AWBU 2014 Handmade Marketplace Preview

If you will be attending Arkansas Women Bloggers University in Rogers, AR next week, you are in for a real treat.  The weekend is going to be jam packed with information, fun, and fabulous relationships.  We are so pleased to be continuing this year with our second annual Handmade Marketplace.  

It’s no secret that ARWB is full of talented and creative individuals and the Handmade Marketplace is your chance to purchase some fabulous items from some of these talented women.  The holidays are not that far off and what better way to celebrate the season than purchasing a locally made item.  You  might even decide to keep the gift for yourself! We won’t blame you and we won’t tell either.

Below is a preview of the types of items you will find in the Marketplace.  Prices will range from $5 to $100.  Most vendors will accept cash and checks and a few will be set up to take credit cards.  Many of our artisans have linked their shops below.  If you are interested in a particular item contact them and let them know.

The market will take place from 4-6 pm on Saturday at AWBU 2014.

Terra Butler – Ahoy Friend

My work walks the line between art and craft. I make mixed media goodness on whatever I can get my hands on- spare wood, windows, mirrors, fabric. I tend towards bright colors, patterns and textures. I use crafting as a starting off point and let it take me where it goes. This year I am excited to bring a collection of hand-coiled bowls and baskets, made with hand torn vintage fabric ribbons. These functional pieces add a bit of color to your space in the form of useful storage. I will have some smaller mixed-media pieces available as well.
