Hello Wisconsin!


imageWe 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!image

The Crafty Fair

We are done vending at the farmers’ market for the year. There is technically one date left, but friends, it is just too darn cold to be peddling necklaces and artwork on the street. We are taking it inside! You can find The Bookish Life at a few area shows through November. Our first holiday show will be The Crafty Fair on Sunday, November 16 at the Goodman Center in Madison, Wisconsin.


This event is organized by Rosy Hawbaker, AKA Rosymade Designs. She does an amazing job making this a super fun event full of the best assortment of handmade gifts around!

Check out our events page to see where you can find us the rest of the year. Hope to see you at a show! If you can’t make it to one of our events but want to see what fun new things we’ve been making,  you can always visit our etsy shop. We will be adding lots of new items as the holidays approach.
