More Melinda Mae @ Modern Mouse!

This weekend, I made another delivery at Modern Mouse (2228 South Shore Center, Alameda CA 94501) in Alameda. I always love going to Modern Mouse because Eleen, the owner, is so friendly! And Eleen always updates the shop with new products from fantastic Bay Area designers. So usually I show up with a bag full of Melinda Mae handbags and I’ll leave with a beautifully wrapped Modern Mouse product. =)

Here are the new Melinda Mae handbags that are now available at Modern Mouse!

More Melinda Mae Baby Bags

A few months ago, I blogged about the new Melinda Mae Baby Bags and it has been really exciting to see the different patterns and colors that each individual has been ordering. The Melinda Mae Baby Bags are made by custom order only so the customer can pick the main fabric and the contrasting fabrics. Here are some new Melinda Mae Baby Bags that I just made.

Good times at Market SF!

This past Saturday was my first time selling at Market SF in San Francisco. I traveled to the Mission district in SF at 10am and walked to the Blue Macaw Bar.

The Blue Macaw

I set up my booth and look at my view!

Look at the view...drink specials! ha

Inside Market SF

I brought many clutches and wristlets to sell and even brought some sale clutches.  I was able to spend some time chatting it up with a lot of the other vendors who were all really friendly. I was happy to be indoors the entire time as it felt pretty cold outside. A lot of folks brought their kids and/or dogs so it was a great day for people watching.

The dangerous part about selling at independent designer shows is that I always want to buy! There were a lot of jewelry vendors and I picked up these beautiful lace earrings from Leyna Lightman Designs. The lace is from Turkey!

I also picked up a very beautiful necklace from The Trinkets. Here are some great friends that stopped by the show! They even modeled a new clutch! =)

And after the show, we treated ourselves to some delicious Mexican food at Taqueria Cancun! It’s always great to end the day with carne asada nachos! If only the taqueria had carne asada fries…sigh…one day…

It was a great day in SF and hopefully, I’ll spend another day at Market SF again soon! =)

Melinda Mae @ Market SF this Saturday!

This summer has been filled with weddings, birthdays, babies being born and lots of family time. It’s been a lot of fun but it’s time to get back to work! I will be selling this Saturday, August 14th, at Market SF at the Blue Macaw Bar (2565 Mission St., SF). There will be many other local designers selling and since it’s at a bar, there will be drink specials!  The Market SF runs from noon to 6pm so stop by if you can. I will be bringing some clutches, wristlets and taking custom orders. Hope to see you there!
