Our Market Must Haves!

As we mentioned earlier today, we had the privilege to sneek a peek at all of the vendors setting up to partcipate in this years Market, sponsored by the Birmingham Junior League. Not only were we able to get a preview, we were asked to be on the panel and pick out our favorite vendors from the show and give them awards based on what we thought were the absolute “Must Haves” for 2009. So without further ado, here is what we found.
In the Cookbooks and Gourmet Foods Category: 
Sugah Cakes.

Homemade Goodness in Minutes. Cake Mixes and Cupcakes. We were drooling over the Red Velvet, a definite “Must Have.”

In the Children’s Category:

Sew Precious.
Adorable children’s clothing and accessories, but our “Must Have” pick from this booth was the super cute pajama’s with matching bedtime story book. Our cute assistant was tickled pink by “Pinkalicious.”  These were also featured on ABC 33/40.

Clarabelle and the Hen
Whimsical Goods by artist Kathryn Gage. This is a different twist on Monogramming and we absolutely fell in love with her products. Our “Must Have?” These shirts.

From the Apparel and Accessories Category:
It’s easy to shop for the kids, but to find some funky and cool stuff for ourselves?!  There were so many things in this booth I wanted to take home with me or buy for someone I know. It was tough to make this decision on one single “Must Have” so you will have to stop by and see for yourself all of the great offerings from this vendor. TIP  *We heard they sell out fast, so get there early*
In the Gifts Category:

Hedge Farm Candles

When you walk past this booth the smell alone will make you happy. It’s so pleasant and mild. They had so many unique items but ultimately we choose this fleur de lis candle as our “Must Have.”

 From the Holiday and Home Decor Category:
j allen’s Gifts and Interiors
Where do we start? What caught our eye first was the beautiful display of unique Christmas Ornaments. There were fishes and frogs and everything in between. So many cute items, and sock monkey’s galore! We have chosen this adorable Backpack as our “Must Have.”
This vendor also received 4 thumbs up from our little assistants, earning them this year’s Kids Pick. Our little ones had a fit over this entire display and would h
ave stayed there asking questions and admiring everything all night if we wouldn’t have pulled them away!

Congratulations to all of our Picks for 2009! We wish you great success for this year’s show and we hope to see you again soon.
If we’d only had one more award, it would have gone to this t-shirt that says it all:

If you are headed out to The Market tomorrow, make sure to stop by and say hi to all of these vendors and let us know what you would have made your “Must Have.”

Happy Shopping!
