Daniel Evans from the Bloomington Clay Studio
If you love ceramics and how different each piece can be then Daniel Evans is a must see at TOMORROW's Bloomington Handmade Market. Each of his pieces shows off his amazing ceramic talents and each one is a work of art in it's own right.
Organic Ceramics makes beautiful porcelain tiles that you can use to decorate any wall, table, or even your back splash. She also makes other things like wind chimes and necklaces out of porcelain.
Bets & Mags and Curly Pigtails
These may be two different companies but they are both run by a mother daughter duo. Under Bets & Mags they create fun imaginary toys for kids to play with as well as baby essentials like blankets and bibs. Don't miss out on their felt food kits and the doctor kit. Both are a must have for any child.
Under Curly Pigtails they create fun play clothes for young children. Mostly little girl dresses that are just too cute to pass up they do offer adorable crocheted hats for boys. All the products are made from organic materials and easy to clean....which is a mom's dream come true.
Just 3 more days till the BHM and we just can't wait for you to be able to see all our vendors! But today we got two vendors but 3 artist to share with you.
This husband and wife team are not only fun people but they make great art. He makes amazing illustrations and she makes amazing jewelry. How could you possibly go wrong with that?! These Bloomington locals always have a fun booth that you just can't miss.
Known for making retro style illustrations Vincent has also broken out into the textile world. Not only does he make amazing illustrations but he also takes those illustrations and has them made into fabrics. Out of these awesome fabrics he makes pillows and coin purses. And don't miss his oh so cute and cuddly illustrated animal pillows.
The Ryder is a staple here in Bloomington and we're super excited to be a part of it this fall!
Our favorite thing about The Ryder: the film series of course!!
Sometimes insurance can be a very scary thing for small businesses, but let us tell you - Shine makes it ALL ok!! McKenzie and Jeremy at Shine are down to earth, fun to work with, and so knowledgeable when it comes to their trade! Not only do the cover BHM - many of our small business friends use Shine as well! As well as independent artists!
Our favorite thing about Shine: Well, we must admit, McKenzie makes a pretty mean cowboy cookie!
Sage's Simple Syrups
For a little something new at the BHM this year we have Sage's Simple Syrups. They are syrups that you can use to liven up any mixed drink (or mocktails) and they are made of all natural ingredients. And as the couple who creates these awesome taste say, " Treat yourself to a simple life and indulge at your leisure."
We are down to the final week before the Bloomington Handmade Market and we still have a few artist to showcase. So stick with us folks and see all our artist have to offer this week. Then don't forget to come check them all out at the Market THIS Saturday, Nov. 8th.
It's getting colder out there and we all could use some amazing hats and mittens. Check out what Eclectic Local has to offer because her hats are so stinkin cute!
The Red Thread Weavings
Using natural fibers and dyes The Red Thread Weavings make amazing woven, crocheted, knitted, sewed (and whatever else you can do with threads) pieces. They have some wonderful scarves and shawls but these pieces really are a thing you have to see in person.
We have such a supportive community here in Bloomington!! Last year Melissa from Infinite Borders Photography volunteered to be our show photographer, and this year she's come on as a sponsor to do the same! She has such a great eye, and a fantastic smile - not to mention the fact she takes amazing photos!
Our favorite thing about Infinite Borders: We Love Melissa's keen eye for style and her openness to work with members of the community! And that family foot picture down there is pretty darn awesome!!
