On the Road - SoWa Winter Market - Boston, MA

During the last weekend in February, I headed to Boston for my third SoWa Winter Market. The space was filled with talented New England designers and vintage vendors. The morning started off with hellos from friends and a unicorn.

Being home bound by the snow this winter has given me more time to create. I brought many new pieces to the market, including vintage magnet necklaces, tin lockets with dioramas, lenticular necklaces, and Cracker Jack pinball necklaces.

There were two very talented sets of hands at SoWa and they belong to Stacey Caplinger and her mom Suellen. This mother/daughter duo have been creating accessories and home decor for Creative Hands Boston since 2012. Suellen uses luxurious yarns in a wide variety of neutral and bold colors to crochet hats, scarves, fingerless gloves, and ear warmers. Her sweet finishing touches like handmade branch buttons and plush pom poms add a special charm to her pieces. Stacey creates one-of-a-kind, decorative wreaths for all seasons using an amazing array of textiles, yarns, dimensional objects, and succulent plants. Each wreath is carefully wrapped in many textured layers and adorned with special items like handmade wool felt flowers, mini pennant banners with sweet messages, and birds' nests hiding vibrant eggs. Stacey is currently working on a new line of baskets made out of t-shirt yarn. Creative Hands Boston's offerings are packed with coziness and handmade love. Visit their Etsy shop and Facebook page to see their entire line and find the perfect treat for yourself or someone else.

I enjoyed sending some fun pieces home with customers and friends this weekend. Dexterity game necklaces, rouge compact lockets, and a bunch of Fun 'n' Games rings left the market with happy gals.
