If you have been following our street team and visited our markets, you may have been wondering where some of your favorite vendors are. Happily we can report that although they can't be with us in person because they have relocated, you can still visit with them through their blogs and purchase their beautiful goods through Etsy.
Leslie of Astorknot has moved to Burford, England and is living as she puts it : "Smack in the middle of England's agricultural green belt." She is starting to settle into a slower paced sustaining life style that includes chickens, bees and sheep. Since arriving in the Cotswolds she's had her eye on a few craft fairs in the region and recently visited the Selvedge fair in London. So if you're in England, look for her booth at the next fair. Leslie is still an avid blogger and shares her and her family's European adventures with us on Crafting A Beautiful Life.
Laura of Fisk and Fern now lives in Austin, Texas and continues to update us on her "silly and strange" print characters with us through her blog and her Etsy shop Fisk and Fern. In Austin she has joined the Artist Screen Printing Co-op, rescued a pug named Salsa, and can be discovered at local retail stores like Blue Genie.
Jen of Peppersprouts moved from Brooklyn to Portland, Maine. You can still hang out with her through her blog Upstate Fancy and listen to some of her favorite holiday songs. And right now she has a great offer at her store for free US Priority shipping until December 19th.
Hoping that this post may inspire you to reconnect with some old friends,
