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?!)

HMC3 Vendor Spotlight: Doug, Jack & Me

If you are looking for cute paper gifts this holiday you must visit the Doug, Jack & Me booth at the Handmade City Holiday 2011 event! Andie Douglas is the creator behind the clever designs of Doug, Jack & Me. Her funny business cards were a hit at our Spring show and at last year’s holiday event she sold some awesome Christmas cards. We are always excited to see what this chick will bring next.

HMC3 Vendor Spotlight: Dark Highlands

We love these guys, visit their site and you will see why. Not only do they showcase writers and artists from the Midwest but they specialize in horror, dark fantasy, and supernatural fiction! AND to top it off they are all really nice and have a good sense of humor, the kind of kids you wanna hang out with after meeting them and realizing you have much in common. Needless to say Handmade City was thrilled to have them as a part of our Spring 2011 show where they sold DH Books one & two. They have since added book number three and by this comment below we may be in for a treat:

“There’s a 97% chance we’ll have an even newer title to debut at HMC. Our 4th book!” – Brad Ellis, DH Picture Guy

It isn’t for sure but that would be pretty rad right?! In addition to their books DH will also be selling tees, buttons and magnets featuring artwork from the books. Stop by the all black booth on December third and support these guys by picking up their really great reads.
