Sobo Style October Arts Market

What a beautiful day for the 3rd Sobo Style Arts Market that was held on Saturday, October 16th in Clintonville. 

Thanks to everyone for coming out and supporting our local small businesses.

Halloween Cards constructed of vintage photographs and sewn paper.

A menu of sewing services:  Private Lessons, Sewing Soirees, Classes at Sew to Speak, and custom home decor.

The Ruffle Canvas Tote bag . . . SOLD OUT.  (Eggplant ruffle bag in lower right corner of photo).  This is the fall version of the ruffle bag constructed of heavy canvas, and natural muslin with a burlap ric-rack trim.  Includes a pocket for your cell phone and keys.  Now taking orders!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these decorative pillows.  Natural muslin, burlap, webbing and ruffles.  A little industrial, a little feminine.  Decorating isn't limited to the interior of your home . . . get a custom burlap pillow with your house number and toss on your outdoor bench.  Makes a great house-warming gift!  Now taking orders!

 The shop was just swarming with folks oohing-and-ahhing over the feed sack bags and aprons that Becky and Elaine made.

 . . . and brilliant lamp art by Claudia Curry . . . created from vintage and antique lamp parts and other tidbits like motorcycle gears and such.

Nicolle's history boxes, trays, and wall art were a hit.  So talented!

Cindy, the creator of Cindygert sweater purses and bags.  Impeccable construction and artful design.  We will miss Cindy this next year as she and her family will reside in Germany for a while.  Can't wait to see what she creates while abroad.

Heather Kramb's vintage collage jewelry? Well, who could pass that up? I HAD to snag a beautiful bracelet but only after MUCH debate over which one . . . She has an eye for the exquisite vintage gems and artfully collaborates it with crystals and buttons.

The antique creepy crawlies and animal prints that Mary brought were just perfect for
finishing one's spooky decor.

Thank you, Katie Palmer, for hosting a great event. And thanks to Crissy, Ally, and Lydia for all their help.   Special thanks to Mary Kay for the delightful lunch and ohhhhh-so-good cookies!
