And the ultimate last minute go-to hostess or Christmas gift is my personal favorite to give and receive: WINE.  With an ornament ($6), cookie cutter ($6), or tea towel ($18) tied on in festive ribbon.

Merry Christmas from Maiden South, y’all!

2014 Due South Makers Market

Happy Monday!

As I reminded y’all on Friday, Saturday was Due South in Thomasville, Georgia.

Thomasville Center for the Arts Due South Fest 2014

It was such an epic day I’m going to have to split it into two posts!  Today is Part 1: the Makers Market.  We were there to set up bright and early, and the Market opened around 11.  I was working the booth for the Refinery, and we had a great day!  I was also thrilled to have lots of good friends there selling their handmade wares, and was fortunate enough to make some really great new friends, too.  This isn’t a comprehensive list of vendors (you can find that here) but it is a collection of scenes from my favorites.

Scroll on through, wish you had come, and click on over to see what all these awesome folks are doing around our area.

Luckily, the Makers Market was just outside the gates of Due South, so we got to enjoy the live music all day while people shopped with us.  It was such an awesome event, and I so appreciated the focus on high quality, hand made, locally made goods from around the region.  I loved getting to spend the day with my maker friends, and I’m so pleased to report that I made a few new ones.  Keep an eye out for them on O&P!

And doesn’t that necklace at the Thomasville Townie Company Store look familiar?  ;)  I made those especially for the Townie!

When the Makers Market shut down, we freshened up and rallied the troops for the main event… which I’ll cover tomorrow! ;)

Until Next Time
