Summer Shows and Events - We're Going to the Ren Faire!

We are so excited. Not only did we get into the juried-admission Art Star Craft Bazaar in Philadelphia, we were also accepted into the Virginia Renaissance Faire!

We have wanted to be part of a Ren Faire since the first time Erin and I attended one together, long before Blackbird Pye had been dreamed up. While our current designs are not Ren Faire focused, many of our themes have their origins there.

But this is also a huge impetus to get some new designs finished and ready for both shows. Think Game of Thrones, steampunk, piratey, Elizabethan themes. Ya know, like any other day...

We will be at the Art Star Craft Bazaar for Mother's Day Weekend, May 9-10. It happens at the Penn's Landing Great Plaza, on the Delaware River in the heart of Philadelphia -- an easy day-trip from DC or NYC. There will be hundreds of art and craft makers, and ADMISSION IS FREE! It's a great event to take Mom to and splurge on her.

The Virginia Renaissance Faire is at the Lake Anna Winery in Spotsylvania, Virginia -- an easy drive from DC, Charlottesville, and from pretty much anywhere -- if you'd rather be at a Ren Faire! We will be selling our sandblasted etched glassware, and other relevant gizmos, the last two weekends of the Faire, May 30-31 and June 6-7. Tickets are only $10, with kids 5 and under FREE.

We will have new designs for the Ren Faire, and plan to crowdsoursce for more ideas our first weekend there, bringing the results the next weekend.

So if you can, come all three weekends! We'd love to see you.
