What's Up Wednesday

Welcome to my first "What's Up Wednesday" post!

This week, three of our team members will be selling their handcrafted wares at events in Massachusetts, Missouri, and Wisconsin.  If you're in those areas, take advantage of the opportunity to meet Etsy Trashion Team sellers in person and shop directly.  Don't live there, but you know people who do?  Great - send them this blog post and encourage them to shop local, shop trashion!

Pam of Remaker will be participating in the 14th Annual Amesbury Studio Tour on Saturday, Nov. 13th (10am - 4pm) and Sunday, Nov. 14th (12 - 4pm).  The tour is located at the Amesbury Cultural Center, 36 High St., Upper Millyard, Amesbury, MA 01913

The Amesbury Cultural Council presents the 14th Annual Open Studio Tour.  Local artists &
artisans will open their studios to display and sell their one of a kind work. It's a great opportunity to support your local creative economy and share in Amesbury's rich arts and culture community.  You can also enjoy a variety of performance art & live music during the weekend!

Pam will be presenting many new items crafted from thrifted, found and recycled materials. It's an eclectic collection of funky,
yet useful, mixed media items in small sets, series or one of a kind pieces.  Her work combines thrift finds, repurposed materials, and gemstones with recycled sterling silver, steel, copper and brass to create unique pieces that make life a little more fun!  Imagine the fun you'd have wearing her Miniature Copper Book Pendant  or her Dekt Out Belt Buckle Pink No. 1

Emily of Candy Calamity will be selling at the Green Arts & Crafts Fair at the Garden on Saturday, Nov. 13th and Sunday, Nov. 14th (10am - 5pm both days).  The show will be held at the Missouri Botanical Garden 4344 Shaw Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63110 in the Ridgway Visitor Center, upper level.

The Green Arts & Crafts Fair is a great opportunity to buy unique holiday gifts made from recycled, handcrafted materials. Wrap up in a cashmere shawl, buy soap for a smelly friend, or purchase vintage-style holiday cards for everyone you know! 

Emily will be selling her bracelets and earrings made from candy wrappers, pouches made from fused plastic shopping bags, and christmas ornaments made from old holiday cards.  I'm in love with her Starburst Coin Purse - it's bright as summertime and reminds me that Starburst was my candy of choice at the beach concession stand when I was a kid!

Rachael Brooke of Rachael Brooke Art Jewelry (Hey, that's me!) will be selling at The Crafty Fair on Sunday, Nov. 14th (10am - 4pm).  Madison's freshest indie-artisan show will be held at the Goodman Community Center located at 149 Waubesa St., Madison, WI.

The Crafty Fair features 20 Madison-area artisans selling a variety of handcrafted wares such as: upcycled jewelry and clothes, soaps, crocheted items, and more.  Stop by the Ironworks Cafe before or after the show for delish food and coffee.  It's located inside the Community Center and just next door to the show.

I will be selling my "High-Style/Low-Impact" which I hand-fabricate from repurposed objects and 100% recycled sterling silver wire.  My Vintage Redoux Collection features designs made from vintage, antique or simply second-hand metal objects such as: tea, candy & tobacco tins; aluminum drinkware; and serving trays.  Stop by and get yourself or someone else some perfect holiday accessories like my Vintage Droste Chocolate Tin Earrings.
