Are you looking to update your spring wardrobe? Liza Carlile has just recently launched her clothing line in our store, and it is a must see! Her collection ranges from dresses, skirts and tops as well as unique accessories including jewelry, hair pieces and one of a kind purses. Liza grew up watching her mom sew and went on to make her first dress at age eleven. When asked where her inspiration comes from she responded, "I think that everything we see and learn comes out in our art somewhere." She is also inspired by nature, "plants and trees, fauna and floral of this area." Liza isn't interested in creating clothing based on what the current fad is, rather she intends for her pieces to be timeless and looking beautiful years from now. We absolutely love her feminine, elegant and super unique style and know that you will too!
We are so excited to welcome Joe Clopton to the Made Local Marketplace! Joe has always loved hats and began making them for his one year old son, James. Joe was looking for a stylish and yet kid appropriate hat for James, and realized there was a need for infant sizes. With Joe's hats he has met the need for both style and functionality, each hat is unique in its own design. Once you see these adorable hats, you will be wanting one in your very own size too. The best part is, like many other makers in the store, Joe welcomes custom orders and is willing to partner with clients to meet their needs.

I can't believe it's taken me so long to blog about the Made Local Marketplace because so many interesting things happen every single day! We have new artists, new products and new happy customers. Yesterday, for example, we held our first ever D.I.Y. website bootcamp. It was Rebecca Valentine's great idea put into action. Amos Clifford, Melissa Bushway and I helped eight of our makers or entrepreneurs learn how to use Weebly, a fabulous D.I.Y. website platform. Weebly, which we are using for this website, is easy to use and simple to keep updated yourself. We love it and wanted to share with others. One of our makers, Dorothy (#5), said the bootcamp was worth thousands of dollars to her because now she doesn't need to pay someone to make updates and she has an online store. We love feedback like that :) We like to be useful.
Today is Sunday, the store is closed and I'm off to taste local wines with dear friends and family. It's great to live in wine and food country!
