Mindy's Minute Market Giveaway




We are two gals with a penchant for finding, making and buying amazing things…that is if we get past the buying part. We are addicted to the latest crafting trends but not to the price tags.  Our quest to bring beauty to all brought us to the realization that bulk is cheaper. We can’t buy bulk on our own. (Our husbands will KILL us!) So, we are trying to make new friends that want to endeavor after the same crafts we do (and others- we are open to YOUR ideas,too!) while we spend less, accrue less and create more! 

We started as a means of bringing foot traffic through a local builder’s model homes. Our area is full of local artisans and vendors that had very limited opportunity to showcase their work. We united the two concepts and Mindy Mae’s Market came to fruition. We’ve enjoyed getting to know vendors and being a part of the “creative crowd” as a business.

We noticed some trends in this crowd. Trend One: We think we can re-create everything. As folks walked around our boutiques and showcases we would hear, “I can do that,” or “I bet I could do that for less money”. Trend Two: It’s rare that we EVER DO those things. Insert here whatever reason that that is: money, time, talent, ability, patterns, etc. Trend Three: When we DO create these things we generally accumulate way more product(s) to justify the expense. We then have to: 1)store these items, 2)give them to every neighbor we know, or 3) attempt to sell them in some other way. This is all because we wanted to save a couple of dollars on an item we wanted in the first place. So now, instead of saving a couple bucks you’ve spent more time, effort and frustration than you ever anticipated –if you even complete the item. This is how Mindy’s Minute Market was born.

We’ve decided to end the madness. We want people to be able to DO things themselves and ONLY as much or as little as they want to. That’s why it’s Mindy’s MINUTE Market. It can go two ways: minute as in small amounts or minute because that’s how long it takes to make a purchase! We follow trends on websites and blogs. Then we’ll take those trends and break them down in to affordable, manageable pieces. MMM will sell those pieces at a sane price and post ideas along with them. OR we will find vendors willing to sell at wholesale prices- or vendors getting out of the "biz" and sell their stuff, too. We want to quit being craft supply hoarders.We want to actually complete the projects we have committed to and we bet you can relate. Think of us providing a public service to all craft supply junkies.Your husbands will thank us!

You can find some awesome deals on things like...

 This useful metal easel for your holiday decor,


Fun, chunky, stretchable rings,  


Plastic flower-ettes for some personalized jewelry, hair pins, or earrings,


And lollipop sticks for all those yummy treats you'll be making for the holidays!
