Highlights from the HandmadeMN Fall Market

Craft show season is upon us!  The HandmadeMN Market is one of my favorite local craft shows.  It is organized by the artisans in the Etsy Team for Minnesota artists. There is always a great variety of items from jewelry to kids’ stuff to wearables and home decor.  I have two new Etsy shops that I discovered this year and wanted to share.

Kibbles ‘N Knits has all sorts of interesting jewelry made out of “unexpected materials.”  If you check out the artist’s blog, she has a great tutorial for making fabric necklaces, but for those of you who are non-crafty (like me!) there are lots of cute items in the shop already made. :)


Mini Journal EarringsI love the mini journal earrings from Wayfaring Art.  Frankly, I love journals of all sorts, and the hand-bound leather journals in this shop are beautiful.  Making them tiny and turning them into earrings? I’m in love.

Highlights from last year’s HandmadeMN Market are here.  You can follow HandmadeMN on Twitter or Facebook to get updates about future events.
