604 Thrift

    Hello, everyone! I’m excited because some of my T-Shirts and Snap Suits are now in a store! The store is called 604 Thrift and it’s right on Congress Street in Downtown Portland.

Here are some photos of the set-up for my stuff!

I’m in the front(ish) of the store next to the cash register!

It’s like I have my own corner of a store!

Close-up!

Snap Suits and T-Shirts are lookin’ good here!

Check out my stuff at 604 Thrift! It’s an awesome store!

More Stuff!

Last night, I wrote about garments that I have been ironing designs onto. Today, I think I will write about the other non-garment things that I sell.

Last week at the Farmer’s Market, the very first thing I sold was a set of Worry Dolls. And so I decided to make more of them for this coming Farmer’s Market. There are 5 dolls in a set and they come with a cute pouch!

They are fun to make and I think they will be quite the popular item. People also bought a few of my fiber jewelry items last week. They’re light-weight, colorful, and really cheery! I make them out of embroidery floss. I have rings, bracelets, anklets and earrings (no picture) for sale.


These are some pictures of one ring that I made. I have several different designs.

What jewelry seller wouldn’t sell bracelets? My bracelets fasten with a button so that it is easier to take on and off by yourself.

Yay for buttons!

I think anklets should be more popular. I make them because I like them and think they’re cool. I jazzed this one up with shell beads!

Looks good!

And what kind of illustration student would I be if I didn’t make magnets with adorable drawings on them?

 

Look for me and my stuff at the Farmer’s Market! See you there!

Selling Stuff at Farmer’s Market and at Festivals

I’m getting into making items of clothing (especially for kids and babies). I then sell them at the Farmer’s Market as well as at Festivals like First Fridays and the upcoming Old Port Festival! It is so much fun to make something that someone can wear or use in some way. It can also be a bit strange to think that people out there that I don’t really know have items made by me but it is exhilarating too! I have just started to sell things and I have been testing the waters so far. But I think I’m learning what people desire so I am trying to expand and make the stuff that people like (but while still being true to myself, of course!).

Last week I had a few T-Shirts but people were asking for kids sizes. (I didn’t have any! Oh!) But! This week I will have plenty of kids sizes for sale! There is also a new design!

In addition to the T-Shirts, I will have new garments for sale such as this snap suit (I only have a few for this week!). Isn’t it adorable?


Baby Pajamas are also a new item. 4 designs, 4 colors available. They are long sleeved and they are (as are all my items) 100% cotton. These pajamas are good for a cooler night or maybe can be put away until Fall rolls around. They are very, very soft!

Anyway, I hope to see lots and lots of people at my table on Saturday! I have a lot of other non-garment things as well!
