Fall Market: Interactive Booths!

We are just days away from our Fall Horseshoe Craft & Flea Market happening this Saturday, October 1st at 46th & Tennyson in NW Denver (9am-4pm).  Along with all the wonderful shopping at our 100+ vendors, we'll have some great booths dedicated to creating!  Here's a sneak peek at these great booths that will offer an interactive opportunity for the whole family!

First up, Denver Handmade Alliance and The Makerie are teaming up to bring you an interactive crafty booth where you can bring your own projects and spend some time working on them as you break from shopping.  Also, we'll have a knitter-expert-in-residence while you're here to help you with any of your knitting needs!  You definitely don't want to miss this booth!

The Highland's Mommies Craft & Garden Group will be representing the Highlands neighborhood group with a fun, interactive, and educational booth.  Their booth will be all about their purpose: To provide our community with opportunities to learn, make, and share craft skills.  They will be offering a craft activity with the theme of macrame! There will have a few projects for children and adults to practice the skills of macrame. For kids, we will have a friendship bracelet station. For adults, they will have 3 or 4 different projects to allow for variety within the same skill. There will be a small charge for materials.  Be sure to stop by the Highland's Mommies booth to get your macrame on!

The Other Side Arts (TOSA) will be featuring their Art Outreach Program, which focuses on Art Therapy or art as therapy.  At TOSA's booth they will be making and decorating small origami crowns. They will also be making and decorating artist trading cards.  TOSA will have little grab bags with the materials and instructions for the paper crowns and the trading cards if people would like to take them away. The Other Side Arts (TOSA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to educate, inspire, and empower emerging artists and underserved populations through visual arts programming, artist development opportunities and art therapy.  With locations in Denver and Aurora, TOSA provided services to over 9,500 artists and community members in 2010.

Fall Market Special: THE BOOTH!

We are excited to have The Booth at the Fall Horseshoe Market and for shoppers to take advantage of this unique feature so that you'll have a little memento to take home with you!

So, what is The Booth?

The Booth is not your typical photo booth. It's a self portrait station with a modern twist! Who wants to be crammed into a tiny booth that smells funny? The Booth gives you all the space you need in front of a custom back drop for whatever event you're planning.

The Booth is a high end self portrait station, that adds a fresh new look to the old 'photo booth'.  The charge for a photo at The Booth will only be $1!  Also, The Booth is offering $100 off a Booth Package if you book The Booth while at the market!

Inspiration Monday: Pumpkin!

Happy Monday everyone!  For this Inspiration Monday, we are inspired by the smells and tastes of the Fall that seem to be showing it's face around Denver lately!  We particularly are excited about the abundance of Pumpkin that just always seems to hit the spot.  Pumpkin Lattes, Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Seeds, Jack-O-Lanterns, the list can go on and on.  All together, we are just excited about Pumpkin season and thought we'd share some of our Featured Vendor's pumpkin-esque items!  Enjoy!


Inspiration Monday...silver gray

Having a tough time getting started today...even though it looks like it will be a sunny day, earlier this morning it was a lovely gray that made us want to stay in bed just a little longer. We are loving these crisper mornings with fall in the air! And even though we don't like it getting darker earlier at night--we welcome it because it means it's the season's are changing.

We're inspired by silver gray today. Check out some of our Fall Featured Vendors below. We've got so many great featured vendors this season that we'll be posting a featured vendor every week day up to the market on October 1st! Happy Monday, all.
