It's Market Time Again!

With fall just around the corner, I'm getting back into the swing of things again. This weekend I'll be at the Freret Market, from noon - 5pm. This market has become my regular monthly appearance and I love doing it. I love the mix of food, art/craft, and flea market items, and the food vendors are hands-down always the best of any market in town. Plus there's Abita beer! And free live music! And cute puppies and kittens up for adoption! And rollergirls! What more could you ask for? So join me on Saturday; it's always a good time.

Next on my September calendar is the New Orleans Craft Mafia's "Handmade Nation" film screening and indie craft market, on Friday September 18th from 6-9pm. "Handmade Nation" is an indie film about the indie craft movement and the rise of DIY, art, craft and design. I've been hearing and reading about it for years now, and the NOCM has been scheming on ways to bring it here for months. We finally found a generous partner in the Irma Thomas Center for W.I.S.E. (Women In Search of Excellence) Women at Delgado Community College, who is graciously hosting the film screening, craft market, and a Q&A with filmmaker Faythe Levine following the film, in the Lac Maurepas Room in Delgado's Student Life Building. It's gonna be amazing, and we're so happy to be able to co-sponsor this event. For all the details, you can read about it on the New Orleans Craft Mafia's blog.

The next day, I'll be debuting at the Bywater Art Market! After years of being scared I wouldn't be juried into the notoriously selective market, I went ahead and applied and guess what? They accepted me! So I'll be testing it out on the 19th, from 9am - 4pm in Markey Park in the Bywater, Piety at Royal. I'm excited!

There will be lots more on tap for October, so check back in often for updates and more events. Hope to see y'all out and about!
