At the shows, I'll bring handbound journals, prints of my artwork (including tiny prints inside bottlecaps), book plates, mini chapbooks, calendars, cards, games, and quirky collections of small toys in little tins for kids.

Felted wool needle cases like this one are available from ArtyDidact on Etsy
Other items, such as needle cases, little purses and some artwork, will be available only through my Etsy shop. If you live in Minneapolis/St. Paul and wish to pick up your order instead of having it mailed, just use the contact option on Etsy to let me know and we'll make the arrangements (and, of course, I'll refund your shipping charges).

This post with the links to all the above craft shows is also available over in the righthand column under  Various Things, should you want to find it again sometime later.
