selling it. And it’s the nation’s largest producer-only farmers’ market in the country! It doesn’t get much better than that! If you are visiting Madison, please check out this fabulous market and do stop by to say hello!
