we did it! we pulled off a last minute handmade gift market at the modern times cafe! it came together despite a job change, a delayed flight from the UK the day before, grading architecture portfolios, late-late-late nights of baking and dying and firing and making, and all the other craziness that swirls around us this time of year. bravo, martha, eireann, cynthia, and julia!
tia setting up her wonderful colors and shapes
eireann‘s festive table (the addition of little lights set the mood)
julia made granola, hot cocoa mix, holiday bread, lip balms, and sewn goods
dylan temte (a modern times cafe co-owner) and his daughter dakota sold colorful drawings
annika kaplan puts together a really great display
cookies, clementines, and three-buck chuck: we know how to throw a party
jewelry artist (and modern times cafe co-owner) emily temte‘s earrings & necklaces
cynthia brought birds and segments, but also made plates, cups, coasters, & necklaces
martha‘s many beautiful scarves
betty jager also puts on an amazing display
about halfway thru, at 7:30pm, i looked around the room and marveled at the crowd and the amazing work (yes, i spent more than i made, which was the plan all along)… and then i looked at my fellow co-organizers and saw the exhaustion on their faces. at least we were equally spent? and despite how tired we were, and how thankful we are to have it done and behind us, i’m sure a message will appear in early november next fall, saying “hey, anyone wanna put together…”
and we’ll probably all say “yes!”.
