Market Finds: October 2014

I started a feature last month where I highlight artisan products that I come across in my explorations - my Market Finds.  With the month of October wrapping up and including Fall Festivals, Halloween Parties, and Harvest Parties, I thought these items might inspire you as you wrap up your last of the month festivities and plans.  Read below for more details on these finds and be sure to click the links to discover more about the artisans behind these great products and to see more of their wonderful goods.  Enjoy & Happy Fall Festivities!!

Tuffy Kickshaw's Sweet Covered Corn: Pumpkin Five Spice
This gourmet caramel corn is not like any caramel corn you ever tasted.  Small batches of handmade caramel corn is tossed with other gourmet ingredients to offer a vast array of seasonally inspired flavors.  The Pumpkin 5 Spice flavor is the traditional buttery caramel corn combined with real pumpkin & Chinese Five Spice - a must have at any of your upcoming weekend gatherings, to just have on hand as a go-to munchy, or to take as a hostess gift.  Tuffy Kickshaw is lovingly made in small batches by hand in Colorado.

Waxing Kara: Cinnamon Honey Lollipops
An artist who became a beekeeper to harvest wax for her paintings (read her story HERE), Waxing Kara started harvesting the honey to create wonderful natural products.  One of her creative genius products is something I have never seen before - Honey Lollipops.  Her Cinnamon Honey Lollipops are seasonal in so many ways and are especially good for soothing a scratchy throat or to stir into a cup of hot tea.  Made by hand on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

Amanda Catherine Designs: Fall Pencils
I love pens, pencils, and paper, and so of course, these pencils with fun Fall sayings caught my eye.  I think how sweet it would be to write a note and look down at my pencil to see "Hayrides & Apple Cider" reminding me of the season at hand - so inspiring!  Amanda combines whimsical sayings with fun designs to create all sorts of inspiring pencil sets, prints, and market totes too.  Made by hand in Savannah, Georgia.

Knot and Bow: Chalkboard Style Kraft Paper
As I mentioned above I love paper and this chalkboard style Kraft paper from Knot and Bow most definitely captured my attention!  Made from recycled paper, this black paper can be used to wrap a package, as a table runner, or for wine or cheese pairing events.  Find a white marker and add your words and it becomes a paper chalkboard!  This paper comes in a 15ft x 2ft roll and is made in Brooklyn, NY.
