Swiss Days

Remember the Swiss Post ‘post’ from last year?  SO stinkin’ fun!

This is the largest craft show in Utah.  80,000 people come from all over to see what is the latest and greatest in the crafting world.

So…I took my camera and asked them to smile!   Each year I go I like to pick out new fun vendors who reek of talent.  Kinda like a treasure hunt!  Please agree with me…if you don’t…just pretend.   Ha.Swiss Days

First up…Hoop-La Earrings.

Mandy, the owner of hooplaearrings was so sweet and cute and makes these earrings.  Head over and read how wonderful they are.  I had a picture of her.  She is super fun, but remember the day HDS crashed?  Yup.  So do we.  It deleted that picture and I can’t find another one.  But, I promise…it’s worth going over to check.  Oh, and look at her display of earring hooks.  Little bit of crafty love right there!  Her colors won me over.  Hello,  color kick!

Second up was Sweet Water Frames. Love the colors, the style and the colors.  Oh wait, I already said that, but I really like them!

These gals were all in this booth sewing and selling at the same time.  They said they sold so much the first day they were going to stay up all night to get more stock.  These are handmade by these ladies.  NOT manufactured.  We got a skirt for my little squirt and she loves it!  It’s long enough and made of high quality.

Now I have to admit…this is the best part.  Eating pancakes the size of your head, snuggling with my little guys during the parade (he was sad his sisters got the parade candy faster than he was able to grab them) and just hanging out with the family.

If you live close…seriously go to Swiss days next year.  It’s over Labor Day weekend and in Midway, Utah.   I’ll be there…

Oh and I saw Becca from Blue Cricket Design and Trendy Ties down there too.

      Sounds like so much fun. I am guessing from the pictures this is an outdoor show. Is it held around the same time every year? I will have to make a plan to attend next year!

        Hi Kate...It was going to be posted in September, but our server crashed and deleted the post and pictures:( (along with the entire site and there was some major fixing). And...then we had to get in Halloween ideas and thanksgiving ideas and Christmas ideas...until finally we could get this post in:) It's so worth going!
