The Stockmarket

Dear Friend,

The Stockmarket was beyond words.

I had the best time prepping, setting up, meeting the other vendors, chatting with the patrons, selling my calligraphy, and basically sweating my face off all day. It couldn’t have been better.

The things though that put the day over the top for me were the friends.

My dear friend Hannah gave me her whole day and was the most selfless support I could have asked for. She helped me run errands, build shelves, pack and unpack the car, and really she is what got me through the day. Thank you thank you for your consistent and unwavering friendship!

And the new friends! I was lucky enough to have my little space set up across the way from Jenny of Hip to the Jive, a fabulous vintage boutique. Jenny and her lovely friend Elizabeth were a breath of fresh air and were styled to perfection. Jenny and I have since met up for coffee to share notes on life, love, and business. Here’s to blossoming new friendships with local entrepreneurs!

Overall, one of the best weekends so far this year and I am anxiously counting down the days until the Stockmarket’s return on July 18!

Are you a local maker interested in being a part of the next Stockmarket? Sign up here!

Dear May,

This is going to be a fast and loud month. Oh my word. And there is no time to gear up for it because it’s all here starting tomorrow.

Tomorrow I will be spending the day at a Lovely Letters booth at the Stockmarket!! I will be in downtown Stockton from 11-6, along with other local makers, selling my handmade cards and prints and getting the word out about my love for calligraphy! If anyone is in town or in the area, please drop on by and say hi!

Next up, wedding dresses! It’s happening! My mom is coming to town on her birthday (ideal timing if you ask me) and we will be dress shopping for two days. I can’t wait to share all of the emotions and decision-making tips (if any) from those appointments with you!

Then, we will be having the spiciest engagement party around! It’s a fiesta with mariachi band and sombreros to boot. I mostly can’t wait to walk you through all of the details of prep leading up to the party – the details of making the invites and the decor inspiration and what an incredible mother-in-law I have that she planted cacti with me on Easter Sunday. So many good things to tell!

Anyways, I hope your April was lovely and I would love know what’s in store for you this month!

xx Katie
