Paint a sign with Verdant Market

Verdant Market is a locally-owned sign making company that takes all the prep work and design angst out of the equation! We’ve all wanted to say we painted that beautiful sign hanging up in our house, but we either (a) ain’t got that kinda time or (b) ain’t got that kinda skill (or [c] ALL OF THE ABOVE).

Kelly at Verdant Market had the idea to take all the guesswork out, and that means you’re left with the FUN and the GREAT SIGN (and an impressive story for all your Pinterest-loving friends).

The SHE Staff went to her shop in Simpsonville to try it out, and we were AMAZED at how easy and fun it was, and how great they turned out:

There will be multiple colors and stains to choose from, and fun stencils for every taste. If you walked into Hobby Lobby, these would cost $20-$30, but you can MAKE YOUR OWN for just $18 at SHE! Come to the CREATE Area on Friday between 4-7pm or on Saturday between 12-4pm to make yours!

Speckled Cakes is an affordable option for that custom cake you’ve been dreaming of!!

Cake baking and decorating has been a hobby of mine for many years. After leaving the corporate world of Accounting behind earlier this year, I decided to turn my hobby into my career.

Making cakes that are delicious and fresh is something I take great pride in. If you can dream the design, I can make it happen. – Amber Twomey, Speckled Cakes

We heard a lot of you say, “Please give us more ART, more UNIQUE GIFTS, more HANDMADE STUFFS, more LOCAL CRAFTY THINGS!” (we’re paraphrasing). So we created the SHE Makers Market, full of local, unique, handmade goods!

We are beyond excited to bring back the SHE Makers Market – a section of SHE devoted entirely to handcrafted goods. Here, you will only find homemade, hand-made, made with love, locally-made, lovingly crafted and beautiful things!

Here are the Makers we have signed up so far:
