My mother-in-law and I decided to take on a booth at the Lazy Daisy in Rock Island and as of today we are officially set up! The Lazy Daisy is a collection of booths much like a craft fair. I think there are about 15 booths total and they feature a variety of goods including antiques and handmade goods. You can also find Life is Good clothing and Hape toys. For the next month or so it will be open on Friday and Saturday 10-4:30. As you are driving towards the park the Lazy Daisy is on the right after turning through the Rock Island arch. It’s just past an antique store in the old post office, which is just past Rock Island market.
There is a lot more detail going on than you can see in the group pic. Here’s a close up a silk scarf dyed with beech nuts and roobios tea. The beech nuts gave the overall color and the tea was used to give it a textured look.
We also have lots of old windows that my mother in law repurposes by adding fabric backing, chalkboard paint, and hooks. These would be perfect in kitchen, mudroom, office… ok you could probably find an application for them in almost any room! You can also see a couple of my baby gowns and my sister in laws gorgeous burlap and chevron wreaths.
The Tanzanian bags are all a fundraiser. Proceeds will go to the purchase of milk goats and laying chickens on the Neema House farm. Neema House is an outreach to orphaned children and broken families in Geita, Tanzania, East Africa. You can read more about Neema House here.
So there it is! If you are in the area I hope you’ll stop in and see for yourself. I’ll try to update here as we add new items so stay tuned.
