Craft & Cookie Fairs and Sales

It’s Craft Fair Season- Woohoo!

Holiday time normally cues up Craft Fair Season for us cookie and crafty types. This weekend I’ll be participating in the Lake Katonah Holiday Fair and Bake Sale with my friend, Tamara

Come see us this Saturday at the Lake Katonah Craft Fair!

I LOVE a good craft fair and have been enjoying craft fair season which officially kicked off for us, a few weeks ago in at the Renegade Craft Fair. Here are some photos of the fun and freezing two days we had at the first ever Holiday Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn…

Renegade Craft Fair was held at East River State Park in Brooklyn, NY which is situated on the East River. Beautiful, but chilly in November!

So, whoooo are you? Oh you must be the famed Renegade Craft Owl… Nice to meet you!

Amanda and Tamara worked the table with me on Saturday… Amanda guest baked our “quick bite” cookies with me… Everyone loved her “Love Knot” cookies and her “Best Ever Chocolate Chips”. Tam’s felted wool acorn ornaments were a big hit as well!

This was our original table setup but as things sold, we moved and adjusted the layout

We enjoyed some delicious goodies from Bakeri, right before the Craft Fair opened up- yum!

We were very excited to use our Paypal credit card reader via iphone- our friend Dan was our very first customer to use it!

Of course there was lots of mustache cookie fun…

Speaking of which, our mustache cookies were just in time for “MoVember”!

Woohoo! This little sweetie was very excited to eat his owl cookie while wearing an amazing owl hat!

It was great to meet Adrian of snappylifestyle.com!

We could not help but shop the fair too! Amazing “Slumberjack” pillow purchased by Amanda!

I was so happy that people bought this little candy corn turkey in bunches to put on their Thanksgiving tables! That was my exact intention when I made them!

This was the only area with electricity in the tent so this phone charging situation (invented my Tam) was inevitable!

I was super excited to see our “tree of thanks” overflowing with graditude by the end of the fair!

Read more about the Tree of Thanks here.

Tam took this amazing panoramic shot of the river after sunset… beautiful! but even more chilly once the sun set!

Sweet Collaborations

As we dive head first into the Holiday season, I’m really excited  to be collaborating with some of my favorite artists, bakers and people. With all that has gone on this year, it would be an understatement to say I’ve needed “a little help from my friends”…

Give Thanks this Thanksgiving with our festive goodies!

My friend, Tamara, has been crafting these adorable felted acorn ornaments for the past few years. They are just the sweetest little things- crafty and sophisticated all at once! Last year we were at a craft fair together and hung her acorn ornaments on a tree with my squirrel cookies and a sweet collaboration was born. We will be debuting our “Give Thanks” centerpiece tree at this weekend’s Renegade Craft Fair and we will be selling her acorns on our site. I am super excited about it! What I also love is that the idea of this tree can easily stretch into the Christmas Holidays… (more about this coming soon!)

SDB Collaborate_pink and brown acorns

Tamara created these special edition pink and brown acorns just for Sweet Dani B!

I introduced my “Just Add Milk”line of cookies last year. Its basically a curated collection of my favorite “basic cookie” recipes (but they are so much more than basic!). I’ve been selling them at Craft Fairs and Farmers Markets as a quick bite offering… Many times people want to try a cookie right on the spot, and these cookies are a great alternative to biting into our more detailed decorative cookies that are most often purchased as gifts. I was super excited when my friend, Amanda, agreed to add her 2 most delicious creations to “Just Add Milk”. Her chocolate chip cookies really are the “best ever”!

What is so delicious about these chocolate chips is the gooey center- stop by our table and see for yourself!

SDB Collaborations_Love Knot Cookie

Festive and delicious… Amanda’s Italian love knot cookies are one my all time favorite cookies!

We will be kicking off Craft Fair Season at the Renegade Craft Fair this weekend in Brooklyn! Renegade is one of the most popular craft events in the U.S. and I was honored to be selected as a vendor for this first time ever Holiday Fair. Just in time for Thanksgiving… stop by our table for yummy sweets for your Thanksgiving dessert table, adorable hostess gifts, fun and edible place cards, or just a quick SWEET bite! We hope to see you there!  Xo Dani
