i am so tired... tomorrow marks one week left at the day job and then start to my new life. its very exciting and very scarey.

this past weekend i went to the renegade craft Fair in chicago. i was there to sell dearest inez wares and scout consignors for the shop! i stayed with a sweetheart, leigh of rhymes with twee. and we ate lots of good treats. my neighbors were all really sweet.

so yes... really tired. drove a couple hours sunday night and got a hotel in indiana. monday we drove to louisville and i stopped by to look at an apartment and eat dinner with my friend andrew. THEN i drove back to wv. i loved the apartment. it was adorable and is within bike riding distance of the shop. BUT it might not be available when i need it... so.. the search continues. it has been really stressful trying to find a place to live and deal with everythign else. but its going to be awesome. joseph and i are going to work on the shop this weekend. we hope to get the floor painted!

i bought this light for the dressing area, but if it doesnt work out there i can always put it somewhere else. who wouldnt want a tulip over their head while trying on handmade awesomeness???

i also started making my paper mache mannequins tonight.. well. i started the first one. i think the will be cute.

If you are in or near Chicago this weekend you should stop by The Renegade Craft Fair! Dearest Inez will be sharing a booth with Hillary of Bejeezus Zine.

Noon - 10 pm Saturday and Sunday

On Division St. b/w Damen Ave. and Wood St.

Hope to see you there!

we just got home a bit ago from louisville. joseph and i went down to work on the store all weekend and we are worn out. it has been and will be a lot of hard work, but i really cant wait to get started. i dont really have any pics to show, but we did a lot of prep things that will make next weekend a lot easier on joseph. he is going down to work on the place while i am in chicago for the renegade craft fair. i put craft paper over the windows and made a little sign that said "The Makery coming soon!" it made me really proud. i should have photographed it. darn. anyway... lots to do this week. its going to be a really tough week. i have so much to get ready for renegade AND i have a billion things to do for the store. joseph has been really amazing helping me out with everything. i am a lucky gal.

ah yes. and if you are interested in consigning with The Makery please e-mail me at melissa@ilovethemakery.com.


this will be on my sign when it is finished!
I am driving down to Louisville this morning to get the keys to the future home of The Makery.

I made a flickr page so I can record the progress of the place. It doesn't look very exciting right now... but it really looks amazing in my head!

I hope you are considering consigning with the shop! E-mail me at melissa@ilovethemakery.com if you are interested.
I have so many things that I would like to carry that I have yet to receive a single inquiry about ( clothing, handbound books, etc...) so please don't be shy!

I will be out of touch today for the most part.
