Summertime Festival Fun

By Blog, Shows No Comments

It’s summertime, which for Elisabethan means it’s time for art fairs & farmers’ markets!

These girls are escaping the heat on a muggy afternoon in Carbondale, CO, during the Mountain Fair by hiding in our rack of 8-Piece skirts. We had rainy weather on Saturday followed by high temperatures on Sunday, which made for a hot and humid afternoon. Fortunately, the grass stayed cool; these girls had the right idea!

Our girls’ dresses are a big hit at fairs. The fun, colorful, soft nature of our clothing lends itself well to kiddo apparel. Kids know a good thing when they feel it. Some folks have been buying Elisabethan girls dresses for years in a row. It’s a summertime ritual to find the Elisabethan booth and buy their dress for the year. This summer we sold so many girls dresses that we needed to make another batch mid-summer.

This family bought an Elisabethan piece for all three kids. They all look great, but the little girl in the dancing bears dress melts our hearts!



Is there a little girl in your life who needs a new girls dress? Shop here 🙂

It doesn’t matter if you’re big or small, summer art fairs & markets are a great way to get out and support local artisans. Many artists travel all over the country during the summer months to sell their wares and share their artwork. Your support helps them keep their small businesses going and keep pursuing their artistic passions.

At Elisabethan we use art markets to reach a broader audience and teach people about eco-fashion. People light up when they realize that their new purchase came from previously loved tee shirts. This unique way of making clothing insures that our clothing is super soft, previously shrunk, one-of-a-kind, and ecologically sustainable.

As our customer, you are helping transform the textile industry -one garment at a time- by supporting handmade eco fashion.

Where can you find Elisabethan next?

Find us at Art in the High Desert in Bend, Oregon, August 23-25,
Crested Butte Art Market in Crested Butte, CO, September 1
and at the Cottonwood Art Festival in Richardson, Texas, October 5-6.

Thanks for all the support this summer – we look forward to seeing you out & about!!
