Monday August 1st

How could it already be August?? I have just re-opened the shop! Feels great to see it full again. Most everything you are used to seeing is now available again, and I should start getting some new bags photographed this week. I’ll add them as I can.

I have a lot of ideas and have been working at kind of a funny, sporadic pace. Sometimes I like to sketch a lot – most every bag begins with a sketch, followed by a pattern created by a series of calculations and dimensions. Other times I have a shape, or concept, or a detail in mind, pick a size that seems appropriate at the time, and then just start cutting and sewing. The latter is usually the most fun for me, and often has the most interesting results because the process ends up being more free; but I have also learned the value of taking the time to fully conceptualize an idea before turning it into a 3 dimensional object. I have changed a lot through the years of teaching myself to sew. So much that there are still a couple running jokes around here about the Abby *then* compared to the Abby *now*. Maybe I will share them sometime… you might get a snicker.

Anyway, it is nearing 2am here, and I need to go to bed. Meant to show you lots of pictures this weekend, of beautiful food from the farmers market, and from our garden, but I’ll save that for another time. Nighty night.

The shop will be opening within the next few days, and new work should start appearing soon after, and will continue to over time. I am excited! It seems like it’s been forever.

It’s been interesting allowing myself lots of time and space to go with the natural flow of each day, enjoy the summer weather, get other things in my life done, while also creating a new work flow. It’s hard to do both! And it’s amazing how the days seem to evaporate. They go by way too fast. I think I’m getting the hang of it though, and I am liking the freshness of this change.


I’ll check in here with an update when the shop officially opens. And I’ll probably be here in the meantime too…

meadow + mark

So…. about that fun news I mentioned earlier…

After much debate, over many months, I have decided to open a new shop! Being long time thrift store shoppers, and collectors of all sorts of old and interesting things, the idea of having a shop for some of the vintage treasures we bring home has been something I have had on my mind for a while. Years ago we had an online shop where we sold vintage, though mostly clothing at the time. Due to a couple of moves and a change in our daily flow, we still have a few boxes of things that never made it onto the virtual shelves. Can’t wait to rediscover what’s in there.

I have been filling the shelves of meadow + mark over the last couple days, and once the sun comes out again I’ll be photographing some more things. I’m hoping this shop will be another outlet for me to offer other kinds of handmade items as well. I have some ideas, but we’ll see how it goes.

I hope you enjoy!
