firefly handmade: recap

Warning: LOTS of photos in this post.  Brace yourselves. 

Hey Hey!

Firefly Handmade was such a success and I was in awe the entire weekend of how well done it was all put together. The mood was set by twinkle lights, live music, local eats, and a WIDE variety of quality handmade goods.  There was a row of airstream trailers, food trucks, and vintage trucks turned vendor booth. Vintage blankets and textiles adorned picnic tables and hay bails. Musicians played atop a handsome red flat bed truck. 

Now, here's my booth :)

 I L-O-V-E how it turned out. I totally forgot to bring my camera and honestly it was so busy the ENTIRE time that I am glad I snapped from photos before the market started on my phone! Otherwise, it would not have been documented (yikes!)

I DO apologize for the weird lighting/glare/sun spots. The sun was BRIGHT and because of my (oh, so cute) fence, there are sun "stripes" through most of the photos. 

Really, y'all. Everything was just dreamy. Except for the wind.

This was my booth late afternoon on Saturday. Can you say disaster?

Other than that, it was a wonderful weekend & I'm *SO* looking forward to the next one!



  1. Oh it all looks so fab! Your stall looks so beautiful, love the interesting ways you displayed your wares! And boo to the wind for knocking it over!x

  2. Kim, it is just lovely! The bags are great. I love all the details of your booth (bunting, fence, rug, etc.)

  3. I LOVE THE FENCE! Such a cute idea!

  4. I LOVE how it turned out, Kim! That rug added so much to the space, and made it look so dreamy and quaint. That's so fun that the market was held outside. It looked like a blast! :)

  5. Oh that Colorado wind is really something. We loved having you! Your aesthetic is just spot on!

  11. Hi Kim,
    Congratulations on the success of your booth. It looks great!

    I have been following your blog for about a year now, and really enjoy it. After reading your tweets/posts, I do have a question for you, and am interested in your opinion.

    I am a true believer that there is nothing new under the sun. I believe ideas are always being changed, manipulated and improved upon, and that this is what makes a business successful! I have noticed that from time to time you, along with several other handmade bloggers mention "copycats". I am all for showing respect to a business, don't get me wrong. But, I think that this mentality is sometimes taken too far, and business owners sometimes see resemblance in product as copying their original idea. Where do you draw this line? What do you consider to be a copied idea? One that shouldn't be sold in your shop out of respect for the original idea holder?

    I am interested in a dialogue with you, and mean no disrespect! Just curious.

    Thanks for your time! Looking forward to hearing from you.

  12. oh my gosh, it looks incredible kim!! wow! love the effect of the fence. and that rug is beautiful (anthropologie, i presume). nice work!!

  13. Do you sell those flower necklaces online anywhere?
