Merchant Soiree

The Merchant Soiree is a traveling art sale based in Southeast Texas. Once a month, local artisans gather to sell handmade, repurposed, or refashioned creations. You can find us at a different location every month.

This months Soiree has become our biggest yet, with over 30 vendors scheduled to show at GoodFellas on Dowlen Rd...........makes me think back to my first Soiree at Chula Vista last year and I think we had around 15 vendors........oh how we have grown. The Soiree gives creative types like myself the chance to show our goods and network with others with the same interests. I have made new friends and contacts that have helped my confidence and boosted my business!!
My first Soiree-Chula Vista
 As well as being the Event Coordinator for Merchant Soiree along with Allison Taylor Reho,  Larena Head is a freelance fashion writer for the Beaumont Enterprise, and creator of Stellar Treasure Jewelry.......a very busy girl whom I admire for her creativity and undaunted passion for the arts in our area.

She and Tricia Samsal are Friends and I enjoy them so much... along with all their creations. It is said that if you have 3 or more pieces of an Artist's Work you are a Collector... guess I qualify with these two then. *winks*

My Grandson set me up by tutoring me to start a Blog and now I'm an addict, I love to Blog and troll the Land Of Blog a little bit each day to get my fix. *LOL* As an Artist it is saturated with inspiration and visuals that speak to my Heart and Soul. I'm adoring your creations... now I shall have to bounce on over to your Etsy and behold more!!!
