Fall Market 2017 // Who You Can Expect To See

WACOTOWN! 

We are making world history by hosting our first ever Fall Market in the backyard of Common Grounds.

On 10/22 (THIS SUNDAY) from 1-5pm, you'll have the shopping opportunity of a lifetime.

We have searched far and wide to find the greatest boutique vendors, and they will not disappoint!  From calligraphy to candles to cupcakes, you won't want to miss out on this opportunity.

At the end of the market, there will be a raffle where you could win a gift basket including one item from each of our vendors. To purchase raffle tickets you can stop by the shop or purchase them at the market. 

See you Sunday!

1. The Deeply Co. 

          The Deeply Co. is an entity that exists to celebrate beauty. Through our intimate gatherings of music + art, online retail space, and blog - the heart of Deeply quickens at every opportunity to revel in loveliness. We value the art of a beautiful life, and we believe that its luster shines not with career titles, roles, or life chapters - but rather that it softly glows within the unending choice to extend love, ever and always, deeply.

 

2. Pure White Jewelry

           Pure White Jewelry is more than an accessory brand. The goal of Pure White is to create wearable and affordable jewelry to encourage women to embrace the identity that God gives them through Jesus. The jewelry, designed by Woodrow, comes in three lines: white pearls to remind women they are pure, rose gold pearls to remind women they were made to shine and black pearls to remind women to be bold in the name of Jesus.

5. Coffee Candles Co. 

         Coffee Candles Co. was created in the winter of 2016 in Waco, TX. We hand pour our fresh organic wax candles into coffee mugs so that even when the end of the wick is burnt and gone, your experience with our product has only just begun. Whether it's infusing your space with unique smells or sipping on hot coffee, we hope to spice up your life one mug at a time.

7. Faith Through Art

           Sarah was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in December 2016. She stayed at home during chemotherapy and enjoyed crafting. She started to create paintings, cards, and other crafts. She then created a Kickstarter campaign to see if her crafts were appealing to others, and they were! She invested in more stamps, cards, and ink. 

          Now, she has completed my chemotherapy treatment, and I want to give back. In August 2017, she will graduate with a degree in Social Entrepreneurship and Nonprofit Marketing and Development from Baylor University. She knew any business she would start would have some sort of social element within it. Therefore, she is donating 20% of my revenue to Leukemia and Lymphoma research!

8. Emberbloom Flower Co.
