THIS SATURDAY (11/28)!
Shop Small + Support Artists and Makers at Crafty Wonderland's November Virtual Market!
Let's see...you've already been doing the following:
It's never a better time to forego shopping at big box stores on Black Friday, and instead you can support your favorite small artists and makers on Saturday during a time where they need all the support and love they can get!
In case you missed October's Virtual Market, you can read more about it, and my latest health update here: https://www.marshmueller.com/blogs/blog/this-saturday-crafty-wonderland-october-virtual-market
How the heck does a virtual market work?
Don't worry, it's not gonna be a long-ass Zoom call! :D Think of it like a more focused shopping experience:
1- Go to Crafty Wonderland's Website and peruse the vendor list.
All my fellow maker and artist friends participating in the November Virtual Market are listed here:
2- Support these creative folks by shopping!
You can click right through on the vendor listing to shop on that artist's website. I'll be offering something super wonderful to enhance the shopping experience, but I'm not going to tell you yet (pro tip: my newsletter subscribers will know the secret ahead of time, so subscribe if you want to be in on it next time)
3- Get on Instagram and support makers and artists as they go live!
Check out the schedule of events here to see who will be going live when and what they'll be sharing on Instagram Live:
I'll be going LIVE on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube at 12pm Pacific on Saturday- we'll go over my studio, and we'll probably make something fun while streaming (I say we because you're totally going to join me, right?).
Many artists and makers are giving back with a charitable donation, as so many people are struggling and need help right now. For this market, I am donating a percentage of my sales to the Astoria Arts and Movement Center. So many businesses are struggling right now, and one industry that has been hit especially hard is the arts and performance arts sector. I'm really excited to be able to send some of my funds their way.
It's been said to begin your holiday shopping early, which is a GREAT idea, as postal rates are temporarily increasing, shipment delays are still occurring, and it's easier on the budget to spread out your holiday shopping over time.
If you have any questions about the show, you can comment below or DM me on Instagram!
Hey there, I'm Holly Marsh (Maker/Illustrator/Mama/Nerd), the force behind MarshMueller. I started the company in 2011 after getting frustrated with the ho-hum options in big box stores when creating my first son's woodland-animal-themed nursery. I hand-pick every fabric, thread color, and zipper, design my own sewing patterns, and moosh them all together to create rad products for parents and gift-givers in my Astoria, Oregon studio (aka MarshMueller Secret Labs).
