Inspite of not making profit, I LOVE to trade with other artisans at indie craft shows. It totally defeats the purpose of owning a small business, but who cares. The great thing is that I have a full-time job, so I have the luxury of not making a profit if that’s the way it ends up. At the end of the day we all are in support of each other. Whether I am wearing it or giving it away to a friend as a special gift, I am all about supporting the handmade community.
I made a trade at the Mayday Underground show this past May with Whimsical Wonders. It is a great matching set of silver spoon ring and bracelet. I wear it a few times a week. Best of all, the silver spoons that were repurposed to create this set is from the former Oneida Silver. This is near and dear to my heart because this was a history rich company locally, and I have memories of my mother buying me a spoon ring when I was a young girl.
