Last day of "Love Transforms" Valentines & Wedding Market



Today's the last day for our Valentine's and Wedding Market over at Poppytalk Handmade, "Love Transforms". The market will be open until 9pm (Pacific) if you wish to get in your last purchases from this amazing group of artists/designers that participated this month. It truly was a beautiful market and a big thank you to all who visited us and our vendors. We are honoured to bring the artist and buyer together.

For those of you who are new to visiting here, and to give you a short background. We started the market back in 2007 due to the hours spent sifting through the sea of online shops looking for good, quality handmade items to post about here and be inspired by. Back in 2005 when we started this blog, it was clear these artists needed a voice to be seen and heard and we were madly hunting them down. Thanks to our Etsy Pick of the Day posts we started back then, the whole market idea evolved into what it is today. We noticed many of the picks we were picking were being "sold out" that very day and we then knew we were on to something.

We curate the best of the best of emerging design talent and are proud to bring them here. Each month we host a different themed market to coincide with the different holidays or times of year. With that said we're really looking forward to our next month's market (starting Monday), which is an Affordable Art Market. We hope you'll join us Feburary 16th for the launch! In the meantime, you can visit our new community blog, The Handmade Artist where participants are posting their news, events and musings. Have a fantastic weekend and Valentine's Day!
