Welcome! My name is Heather Joy. My passion for being creative began earlier than I can remember. I love all things involved with home decor, vintage, fabric, and paper. Through blogging, I hope to inspire you to craft.
Instead of a Flea Market Finds post today, I'd like to share about Beggars Banquet from this weekend. (I also had zero time to go out to any sales this past week.) Lots of people came out and we had a great time. It was wonderful to connect with many people that I've only chatted with online. It's always hilarious when you meet someone for the "first" time to only discover out that you've been communicating via twitter for a few months now and didn't realize it at first. ;) Can anyone else relate to this?!
Our booth included lots of handmade/reclaimed coffee tables, vintage items, taxidermy, and housewares.
Of course there were loads of really talented artists, designers, and curators.
The venue Union/Pine is amazing. A perfect spot for this event and for a reception/party... it's complete with a disco ball!
Overall, it was a great success and I'll keep you posted for the next Beggars Banquet.
The next event that we'll be vending at is Portland Flea. We are so excited to be able to vend there again and to be a part of this year's first full season/ Mark April 21st on your calendar! But before we get there Chris and I need your help! PDX Picker and Joy of all Crafts are our blog names, however, neither really encapsulates who we are together. For the past few months we've been trying to brainstorm a name for our booth and perhaps future store. We really want to work on develop our brand this year and getting out the word about our handmade/found items. Here is a few of the names we are currently tossing around:
Teak & Rosewood
Which one do you like? Or do you have a suggestions? Leave a comment and let us know either way. I'd really appreciate the help!
Also, have you seen the tumblr Hipster Branding? It's pretty hilarious and spot on. The funny thing is, we like most of these logos and will want something like this for our own name. Does that mean we are hipsters? Hope not!
