I will be out and about this holiday season selling my handmade books at several art markets in Tennessee.
Porter Crossing Arts Market
Saturday, November 12 and Saturday, December 10
Noon - 9 pm
This weekend I'll once again be a part of the Porter Crossing Arts Market, as well as the second Saturday in December. It's taking place in the cluster of buildings right around the Family Wash in East Nashville. My work will be in the Craftville Pop-Up Shop, where you can browse and buy the work of local artists and make an autumn wreath at the DIY station in the back of the shop.
Tony and I stumbled across the first ever Porter Flea just days after moving to Nashville, and I was blown away by the caliber of artists that were participating and how organized the event was. Despite the heat, it was a perfect day for the event, which also featured food trucks, music, and live screen printing demos. I'd been looking forward to their holiday event ever since, and I'm thrilled to announce that I will be a vendor. This time it's taking place indoors at the East Park Community Center. You can find out more about the event on their website, and see work by the participating artists on their facebook page. And the Movable Type Truck will be making an appearance too!
Just one week after the Porter Flea, I'll be heading down to Chattanooga for the first time to sell my handmade books at Chatty Crafty. A few of the vendors who will be at this event were also at the Athens Indie Craftstravaganzaa this spring, including Liz (my college classmate) of Liddabits Design Shop, and Jordan Grace Owens (who designed the awesome poster below). And I'm not the only artist from East Nashville making the trip to Chattanooga. Katie Lynne Vance, Pine Street Makery, and Simon & Ruby will be there as well (and they're all exhibiting at Porter Flea too!).
