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!

Our items are great as fun, affordable gifts for family, friends, kids, coworkers, teachers, coaches…or heck, even yourself!

We opened our shop a little more than three 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 and hair clips. And, see that adorable little blond up there? She’s sporting one of our newest products–messy ruffle headbands!

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

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!

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”  2 Corinthians 4:16-18

What’s something you’ve done that you think no other vendor has done? Caught lobsters and then grilled them on the boat in the Bahamas. The best (and freshest) lobster I’ve ever had!

SPRING 2012 Vendor Feature: FEATHERHEAD

Featherhead
shop | facebook

I fell in love with feathers a few years ago, and have kept the romance going ever since.  I never intended to start a little business of designing hair accessories, but I am so happy that my original “Hey, I think I can make that” thought has brought me here.   My goal has always been to create amazing, beautiful and unique accessories and wedding veils that don’t break the bank.   I believe that just because it is beautiful or well-made doesn’t mean it has to be expensive.

Get To Know Kate of Featherhead

What’s the #1 played song on your iPod? I don’t have an iPod (shocking!) but I do have iTunes and right now my number one most played song is a song called Nina by a French Band Presque Oui

What’s your favorite crafting snack? Is wine a snack?

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? Walk on the great Florida trails with my dachshund, Giglio

What are you most looking forward to about the Spring Homespun Chic Marketplace? Meeting the other vendors and introducing myself to this amazing community of artists. (oops, that’s two things)

What’s the last great movie you saw? Book you read? The Artist, twice.  So. Good.

What’s your favorite Central Florida Food Truck? All of them…..nom nom

SPRING 2012 Vendor Feature: CANDYLAND BOWTIQUE

Candyland Bowtique
shop | facebook

In 2009, God entrusted another precious child to me,  my daughter. I was thrown into a world of dresses, tights, pink things and BOWS! Candyland Bowtique grew out of my need to find something unique for my little girl to wear in her hair, not just a store-bought bow. It awakened the part of me I had somewhat lost during everyday motherhood. In August of 2009, Candyland Bowtique was born. Not only do I make your traditional bows, I specialize in creating sculpted bows. I think every little girl should be able to pick something fun and beautiful to put in their hair.

Get To Know Candy of Candyland Bowtique

What’s the #1 played song on your iPod? Book of Love by Peter Gabriel!  I was introduced to this song when the finale of Scrubs aired.  I listened to it every night while I fed my daughter at 2am and have loved it ever since.

What is one of your favorite quotes, song lyrics or Bible verses? One of my favorite passages in the Bible is about the Proverbs 31 Woman.  I have always called her Ruby.  It ties in 10 virtues: faith, marriage, mothering, health, service, finances, industry, time and beauty. Some days, I feel as if I strike out on all of them.  Other days, I see it as an attainable goal!

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? I would love to learn to play the piano. Something past that little ditty you can play with your knuckles.

What’s your favorite Central Florida attraction/landmark/sight?  I would be lying if I didn’t say Disney.  I consider myself lucky to live so close to such a fun place.  Experiencing it through the eyes of my kids is amazing. It’s not always my kids racing to get in the lines. And now I cannot get the picture of Clark Griswold running to Wally World out of my head.

What are you most looking forward to about this spring’s Homespun Chic Marketplace?  Meeting the other vendors who are in the same realm as I am, stretched thin but loving it.  I also cannot wait to see some of my regular customers and meet new ones!

Dress It Up Boutique
shop | facebook

My name is Eve. I have always been crafty, creating beauty with found pieces of fabric, accenting items with ribbons and buttons. Realizing I could highlight any outfit with custom hair accessories, I began making items for myself, friends, and family. Soon, people requested custom headbands for special events. Dress It Up Boutique was launched. Dress It Up Boutique provides unique designs for newborns to adults, helping to dress up every moment of the day, from casual happenings to formal occasions. Our hair bows and headbands are hand-crafted and sewn with quality grosgrain ribbon. All ends are heat-sealed to prevent fraying. Dress It Up Boutique custom designs items for special requests, believing every moment is a moment to celebrate. Dress it up!
