We are gearing up at Fraiche this week for the Momtrepreneur’s Market out at Mixson in Park Circle on Thursday night. We are celebrating the many small business owning women in the Charleston and Summerville area. Wine, hors d’oeuvres, mini desserts, and over 15 local female owned and operated vendors selling handmade goods including jewelry, holiday cards and stationary, childrens’ clothing, babywearing gear and home goods, to name a few, this would be a great girl’s night out. This time the market’s theme is Christmas in July, and I am hoping to do a little Christmas shopping (maybe even some shopping for myself?!) while I am there. I am blown away by all the awesome vendors who are coming out and I am proud to be a part of the group. Here’s a little sneak peak of what you can expect from just a few of my favorite vendors:
Dodeline Design – Sarah Reed of Dodeline Design is a master at creating quirky, modern designs for everything from holiday cards to wedding invitation suites to websites. Sarah is my go to gal for invitations – for my clients and for all the parties I host. She also designed the Fraiche website. Oh, and did I mention she designed this adorable Yippee! tape that is on my wish list? So cute! I heard on the Dodeline blog (which you really must check out) that Sarah has designed this year’s holiday cards, and I hope to see some of them at the Momtrepreneur’s Market this week.
Sablee – Monica Jaramilo-Tatis of Sablee is a fantastic pastry chef who will be joining us at the Market. From wedding cakes to mini desserts, Sablee custom designs delicious pastries and chocolaty goodness for each client. Come by the Fraiche booth to see a dessert display by Sablee with some delicious desserts for sale. (Come early, before we gobble them all up!)
Lily Carriers – Looking for the perfect gift for a new mama? Once you swing by our booth for hors d’oeuvres and hellos, Lily Carriers’ booth should be your next stop. Rachael James of Lily Carriers handmakes beautiful ring slings that free up mamas’ hands and makes babies relaxed and happy. Rachael also makes organic cotton play mats, baby cloths and carries raw amber necklaces. Along with being super crafty (and making the best key lime pie ever) she is a wealth of knowledge of all things natural mama – breastfeeding, natural living, attachment parenting, etc. Rachael is also one of the founders/organizers of the Momtrepreneur’s Market.
My Sweet Clementine – A local house cleaning company who provides an all natural cleaning to your home with homemade cleaning products with names like “Happy Lemon Mint Bubbly Scrub Cleaner”.
Lana Bella – Artisnal herbal teas, herbal salves and balmes, cold-pressed soaps, bath teas and soaks, Lana Bella offers a wide variety of handmade products to pamper and soothe your skin. I have my eye on a few soaps with interesting names like Orion the Hunter (sage, juniper and cypress), Blue Moon Beer with Orange, and Karma Soap Dirty Hippie (patchouli, orange, pine, lemongrass, etc).
These are just a few of over 15 vendors who will be joining us at the Momtrepreneur’s Market. Stop by our booth to check out Fraiche’s Cookies and Cocktails Tablescape, gnosh on some delicious charcuterie and desserts and see Dodeline’s stationary and holiday cards. We can’t wait to see you there!
