Spring Is In The Air Market in Amsterdam

Spring is in the Air Market - Amsterdam

This weekend I visited the Spring is in the Air Craft Market in Amsterdam. I would have loved to sell there myself, but there wasn't enough time to get everything ready, so I decided to just visit the market, say hi to my crafty friends that were selling there, and look around at all the talent we have in Holland.


I met up with Maartje from Mamutopia, who I might share a stall with next time there is a market. We cute loving Maartje's got to stick together! I bought some nice things from her too! I wish I took some pictures of her or her stall, but I am sure you will be able to see some on her blog soon!


There was so much to see and do, so I kept my camera in my hand at all times. The weather was gorgeous, it was sunny, and a big part of the market was outside, so I got to soak up some sun as well! It was lucky for the people with the outside stalls too, as I believe the inside ones were more expensive, but because of the weather it was a lot more crowded outside! I can see why someone would book an inside stall though, it rains a lot here in Holland!

The pictures in this blogpost are of some of my favorite stalls. There were many more great ones, but don't worry, I took business card from all the nice and cute stalls, so you will surely see some coming by as Cute Craftsters of the Week and Stationery Saturday features.

Me being me, of course I bought some cuteness too! I will save the pictures of my purchases for a later entry though, because believe it or not, I do think there is such thing as a picture overload!
