One of the things I enjoy most about Clover is getting to know the talented and passionate people behind the items featured at the Market. I love playing a small part in supporting their artistic and entrepreneurial ventures, and I know that everyone who comes and shops at Clover does, too.
This fall, I thought it would be fun to put together some Seller Profiles to highlight this amazing group. I've had WAY too much fun reading these over the last few weeks - what an incredible group! The profiles will continue here through the fall so I hope you'll check back in here often. To kick off, I'm very happy to introduce the lovely Lisa Bruemmer from Tree & Kimball.
Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I live in South Philly with my husband and pup, Atlas. I'm an ex-apparel designer for Anthropologie turned Etsy proprietess with a love for all things vintage and delicate. I love riding my bike all about town and wish that it could be summer year-round. I'm addicted to sunshine and cheese.
What will shoppers find in your tent?
They will find my hand-dyed, handmade lace jewelry mixed with Angela's (Greatest Friend) vintage apparel and accessories.
Where do you find your inspiration?
Anywhere and everywhere! My process begins with deciding on a new color palette for each collection - I keep my eyes open in my daily travels and commit to memory the shades that have so impressed me. And so, the lace hand-dyeing begins. It's trial and error, mad scientist style - mixing shades until I like what I see. I also love designing pieces with a certain loved one or friend in mind - it makes the finished product all the more special.
Besides Clover, where is your favorite place to shop for art, antiques, vintage or handmade?
Etsy, of course!
What possession do you most cherish?
A whitewashed cabinet that my grandfather made, now filled to the brim with my craft materials, and my childhood quilt, lovingly made by mother & grandmother.
Where can people find you outside of the Clover Market?
