CIB: Peek Inside the Bag

Can you believe the Cowtown Indie Bazaar is only one week away?  I, for one, can hardly wait.  Today's goody bag sponsors will be our final group of peeks in the bag.  However, come back next week on September 1st for a special edition peek at the filled bags and a review of all our great sponsors.  All of the following sponsors can be found at the Cowtown Indie Bazaar on September 4th.

Jennifer of Blueskysunburn creates amazing mixed media artwork.  She also creates hand painted pendants, earrings, and magnets.  For the goody bags she provided these high quality mini prints, also known as ACEOs or ATCs.

Where Water Comes Down creates handmade cold process soap, body scrub and lip balm.  Nicki sent in these deliciously scented body polish samples.  These smell so good.

These beautiful little tiles were sent in by Tilesmile, and feature a variety of inspiring words.  These would make a lovely decorative addition to a kitchen or bath or a great gift for a loved one.  I love the distressed look and blue-green glaze color.

The Pig and the Peacock make yummy scented bath treats like soaps, lotions, body polishes, bath teas, candles and more.  They sent in a variety of generously sized soap samples for the goody bags.  Not only do these look beautiful, but they smell amazing too.

Briana of Market Zyada provided these greeting cards featuring her photography for the bags.  Both are the perfect way to let someone know you love them and feature an appropriate greeting of love on the inside.

Marge and Skully makes awesome quilts, appliqued canvas bags and other textile goodies.  She made these colorful fabric hot pads for the goody bags.  I adore the swirly freehand quilting.

This beautiful, delicate necklace was made for the goody bags by J Margot using Thai silver charms and silk cord.  Michelle's artisan jewelry is made using high quality materials such as, gemstones, silver, and gold.  Her designs are elegant and often have a meditative Eastern feel.

House of Smash sent in these colorful bomb pins for the goody bags.  Nix creates awesome one-of-a-kind painted bracelets and cuffs from recycled records.  His cuffs come in every color imaginable and a wide variety of unique designs.

Thank you for joining us on this journey through the goody bags.  I hope you enjoyed all the sneak peeks and will join us at the show.  Doors will open at 9am, and the first 50 customers to arrive will receive one of these awesome goody bags packed full of handmade items.

Thank you to:

My husband wants a goodie bag desperately. Unfortunately for him he's considered a vendor since he'll be inside all day working with me. lol
