Local Roots @Molbak's In Woodinville This Saturday

I’ve been quiet here for a bit. If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you might have seen my posts about our elderly dog Toki being sick and then passing away on August 16th. I’ve tried to write a couple posts about it, but end up in a hot mess of tears. I’ll keep trying because she was great and was a huge part of my life as my sidekick. We received so many kind words and sympathy messages from many of you on IG. It was truly wonderful and a very kind human thing to do. A wholehearted thank you from me to you.

Local Roots - Molbak's Woodinville Washington

While it has been rough on my heart, we are chugging along with holiday preparation. We’ve got a couple new stockists that we’re excited to share about very soon. We’re also diving right into holiday shows starting this weekend, right here in our home town at Molbak’s.

We’re vending at their Local Roots event. There’s all sorts of additional fun things going on at Molbak’s at the same time. A glass pumpkin patch, a donut vendor, a crepe vendor and live music. Molbak’s is fun to walk through to get inspiration for home or garden decor anyways, but Saturday they’re turning it up a notch. Not gonna lie, I’m probably going to go home with a new plant and a belly full of donuts. I am working on my winter bod.

If you’re out and about near the Eastside of Seattle this weekend come say Hi and tell me some pet stories.

Seattle Gift Show

Starts tomorrow! We have a booth that is in the Made in America section (booth #1532). We're green, excited and I'm personally hoping that I got all of our items listed on our line sheet.

This is the first "big" trade show that we've done. AND we're doing it with about a year of being in business under our belt. No time like the present right? 

We're not used to working 9 to 5 hours on a typical day. So it will be nice to have shorter work days for a little bit. :D

We hope everyone in the Seattle area enjoyed the rain today!

Time Has Been Flying By

Well, I've dozed off on blogging again. We've been blessed with busy and fun filled days as of late. Let's back up back to Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco.

Thanks so much to all who came out and visited us! We had such a great time and hope to return to San Francisco for future shows. 

After we made it home we immediately fulfilled some standing wholesale orders. One of which is with a super cute little shop in North Bend, WA called Selah Gifts. Just a block away from Twede's Cafe. Also known as the "Double R Diner".

We also squeezed in a few family days since the kids are still on summer break and we managed to coordinate schedules with John's family and our six kids for a little family trip. 

Today we are preparing for a trade show this weekend as well as working on some custom items that I can't wait to share! More soon!

Crafty Wonderland - THIS WEEKEND!!!

Ack! I'm so excited!!! 6 by 6 Arts will be vending at Crafty Wonderland at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland Oregon this weekend!!!

This is our first out of state show! Seems appropriate since John originally hails from Oregon. 

We'll be in booth #193. Come see us if you are in the Portland area! We will be debuting a few new items as well as bringing our best sellers. 

We're looking forward to the show and hanging out in Portland in the evenings after the show. We will have at least one of our six kids with us. So we're looking for fun kid friendly suggestions for when we're there.  

We hope to see some familiar faces at the show!
