November 7th, 2013
This holiday season, I recommend staying out of the malls and sticking to local shopping of the high-end nature at any of these wonderful artisan fairs around Boston (click for details): The Brookline Marketplace, Saturday November 9th, The Meadowbrook School Holiday Fair in Weston, Saturday November 16, and The Wellesley Marketplace, Saturday, November 23rd! Cheeky Monkey Home will be at all three, and we can’t wait!
This Saturday, November 9th is our first artisan fair (The Brookline Marketplace), and we have been cutting and sewing like crazy to get a nice supply of pillows and floor cushions ready for shoppers. As you can see, I have turned my dining room into a “staging area” so I can be sure my booth set-up works!
These amazing headbands and clips are making their debut for the holidays too!
I wanted to display the pillows in a way that had an interesting, handmade look, and on something that could break down to fit in my car. I was thrilled to find a slew of antique cranberry crates at an old cranberry bog near the Cape that I could stack. I cleaned them up and added some long shelves to divide each layer, and now I have this super inviting (and very low cost) display! What do you think?
In addition to bringing over 40 pillow designs to the shows this month, I am also introducing several new color combinations for some of our most popular designs. We will be debuting our wonderful stacking floor cushions, which are now available in four different designs!
Our classic daisy pillow–new in pink, and our Cape Cod pillow now comes in some really fun new colors! Stop by my booth to see all of the new designs!
