Every year, a craft fair benefiting our local soup kitchen is held at Davis Elementary. Vendors come from all over the area to market their wares to the patrons. My brother and I are also there, camped out and selling our various items. I can’t wait to show off what I’ve made!
First off, I want to give a shout out to Amy Smart at Diary of a Quilter for her easy Fat Quarter tote pattern and Cats on the Homestead for her drawstring backpack pattern. These two patterns make up a good deal of my inventory, using cute patterned fabric for the outer layer. My favorites are usually character patterns. This time, I’ve got My Little Pony, Disney, Avengers, Batman, Doctor Who, and more. These are usually big sellers at all my events.
On the used toy front, I have a variety of vintage and modern My Little Ponies for sale. I have an original Rainbow Dash that I bought specifically because I’ve been asked on several occasions “Do you have Rainbow Dash?” Yes, I do, but I only have one! My Little Ponies have been my biggest sellers so far, and I’m super happy to see people enjoying these old treasures.
On the more practical side, I will have a selection of housewares and warm headbands for all ages made by myself and my mother. Special at this sale will be a hot cocoa set with coasters and a set of salad spoons, perfect for a newlywed gift, first apartment, college student (Just add ramen!), and other special occasions.
I hope you can all come and check it out! It’s a great sale, with lots of great people who come to support our local businesses. Malone comes together to make it work, and I’m so proud to be a part of the effort.
