Decadence – HMC4 Vendor Spotlight


Only three HMC4 spotlights left and they are all so good! Today’s treasure is Decadence – Recycled. Restyled. Leather jewelry and accessories.We had a chance to see Decadence at WALOC 8 last December and their accessories are just as high quality & gorgeous in person as they look in the photos above. We are super excited to have Andrew Kingsbury, owner/designer of Decadence, and his lovely collection of repurposed jewelry at Handmade City Spring 2012. Just another great reason why you should visit us this Saturday… ya hear?!
Visit the Decadence Etsy shop here, and ‘like’ it out on Facebook too! 

*innad* – HMC4 Vendor Spotlight!

If you thought the awesomeness of our vendor spotlight HMC4 series would soon fade – you were wrong. With only 10 more days until Handmade City 4 we are still posting amazing designers like today’s feature *innad*! Just look at the small selection above, super cool wallets and accessories made in Wisconsin! Trust us, we have seen these in person and they are just as rad as they look in those thumbnails. Definitely swing by the *innad* booth and grab some goodies for yourself and your pals. Any pattern/fabric can be made into bi-fold, checkbook, or passport sizes so if you’d like something in a different style, let Danni know!

Sweet William Handmade – HMC4 Vendor Spotlight!

Oooo eeeee, we love this next spotlight – Sweet William Handmade out of Des Moines Iowa!  Kari Stecher is the designer behind this lovely shop and she sure knows how to make some sweet hand-crocheted jewelry &  accessories. We love her use of color and the photography of her pieces is impressive too. Sweet William Handmade items are all hand-crocheted with care using a wide variety of yarn and thread. Custom colors and sizes are available as well. Swing by Kari’s Etsy shop to see more designs and make sure you “like” her Facebook page too.

HMC3 Vendor Spotlight: Eden Accessories

Our Holiday Event wouldn’t be complete without a couple great accessories booths right? Well one of our favorite accessories shop will be making their second HMC appearance at the upcoming Holiday event. Eden Accessories owner Amanda knows how to design for baby, women & kids. Her lovely hairpieces are colorful, creative and quality made. We happen to think every girl should have one of Eden’s Accessories inside their stocking this Christmas! (hear that Santa?!)
