Horseshoe Market Report!

We had a fantastic time at Horseshoe Market this past Saturday! Many of our favorite local crafters were out selling their wares and there were amazing vintage goods to be found. Some of Denver's fine food carts were serving up delicious treats as well!

Amy is the wonderful woman behind Horseshoe market and she looked super happy and proud on Saturday. She should be - tons of shoppers came out to show their support for over 100 local vendors. Great work, Amy!

Here are a few of our favorite finds:
1) Mukee's new recycled skateboard jewelry raises money for relief efforts in Japan. 2) Graynbow is the newest line by makers extraordinaire, Brett and Crystal, of Vital Industries and Tomte. 3) We are excited about Larka Designs, a new designer of geometric necklaces and screenprinted and embellished pins! 4) Local letterpress Matter was there with some of their paper goods. 5) Alex Watson let us in on his trade secrets for making this amazing pottery! 6) Helliemae, our favorite purveyor of caramel treats was there with her two newest concoctions, jasmine salt caramels and banana pudding with homemade caramel swirl! Delish! 7) Resplendid was there with cute and cozy rag quilts. 8) The Mr. Christmas we know and love from Holiday Handmade was there with his little magical worlds, but this time they were full of springtime-y cuteness with tiny deer and handpainted miniature foxes! 9) The Gold Bug's recycled watch parts jewelry is pretty darn cool. 10)  Hot Butter's handmade wallets are totally functional and we love the patchwork embroidered pouches! 11) Tilly Whistle makes freaking cute little slippers for kids. 12) We cannot even handle how adorable Sister Hipster's new animal portraiture embroidered wall art is.

If you missed it be sure to check out the Summer Horseshoe Market on August 6th and the Fall Market on October 1st!
