I was at the Clover Market for the first time this past Sunday. Clover Market is a seasonal outdoor market in Ardmore, PA that features an eclectic mix of crafts and vintage items. It was a beautiful sunny day and there was a decent crowd of shoppers. My booth was slightly secluded, but I was still happy because it was right across from the food trucks (which is both wonderful and dangerous). According to some of the other sellers, this particular day was a little slower than usual, but I was still happy with my results at the end of the day.
I really try to avoid buying things at shows that I am selling at, but I did manage to do a little bit shopping throughout the day. I didn't buy much, but here are some of the things that I came home with:

These sellers had so many great designs... you should definitely take some time to check out their etsy shops!
In addition to selling and shopping, these live shows are a great place to catch up with other sellers that I've gotten to know over the years and to meet new people. I've known Renee from Tadpole Creations for some time and she always has great stuff and the most amazing booth set-up (I forgot to get a picture). If you are ever looking for a baby gift, Tadpole Creations is the place to go! On the "meeting new people" side, I got to meet Jane from Wynn Studio who was super sweet and had some really cool art pieces from jewelry, to prints, to awesome painted plywood cut-outs. Her etsy shop is a little empty right now, but you should mark it and check back!
That's all for now. The next show for me is July 13th in Tinicum, PA.
