Queen Bee Market

This ain’t yo mama’s craft fair.

The adorable Jess of Allora Handmade

I’ve waited a REALLY LONG TIME to hug Hannah‘s face and I’m so glad I finally did.

I spent about an hour and a half (and sort of a lot of money) at the market, so of course I have pictures of what I bought to share:

Super hero cape from blue. by YeLLoMeDaiSY

Polka dot skirt from Stacy Lynn

I would totally post a picture of me WEARING it…if it fit. I thought it might but I underestimated the size of my hips. I’ll just call it more incentive to lose weight.

That’s actually MY headband, but she makes a better model. Also, I totally forgot which booth I got it from, so if you know tell me and I’ll link to the shop!

Headband from Little Penelope Lane


My new favorite shop, Spiffing Jewelry. This bracelet isn’t up on her site yet – although I think we bugged her enough on Twitter that it will be soon – but in case you need help it says “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good” and is a reference to Harry Potter. Amy and Ashley and I spent a good 20 minutes looking at every single one of her geekery bracelets trying to decide which to buy. I should have bought at least two more, since they aren’t all online and I LOVE them.

I also had a super SUPER crazy run-in with my second grade pen pal at the checkout counter. Not even kidding, we wrote letters when I was 7 or 8 and haven’t seen her since. Facebook helped us recognize each other but how is that for one of those “what a small world!!!” moments?

Loved the whole thing and am thrilled with my new shop discoveries.

    My bank account would be empty, and my head would explode from all that crafty goodness. I LOVE the bracelet! So much fun to meet the people who craft the things you love, too!

    Ooh you took great photos there! I haven’t even really gone through mine yet, but I hope to tonight. Loved QBM & definitely spent more than I planned. oh well!

  3. Also, it looks like it would be really hard NOT to spend a ton of money! It’s like you were walking around inside Etsy!

  4. Why doesn’t she have the capes on her Etsy site?

      I don’t KNOW!! I’m sad she doesn’t, but I bet if you contact her through Etsy she will make you one. Tell her the girl with the ginger babies from Queen Bee sent you :)

    I love that E3 is pushing the pink baby doll stroller wearing his super hero cape!

    Does Caroline keep the headbands on? SOOOOOO cute!

    Yay for geekery! Off to check out the etsy… :)

  7. The QBM was one of my favorite parts of BlogHer! I purchased a ring and a flower for my hair, both of which I got lots of compliments on. I wore them when I met Ricki Lake too! I only had 10 minutes there, which sucked, but was good for my wallet.

    It was like Etsy threw up in a hotel Suite. Amazing.

    I am so insanely jealous that you made it to the market. I desperately wanted to go. Your daughter is precious.
