Pick of the Week: Soft Market


Pick of the Week: Soft Market

This weekend in Montreal is the second ever, Soft Market featuring a bunch of great local artists and artisans. This one is the Spring edition and I will be there as a seller with some of my colorful and cute bath products I’ve been making in the last few months. So if you see me there, come say hi! I am pretty excited to see how the reception is and I loved going to the last one so I am sure it will be a fun day.  Below I thought I’d share what I picked up at the last Soft Market so you can get an idea of what type of things will be there.

soft market (1)One of the  organizers is artist Starchild Stela, who I haven’t shared on the blog in awhile. I picked up the Bitter Feels zine, her Support Cuties sticker pack, a Cat Calls patch, and a Not Your Babe pin. I love the support stickers the most!  soft market (3) soft market (2) soft market (4) soft market (11)Sarah Bourget is someone I always see at craft fairs and have to resist buying everything she has. Her custom stickers and mini prints are a dream.  soft market (7)soft market (8) soft market (9) soft market (6)
The other organizer of the event is Lovestruck Prints who’s pastel stickers are adorable.soft market (5)
Swarm stickers, a zine by Kyoko and the business card of this great poetry maker Hea Ryung. I was so broke when I went I couldn’t buy a cup but I deeply regret it. soft market (12)Lastly SugarBones’ JustGirlyThings zine and matching pin, the artist wasn’t there but it’s in the same vibe so thought I’d share. 

If you are coming on Saturday, I look forward to meeting you and I’m excited to check out all the artists and do some trades to add to my growing zine and huge sticker collection.

February Treasures

I’ve been thinking  that for every Pick of the Week I do with random things I’ve bought recently there is a million stores I’ve found that I’d love to share. My Christmas Gift Lists were also super fun to do as well and there just so many neat things to discover that I may not have the chance to buy and review for you guys (although I wish, but that would also require me to have way more money than I do). So I thought why not do my version called February Treasures and show off random things from Etsy, Society6, Storenvy and elsewhere on the web that I adored during the month.  This is the first post I’ll be doing but look forward to it at the end of every month. The amount of things I choose will be random and I’ll try to have a variety between cute toy/vintage cameras, books, clothing, jewelry, house décor and more! Keep in mind all my Picks of the Week are choose by me and not paid advertisement for any of the stores I mention. I will try and keep it small businesses for most of the items because it’s nice being able to support artists and artisans.
