Catshy Crafts Now Sold in Stores....So, There!

I'm so excited to share this bit of good news with you! Catshy Crafts is now being sold in a brick and mortar shop! Yup, I've gone retail!

I had heard about a new shop that was opening from the wonderful Marlo at the Studio of Awesome Pop-Up of Awesome several weeks ago. It turns out that the owner, Alison, saw my stuff at this show and contacted me. I met with her a few weeks later - I kinda had to psyche myself up to meet her - my shyness getting the best of me. But I did. Alison was super-nice and made the process easy as pie. I also loved her cute shop with hardwood floors, bright open windows and mid-century furnishings.

Located in historic downtown Issaquah, So There sells "clever handmade gifts" from local artists. It reminded me a lot of Portland's Crafty Wonderland, which I visited last year.. So much eye candy and wonderful hand-made items - from cards to jewelry to home decor items and other functional crafts - all from local artists including some familiar names like Slide Sideways and kathyoinspirations. I am so happy to be amongst all these lovely items!

Last weekend, I attended the Grand Opening of the shop with my two cutie patooties. I took a few photos of the display, but was kinda distracted by the girls who kept going back for more yummy cookies.

But I have a wreath, some hoop art and felt flowers for sale at the shop. And I plan on bringing more felt flowers next week. So if you're local, I hope you will stop by!

And here a peek at a few of things that caught my eye at the grand opening...

This is a big step for my little business. It was one of my goals for this year. I'm so lucky that this shop opened just 15 minutes from me and that I was able to connect with Alison. And I'm tickled that this sweet new store is my first! Thanks Alison!!!
