Vendor Introduction - Kissyface Kreations

We are excited Kissyface Kreations will be vending at our event!  Kissy Face has super cute hand crocheted items available, check out their story:

Kissyface Kreations came into existence at the same time as my only child and I named the shop after her (because she has the chunkiest, kissiest cheeks!)  I crocheted several hats for her, and many people asked where they could buy one. In the past 1-1/2 years, I have expanded to include headbands, hair clips and other accessories to round out my shop.  I will be selling headbands, clippies, covered diaper wipe cases, and of course crochet hats and scarves.  The items I make are mostly targeted for little ones, but I do have things for teens and adults as well.

 Welcome Kissyface!

Introducing our vendors! Holly Mack Designs!

We are going to start featuring our confirmed crafters!  Welcome our first vendor Holly Mack Designs!

Here's the sweet story of Holly Mack: 
I am a stay at home mom of two girls named Holly and Mackenzie, hence the name Holly Mack Designs.  Feeling a little bored and needing some sort of creative outlet, I decided to take a few jewelry making classes. I was hooked. I fell in love with the whole process. What started out as a hobby, has turned into this obsession.

I enjoy working with lampwork glass, sterling silver, gemstones, pearls, and wire.  I use only the best products.  I take pride in my work, and I have been know to redo a piece several times until it is “perfect.”

Holly Mack is based in Swarthmore, PA and has some gorgeous pieces you can check out at our Dec. 2 event!  Welcome Holly Mack Designs!
