It’s official!  The 2012 Big Thaw vendors have been announced and listed right here.  Before you get going browsing these talented people while you should be doing real work at your desk (guilty as charged) I’d like to let y’all know that each vendor is featured once on the blog between now and the Big Thaw (Saturday, May 12 – the day before Mother’s Day!)

If you enter your email and click ‘Sign me up!’ at the bar on the right hand side you won’t miss a thing.  We promise to pack the spotlights full of big, beautiful pictures and not too much of the babbling.

Like what you see in the collage above?  The vendors (from left to right, top to bottom) are:    Bowerbird Handmade, Judy B Designs, Kris Johnsen, One Woman Studio, Meagan Anderson, Lilleputt Studio, Makings of Shanna Tice, Lillianka and Lofted Designs.

Get excited, Portland, Spring is coming soon!


The Big Thaw will be held on Saturday, May 12, 2012 from 10am-4pm at the Mayo Street Arts Center at 10 Mayo St. in Portland, ME.  Can’t wait to see you there!  It’s the day before Mother’s Day – hard to forget!

Rustic Love from Little Eye

Last day of January!  Guess it’s time we start rolling out the applications and gearing up for The Big Thaw on Saturday, May 12th from 10am to 4pm.  We’ll be setting up shop at the Mayo Street Arts Center again, and we can’t wait to see you all there!  It’s the day before Mother’s Day, which we think is particularly auspicious.  We’re hoping the flowers will be popping their heads out of the ground by then, and by waiting a bit longer in to May hopefully it won’t be as chilly as last year’s Thaw!  😉

Applications will be up on the website by tomorrow at the latest, and we will be accepting them from February 1st through the 29th.  Yes!
