Last Show Of The Holiday Season... Jersey Made

Wow, the end of the year has arrived quickly. With less than two weeks to Christmas (and so much shopping still to be done in my house) tomorrow, Sunday December 13th will be my final handmade show of the year.

I will have my sea glass jewelry at the 2nd Annual Holiday Magical Family Event at Historic Smithville Park in Eastampton, NJ. The hours for the show are from 12pm-5pm. My table display will be located in Area 3.

This event was a huge success last year. The crowds came out to enjoy Santa, music, carolers, etc. The event seemed to have plenty of room and vendors, but the show was overwhelmed with visitors. It was literally wall-to-all people and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves (despite longer than expected lines) This is a great event for the entire family (my boys especially liked the reindeer last year) The event is held under huge, heated don't let the weather stop you from enjoying this wonderful holiday experience!

If you can't make it to the show, and don't see what you're looking for in my Etsy shop. I'm also located at the Gold Duster in Barnegat, NJ and my sea glass jewelry has just arrived at a brand new shop... JerseyMade.

JerseyMade is located in the Mill Race shopping village in Mount Holly, NJ.

JerseyMade features many handmade artists/crafters from the Etsy New Jersey street team (EtsyNJ team) I'm very excited to be part of this new venture...the area is beautiful and the village has 15 or so shops. Holly (LeafPile from Etsy) has done a wonderful job creating a warm, inviting shop. Craft classes are already on the schedule and I hope to offer a sea glass/basic wire wrapping class in the future. Kudos also go out to Abbie (AbbieRoad on Etsy) and her husband, Sean for helping Holly create "her look".

Mill Race Village is having an event later tonight to help raise funds for the South Jersey Food Bank... From 6pm-9pm tonight, December 12th, the shops of Mill Race Village will be having a Chocolate Walk... visit each of the shops to pick up free handmade chocolates (a $20 donation get you a box and you are off on a chocolate hunt through the village) The shops will remain open through 9pm for chocolate hunters and holiday shopping... it's a worthy cause and the donations will help out our neighbors in South Jersey that may be struggling during these times.

'til next time....
