Big Fall Weekend - Happy October!

This weekend marks the beginning of one of my favorite months of the year! October is awesome for so many reasons: warm, sunny days and crisp, cool nights, beautiful fall foliage at its peak in New England, my favorite holiday—Halloween, apple pies, golden sunlight, and all-things-pumpkin just to name a few.

I have a lot of exciting things going on this weekend to mark the start of this glorious month. I hope to see many of your smiling faces!

Apple Harvest Day – Downtown, Dover, NH
Saturday, October 1st
9am - 4pm

Dover's annual Apple Harvest Day event includes 300 crafters and artists, 3 stages worth of all-day entertainment, carnival games, rides, a petting zoo, a green marketplace, and my favorite contradiction of the day: a Healthy Living Expo and delicious-sounding apple pie baking contest. I will be selling handmade jewelry and pet tags in front of one of my favorite establishments in all the land: the Silver Moon Creperie on Third Street (next to the old Strand Theater location). Hopefully they will be sending crepes outside to me all day long at regular intervals (hint, hint Theresa and Chris).

Portsmouth Open Market – Strawbery Banke, Portsmouth, NH
Sunday, October 2nd
10am - 4pm

This coming Sunday marks my final appearance of the year at the Portsmouth Open Market. And what a lovely market it is, with a wide variety of different artisans, designers, cooks, bakers and farmers each Sunday on the historic grounds of Puddle Dock at the Strawbery Banke Museum

I should also mention that I have LOTS of new jewelry for this weekend that is not available online yet. Be the first to get a sneak peek!
