Markets & Craft Fairs

In 2016, ThePolkadotPosie embarked on a new adventure to bring our products to local craft fairs and markets in the Chicagoland area and we have had such a blast in the process. Since then, we have been a part of many local school craft fairs, Sweet Pickins Markets, Emerson Creek Markets and other great local events. We've made some wonderful friends and customers along the way and while we do hope to be a part of a few events in 2020, weekend shows and travel are becoming a bit more difficult as our kids are older and involved in sports. I want to fully embrace being a Hockey/Soccer/Band mom, and my Mom wants to fully embrace being a Hockey/Soccer/Band/Baseball Nana.

So with that in mind, our focus for 2020 is really going to be on our Etsy shops and blog because while we might not have the time to travel to shows, we will ALWAYS have time to be creative :) So make sure to come back here often and see what we are up to! Once our 2020 shows are decided we will post them here. Stay tuned!


  1. Beautiful work! I, too am a crafter and make 99% of all my items for my Arc, digital designs, hair bows, key fobs, hand stamped products, blankets and soooo much more. I am a direct selling Mama of 4 amazing children , ranging in age from 15-3 years old. I have 1 daughter in the mix with the 3 boys, and she has been my inspiration the whole time. I love my photoshop, but also love my at home boutique just the same. I can be found around the house, in my Shop, behind Photoshop, or even in the livingroom making something for someone. I love the payoff of their faces and how they are warmed by my creations. I came to your blog from Pinterest and Google both... after seeing the color designs of the Arc Printable Calendars. I am a Thirty One consultant , and just got back to Pa from a Retreat in Ohio and need to update my personal calendar to better organize my work vs home lifes. I didnt have the time to sit and create as I have a lot going on from our trip with the children, so I wanted something fun yet that would still pull me in, and your designs did that for me. So from one Crafter and Photoshop worker to another... Thank You for all your hard work and dedication. Without seeing your info, I would still be in a mess .... which is something Im trying hard to come out of! Ha! Take Care! Stacey In Pa!

    1. Thank you for the wonderful message, Stacey!!! Be sure to keep in touch! We crafters and planner lovers have to stick together!
