Phew!! This crazy holiday season is over! (Although I am feeling very confused to have had a Saturday and Sunday off!) From crazy weather and power outages, to life-changing medical issues, to a ridiculous show schedule---I am wiped out!!
Thanks to everyone who went out to the great shows I participated in all of Novemeber and December! You helped keep small, local businesses thriving, and liked getting handmade, intimate, personal gifts for those you loved!! The shows in Cambridge (Designs Hive) and Boston (Prudential Artisan Market) were wonderful experiences, with lots of great vendors to meet and run by great people!!! Customers came out in bad weather, when they could've just gone to the mall--and we appreciate that! I loved meeting people from all over the world, and felt priviledged to make some personalized custom orders for people to give as gifts!
Now, it is time for a revamp and some new products, new displays, even new websites--so stay tuned!!! The New Year is here and it is not called "Cadence INNOVATIVE Designs" for nothing!! Also, check for tons of things listed daily that you may have missed at a show, or feel free to still request custom orders!

Be a fan on facebook or myspace to really get the first scoop on things!!

Thanks, ~Cadence

Prudential Center Artisan Market & Design Hive

Spend your money wisely this Holiday Season by supporting Handmade Artisans instead of Big Box, cookie-cutter gifts! I have been accepted into two great new artisan markets for this season that are sure to bring you the BEST of handmade originality! I am so glad to be a part of them, as I could not bear the catty grandma church and school fairs again! (and I have only done 3 ever!!!!)
Firstly, Saturdays, beginning November 8th til Dec 20th, from 10-5, I will be at Design Hive in Cambridge. Here's a blurb from the site: (
The Design Hive features one-of-a-kind, handmade items including:* clothing (modern and vintage)* handbags and accessories* jewelry* housewares * ceramics, prints, and paper goods* and much more!
Who'll be there? The Design Hive is a rotating collective retail experience featuring different designers every week. Here's a listing of participating designers.
Get your groove on: DJ Hyssop from Dead Language Studio will be spinning a collage of world music and tracks from his new album, Modern Medicine, the first 3 market dates.
Why shop local? It's a great alternative to mass-produced, mass-consumed goods and it's way more hip. Need more reasons?
Cambridge 02138 We've got some of the biggest brains in the planet ... it's time someone shows them how to dress! Plus, it's a great excuse to explore the "Left Bank."
Secondly, I have been accepted into the Prudential Center Artisan Market, where I'll be Sundays beginning Nov.9th til Dec 21st from 12-6. Get some exclusive handmade gifts right along with some from the many other stores in the Mall!
Here's a blurb from their site: (
The Prudential Center Artisan Market will feature one-of-a-kind hand crafted products and designer wares including jewelry, handbags, accessories, sculpture, indie designer clothing, pottery, glass, and home goods of exceptional originality and creativity. Just in time for the holidays, you'll find that perfect gift for someone special that they won't be able to find anywhere else; or maybe, you can sneak in a purchase for yourself as a reward for all that hard holiday shopping. If you're in town for the weekend for a convention or just to explore the city, grab a souvenir for someone back home. The Prudential Center is accompanied by four major Boston hotels – the Sheraton, the Weston, the Marriot and the new Mandarin Oriental – so on your way in or out of your room, stop by for a chance to meet our established artisans who make these exclusive products. Located at the Prudential Center in downtown Boston, the Prudential Center Artisan Market will launch on November 9th through December 21st, 2008. The market will run every Sunday from 12 PM – 6 PM. Admission is free, in a warm convenient location in the most visited mall in the Northeast.

Please come visit!!!!!

Twistfair 2008!!

I totally loved being a vendor at Twistfair-Friday & Saturday Sept 5th & 6th in my very favorite Northampton, MA. Firstly--Northampton is a place I have spent so much time in my life and probably has had a huge influence on who I am today! ( I grew up in Western MA) Secondly, this was the first Twistfair (hopefully of many) and it was so well run, well advertised, and in a fun and amazing atmosphere for meeting other artists, crafters, artisans, and patrons who were very excited to get in and browse and shop! There were lines to get into this place!! It was in the beautiful center for the arts ballroom, had a live dj, great Paper City Brewery beer on tap and Vitamin Water Flavors galore--along with catered meals for vendors thanks to great local restaurants & sponsors like Etsy, Craft Magazine, and local shops like WEBS and Dandie in the Underworld!! The organizers, Lexie & Cory Barnes, along with all the promoters and volunteers should be very proud of how the event turned out! I am very appreciative of all the effort put into making it a success! Definitely NOT your average craft fair--since you may or may not know how fond I am of those!
Also, a big Thank You to Ben & Brian for helping me "man" my table!!!--check out pics in my albums--and go shop or participate next year!!!

A great blog, by the way!

4th of July on the Green Craft Festival--Lebanon, NH

I had the BEST time @ the 4th of July Craft Festival on the Green in Lebanon, NH!! Firstly, it was located on the beautiful town green, complete with live music, a fountain, various food vendors, a dunking booth, and wonderful local residents and their pets !! The organization of the event was simple and as good, if not better, than promised--a rarity in the craft fair world!!! A small gathering of great local crafters displayed their wares while various live music played, a horse drawn carriage took groups around the green, and everyone mingled and ate and had a great time! Towards darkness, the excitement picked up, along with the crowd, and we met some of the nicest people ever! Towards the end of the fair, everyone was called to watch a great fireworks display!! All in all, it was an experience I highly recommend for other crafters, and just for families and people looking for a great place to celebrate the 4th!!! Also, a big shout-out to mother nature for the PERFECT day!!!

Plumberry Lane Gift Baskets!!

Although I have known about Plumberry Lane and their great products for awhile now, I was still pleasantly surprised at what great products they are in person !! I was recently in need of a birthday gift, and had seen that Stacy, Owner of Plumberry Lane, had been creating custom Gift Baskets in the price range of your choice!! I was able to give her a price range, likes/ dislikes of the recipient, and very quickly received an assortment of wonderful, handmade locally, soaps and bath products with a real sense of whimsy and creativity! Everything smelled good enough to eat, and also had great packaging !!! I totally recommend her gift baskets as an indulgent gift for nearly anyone you need to buy for! Both men and women alike were passing it around the table, smelling and noting the attention to detail! Check them out @ , or ! (also on this page in my favorite links section!)
