South Side Works Exposed Recap

Several of our artist members can often be seen vending at local indie craft fairs and artist markets.  On July 13-15, 2012 several of them vended at the South Side Works Exposed artist market that was sponsored by I Made It! Market and featured over 60 unique artists.

Countless shoppers came over the course of the weekend and we thank each and every one of you!

Following are pictures of our members who were at the market, their booths, and several of their items.  If you see something you like, chances are good it's for sale at the Boutique.  If not, our members always take custom requests.  Please feel free to ask.

First up, several shots of the booth of our founder, Tamara Barker, of Barker's Herbs & Heirlooms:

Next up, Lisa Parker, of On the Rocks Designs.  Unfortunately, she was so busy with customers that I was only able to get one picture of her.  Doesn't she have a fantastic display? 

Marcy Bates, of Recycled Reads, makes fabulous book sculptures and other items out of discarded and unwanted books:

Shelly Picard, of Neighborhood Blonde, makes a wide variety of items from repurposed materials, including the ever popular dishwasher magnets that let everyone in your house know if the dishes are clean or dirty: 

Lucy McClure, of Belmonili, makes a number of items, but the most popular in the boutique are her flowers that feature vintage button centers and jewelry made from bits of repurposed vintage jewelry:

Even a few of our artists that offer their items on consignment in our boutique were there vending.

Nicole Santella, of Concrete Zen:

Amy Garbark, of Garbella:

Chrissie Barcelona of Party, Paper, Scissors (Gillie is pictured here and we hope she'll soon be joining us as well):

Joel Brown of Surreal Banana Peel:

Kathryn Carr, of Go Carr Go:

We hope you enjoyed these pictures of some of our artists and their booth setups and hope you'll stop into the boutique to see these items, and many more, in person soon.
