Holiday 2012 Vendor Feature: TWO FLORIDA GIRLS

Two Florida Girls
shop | facebook

photoWe are two sisters, born and raised in the Sunshine State. We love our God, our family and our home state. 🙂 We hope you find something that makes you smile and think of sun-filled days! Our items are great as fun, affordable gifts for family, friends, kids, coworkers, teachers, coaches…or heck, even yourself!

We opened our shop almost four years ago after Kati (the sewer) made Amy (the computer girl) a coffee cozy for her birthday. Amy said, “I love these! We could sell them!” And the rest, as they say, is history. Since then, we’ve developed new products and have expanded beyond the coffee cozy. In addition to our first item, we now create gadget cozies, bean bags, onesies, shirts, hair clips and headbands. And, see those super cute kitchen towels on the left? That’s our newest product–Florida Love towels! They’ll be making their debut at Sunday’s Homespun Chic Holiday Marketplace! Oh…and you’ll want to stop by and see us Sunday…we’re conjuring up a buy one, get one free on some of our most loved items!

We’ve participated in Homespun Chic Marketplace since the first show in 2010 and we’re now coordinating the event. We’re excited to see you there and look forward to meeting everyone!

What’s your favorite Central Florida attraction/landmark/sight? Disney World! I love how magical it is. It is even better now going there with my children. 🙂

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? Spend time with my family and friends; Spoil my “favorites” (my niece & nephew); Bake; Travel; Train for running races

What’s your favorite Central Florida attraction/landmark/sight? The beach…and more specifically, our family’s beach house! Disney comes in a close second. 🙂

Holiday 2012 Vendor Feature: BOBOS’ BLANKETS

Bobos’ Blankets
shop | facebook

At Bobos’ Blankets, I make handmade quilts, blankets, burp cloths, and bibs.  I also make tote bags and aprons.  I call my two boys my “Big Bobo” and my “Little Bobo” and they LOVE to carry around burp cloths and blankets.  They, plus my mom, aunts, and grandmother, inspired me to create my items and joy to share with others.

Get To Know Joanie of Bobos Blankets

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? When I’m not creating for Bobos’ Blankets, I am a girls volleyball coach. 

What is one of your favorite quotes, song lyrics or Bible verses? There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One is roots; the other, wings. – Hodding Carter

What’s your favorite holiday beverage at Starbucks? (And, are you a fan of the red cups?!)  A venti peppermint mocha, no whip!  And I LOVE the holidays so I don’t mind the red cups.

What’s your favorite Christmas tradition?  We get on our pajamas and make hot cocoa (or chocolate milk) and get in the car and drive all over looking at Christmas lights.  My boys have a hard time falling asleep after that.

SPRING 2012 Vendor Feature: TIKA CONFETTI

Tika Confetti
shop | facebook

Hi! Everything started two years ago when I was pregnant with my first baby. To make things fun and exciting, we decided not to find out the baby’s gender. Everybody was convinced that we were having a baby girl, especially my sister Marta. While waiting for “Veronica,” she decided to start making hairpieces for her new niece. And guess what… in November 2010 we were blessed with the arrival of our baby boy, Adrian! I was very impressed with her hidden talent and that is when I encouraged her to take her hairpieces to the next level. Today, we are Tika Confetti where you will find a variety of unique hairpieces that have been handmade with love for all ages. We hope you enjoy our hairpieces as much as we enjoyed making them for you. We look forward to seeing you at the Homespun Chic Marketplace! Marta & Adania

Get To Know Marta and Adania of Tika Confetti

What’s the #1 played song on your iPod? Adele

What’s your favorite crafting snack? Angie’s Kettle Corn. When we go to Costco, we try to avoid that aisle but it’s impossible, we love it!

What is one of your favorite quotes, song lyrics or Bible verses? Remember the past, plan for the future, but live for today, because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come.

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? Tennis, Baking, Playing with Adrian!
