Donna’s Crafty Creations was started in November 2006, after I ran out of room for the silk flowers I love to arrange.  I had been encouraged to try my hand at selling my arrangements, so I set up shop at some local church bazaars and started my commercial venture.  The next spring, a few friends and I went together and rented a booth using the name Donna’s Crafty Creations at Third Monday Trade Days.  I’ve been amazed at how much I enjoy the Trade Days experience.  Donna’s Crafty Creations has been in the same location since May 2007, with no real plans to change location (although an air-conditioned mall space is very attractive when the outdoor temperatures reach triple digits).  Merchandise varies slightly from month to month as other craftspeople drop out or join in, but the core merchandise is made by me.  All merchandise must meet my standards or it won’t be displayed.

Current merchandise categories include:
  • silk flower arrangements
  • handcrafted jewelry
  • baby blankets
  • knitted caps and scarves
  • pot holders, pot scrubbers, dischclothes
  • landscape photography
  • Valentine’s bears (February)

If you’re in McKinney, TX, the Friday, Saturday, or Sunday before the third Monday of each month, stop by Third Monday Trade Days and visit my booth at 294 and 295 Pierce Rd.

Here’s the Third Monday Trade Days schedule for the next few months of 2009:
  • April 17, 18, 19
  • May 15, 16, 17
  • June 12. 13, 14
