I love shopping for unique, handcrafted home accessories at craft boutiques. Yesterday I found some fun pieces at the Early Bird Boutique at the Old Meeting House on March 28th and 29th. If you didn't make it, don't worry--here is information about some of my favorite local crafters from the boutique.
POLKA DOT PEARS
Bethany Sorensen, owner of Polka Dot Pears, creates stylish pillow covers that are reminiscent of Pottery Barn. In addition to selling at craft boutiques. she sells her pillow covers on Etsy at http://www.etsy.com/shop/polkadotpears (for free shipping, use coupon code SWISSHIP). I'm a big fan of pillow covers, because they can be easily and inexpensively changed whenever you want to create a new look.
If you are looking for unique, colorful shelves, chalkboards, or coat racks, Lot77 is a great resource. Using recycled fences and pallets, Rick Cox creates pieces that are perfect for a children's room, mud room, or anywhere you want to add a touch of color. Check out his creations at www.lot77.blogspot.com.
My last featured crafter is perfect for you if you like decorating with colorful, cottage-style accessories. Landon Olsen, owner of Color Box Home Decor, constructs wood vases, cakes stands, boxes, and more. I loved his little wood planter--so simple but clever!
