May Shop Update (finally)

Finally got the shop loaded with new Cotton Monsters!! Hooray!

AND finally sent out an email newsletter! If you are not a subscriber here is a link to the newsletter I sent out today if you are interested to see what it looks like! I just switched over to Mail Chimp, a free email service, as I only send out a few each year. It's been working out great so far..very user friendly and pretty professional looking (i think)! Let me know what you think!

We are officially crossing our fingers for beautiful clear skies this Sunday May 22nd for HANDMADE MART (10am to 5pm) in Silver Spring MD! Check out their lovely online vendor gallery and look for Cotton Monster in booth #24! They are doing daily blog posts with vendor profiles too!

Want to know more? Check out this blub about the fair I copied & pasted from their website!:

The Handmade Mart is an annual, juried, independent craft fair that takes place in Downtown Silver Spring, Maryland. Launched in the spring of 2009, the Handmade Mart has already become a mainstay of the local art scene with 60+ craft vendors selling handmade goods, live music, and hands-on workshops.

Created by Kimberly Dorn (Festival Director of the Crafty Bastards Arts and Crafts Fair and Executive Director of Hello Craft) and Debbie Lee (Founder of Rock n’ Romp and board member of Hello Craft), the Handmade Mart already has a buzz that has brought in top-notch independent crafters and local music favs.

The Handmade Mart takes place along Ellsworth Drive (between Georgia Ave. and Fenton St.), in the heart of the shopping & dining center of the city. With the Silver Spring Metro station close by and tons of free parking in the adjacent garage, this fair is a highly accessible for all to attend.

Supported by Downtown Silver Spring and the Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, the Handmade Mart is proud to the part of the ever-growing Silver Spring arts community.
