Local Artists in Texas

Happy Monday All!

How was your Thanksgiving weekend?

It's back to the grind for 3 more weeks 
(until Christmas break, of course)
Let the countdown to Christmas begin!

This weekend, in honor of Local Business Saturday,  Hubs and I checked out the Pop Shop Houston event, where artists from Texas set up local crafts and food. I thought I would share with you my top fav picks!


1. Love Birds Goods features custom cake toppers and artwork, from the adorable artist Molly Clark in Austin, TX

2. How cute are these Buddy the Elf Christmas cards from Caitlin McClain at feb10 designs? Also from ATX, Caitlin designs pillows and custom graphics

3. Tin Roof Soap Company makes handmade soap right here in Houston! They even brew their own coffees and beers to make the scents.

Not from Texas? Check out this website that caters to local slogans at The Social Dept.
Happy Monday All!

Did any of you shop locally this weekend?

Those are the cutest cards! It's great to support local artists.

Ohh, Pop Shop Houston sounds really fun! I love all of these items that you've shown here. Unfortunately I didn't make it out on Saturday, I didn't actually do any shopping this weekend!

love these finds! My hubs and I went to Ten Thousand Villages, which is a chain store, but sells and promotes creative artists from around the world. Have you been there before? I bet you would like it :)
