Craft Show Prep

I've been meaning to do this for awhile, and now that I finally did I thought I'd share it with all of you crafters out there. I've probably got at least 50 craft shows under my belt at this point and finally made a comprehensive list of what to bring. Its in pdf format and has little checkboxes, room for you to fill in your own inventory/merchandise, etc. If I'm missing something major, email me and I'll update it. Enjoy!

Megan Lee Designs News

Here's a little deal to hopefully brighten your most likely super snowy day.

Just a quick note about a couple Megan Lee Designs happenings. My Mid-Winter SALE just began today on Etsy, so hurry on over to pick up some great deals. As a bonus, since you are a mailing list subscriber, or former customer, you get a special offer. Buy 2 get 1 free on ALL (not just sale) merchandise for the month of February. To redeem just write the words BE MINE in the notes to seller section when checking out. The free item will be of equal or lesser value. Its a good deal, so get it while the gettin's good (quantities are limited - amount of free item will be refunded to your paypal account).

Other than that, I have a show this Saturday at the Empty Bottle's Handmade Market from noon-4, for some last minute Valentine's Day shopping. I'll have some sockdogs, some fun new mini-pillows, and a bunch of sale clothing to make room for my Spring line. See details below, or click here to RSVP through facebook. The show's there are fun and low-key - grab a Bloody Mary or some food from Bite and check out goods from 33 local artists.


a unique event to connect the makers of beautiful things to people who appreciate the unique and handmade.
