There’s no doubt we at Wild Ruffle are head-over-heels wild about Pop Up Market peeps!

And here’s a few of our shining stars you’ll be sure to love:

Scotty Dog Quilts has the cutest prints in town! Liz Adams is bringing you high quality designer fabrics, but you won’t find them in any chain store. This table is a quilters dream! And don’t worry if you aren’t a quilter, she offers small and medium cuts for all sorts of crafts. So, Helllo Pinterest board, you can finally follow through on some of those ‘To Do’ Pins with these adorable fabrics! Scotty Dog Quilts makes it easy by also offering lots of fun sewing projects, vintage inspired stuff, and things for a beginning sewer. Don’t forget to grab any sewing supplies while you’re visiting Liz’s table. She will have extras, like handmade pincushions and needle cards. I’m thinking pillow covers for my teenager with these retro prints… how bout you? What inspires you?Scotty Dog quiltsHeidi Person and her Inwood Designs business is back by popular demand! Her functional-fashion accessories are a favorite to so many in this area and you’ll see why when you stop by her Pop Up Market table on June 14th. Here’s a little more about her in her own words…

A little about the company:
Hi!  I’m Heidi, owner of Inwood Designs.  I’m a Minnesota girl through and through – which means I’m active and social.  I’ve loved fashion ever since I was a little.  Playing dress up meant mixing and matching, trying new things, and breaking the rules.  I’m grown-up now and Inwood Designs is a combination of my passions. 
Like many women, I want to move and look good.  That’s why Inwood Designs’ collection of athletic accessories are girly AND functional.  My headbands are comfortable; they stay put through your hardest workouts.  My gym bags fit easily in a locker but they open w-i-d-e  so all your post-workout primping materials are at hand.  My designs and fabrics constantly change with trend and season so your accessories stand out in a sea of similarity. 

Inwood DesignsWe are so excited that Denise Ohland, a.k.a. The Barnwood Gypsy, is joining us again to show off all of her new pieces. If you haven’t heard… reclaimed wood is HUGE on the Home Decor scene right now and for good reason. How amazing are these reclaimed wood wine holders?! They would be perfect in any dining or bar area. They really do fit into any home decor because they are just so cool. Plus who can argue with having wall art that also organizes your bottles & glasses… double duty! Score!  Denise doesn’t have a website so this is your only chance to grab her goodies. Don’t miss these pieces that you’ll treasure for years.

The Barnwood GypsyEmily Frame is bringing her Sugar Belle Candles to the June 14th event and can’t wait to see you! You’ll enjoy all the hand poured soy candles, wax melts, wooden tealight holders and body/room sprays that are made with love in Emily’s home. Look how cute the little heart is! Emily’s husband even gets into the family business by making the wooden candle holders. Now that’s pretty sweet!

She offers so many scents, I think I counted well over 30! With names like Passion Fruit & Guava, Vanilla Champagne, Creme Brulee, and Coconut Lime Verbena, you might be tempted to even eat them! Check her out online to see all of her products and go back again and again to stay up to date with the Scent of the Month.

Sugar Belle CandlesCynthia Vander Poel with Shopmode loved our event last time, she just had to come back! {We love hearing that!} Like us, she has always dreamed of owning her own shop.  So to do this, Shopmode sells a variety of handmade items from local artists at events like ours and at in-home parties.

She has Aromi perfumes, Abdallah Chocolates, homemade soaps and jewelry. Shopmode also carries nationwide designers, such as Mystree, Buffalo David Bitton, Lamade, Just Tees, Monoreno, as well as new designers such as Mikarose.  You know what’s sweet about Mikarose?  It’s their mission to dress women modestly, yet stylish.  Isn’t that refreshing?  It’s so hard to come by these days.

You will throughly enjoy her hand picked items so be sure to stop by and say HI during the June 14th Pop Up Market!  Cynthia says “I love working with women: styling them, inspiring them and bringing out their best.”ShopmodeWild Ruffle is excited to welcome a new comer to our events, Heather Brandt and her new company, Grammy’s Farm, MN. As always, we love to see small businesses grow and prosper. We feel like when you get to know the person behind the business you enjoy the products they offer so much more. Here is Grammy’s Farm, MN story:

Introduction: Hello! I am Heather Brandt, and I am the sole owner of Grammy’s Farm. I am very new to business. This business just happened out of my love for making things from scratch. At first it started, I needed something to help my children’s skin, but then it was to pay for what I was making. I later realized that I might be able to make money from it.

Inspiration: It healed skin issues that my kids have had for years. Now, it has helped other family members and friends. I LOVE What I do! I have had health related issues – two lung collapses, lung surgery, severe migraines and little by little, I have made things to help and keep me from inhalers and other such things. Around the time of my second lung collapse and lung surgery, I lost my mom who was my best friend. I struggled having moved several times and not developing those great relationships that a person needs to grow, so I needed something to do to remember the good times and forget the really horrible memories. I developed Grammy’s Farm to remember my mom but also to make things that I would have loved to give to her.

 Products: I make many different types of things. I make lotions, soaps, candles, but my newest and greatest invention is a Ant Hill Pack which is for nursing, PMS, Menopause, and Breast Cancer women… All with one issue which is your boobs are killing you! This product was put online April 1st.
Logo: A robin, my mom’s name was Robin, is sitting in a nest with 4 eggs. The nest has the words – truth, love, grace, mercy which support and protect the eggs. Even now after my mom is gone, those words nurture, support and protect us. Truth, Love, Grace, and Mercy are the words that I want to support and nurture this business.

Grammy's FarmWe couldn’t be happier introducing another fabulous home-state small business! EcoPetites

I first heard about L’BRI from my preschool teacher, Tamara Lammers. And now almost 3 years later, I’m excited to announce that she will be educating all of us on June 14th at the Pop Up Market about ALL NATURAL skincare products! The face scrub I quickly sampled on the back of my hand during preschool drop-off made it so babysoft smooth that I’m a true believer these are ligit products.  And the best part is; not one artificial ingredient! Ms. Tamara raves about each and every product L’BRI makes and I have to say… I’m intrigued to try more!

L’BRI PURE n’ NATURAL’s goal is to provide quality, aloe-based skin care, beauty care, and nutritional products at affordable prices, while sharing the joy of a positive and healthy living. Aloe is the first ingredient in all of their skin care, hair and body products, not water like most other skin care on the market. L’BRI uses select natural vitamins, herbs, sea plants and botanicals formulated to heal, nurture and rejuvenate the skin. Their website boasts that you’ll feel good about what you WON’T find in L’BRI skin care. No drying alcohols, no pore-clogging waxes or heavy oils, and no artificial colors. It’s hard to argue with anything all-natural!

Stop by Tamara’s L’BRI Pop Up Market table to put these products to the test.
