As I write this post about, well, spring happenings there’s 6 inches of snow on the ground. And it’s still falling.
But spring is coming! I know it. Please let me share with you some of our whereabouts and plans for Circa Dee this spring…
Spring Milk Paint Demo
Sunday, March 23rd @ 1pm
First up, I will be at Serendipity Shops of Doylestown this Sunday afternoon for another FREE Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint demonstration on the products. I’ll answer questions and consult on your specific projects. With our busy spring schedule, I am not sure when the next demo will be so come on out!
First Friday at Serendipity
Friday, April 4th
Wow, we’re celebrating one year at Serendipity Shops of Doylestown already. That time flew by. I am hoping to make it to the bash on first Friday of April. Watch Serendipity’s facebook page for details on what to expect. I hear it is going to be a good time!
Clover Market Opening Day
Chestnut Hill, Sunday, April 13th 10-5
Omigosh, the time is nearly here to kickoff Clover Market season again! The region’s favorite popup market is back and coming in strong with 5 spring markets in 2 locations – Ardmore & Chestnut Hill.
Circa Dee will also be popping up at the Ardmore market on Sunday, May 18th 10-5
West End Garage

We’re settling into our new space at The West End Garage in Cape May with special additions each weekend including live plants and gardening supplies. Thanks so much for the positive response! We are incredibly grateful.
I hope to see you out and about on a warm, sunny day soon!
Clover’s Winter Market on Sunday was a blast! As usual. The market always draws a fun crowd. Now I am dreaming of spring when the outdoor markets return!
Save the dates for Spring Clover Market:
- April 13- Chestnut Hill
- April 27- Ardmore
- May 18- Ardmore
- June 8- Chestnut Hill
As for the Winter Market, I saw a lot of familiar faces and met a handful of new folks as well. Plus, the 23rd Street Armory is such an interesting venue right in the heart of Philadelphia.
I was thrilled to participate as a DIY workshop instructor. I brought a stash of Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint and led an Introduction to Milk Paint workshop.
We had a great time painting these adorable frames and talking about the fundamentals of what makes milk paint unique.
If you want to be notified of any future workshops like these, be sure to comment on this post and I will add your email address to my workshop list. And if you can’t make it out to pick up some milk paint for your project (hello, winter storm alert!), you can always order online right here. We’re expecting a big stash this week to replenish the inventory!
So, did you make it to Clover Market on Sunday…or shopping locally where you are? If so, what treasures did you score?
How much do I love Clover Market?
I can never stay away.
Although Circa Dee will not be present as a vendor at the Winter Market on January 19th, I am excited to tell you that yours truly will be there leading a DIY workshop.
Yep, Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint at Clover Market! You’ve asked for it!
Clover Market hosts just one Winter Market a year. It is located in Philadelphia at the 23rd Street Armory. The Winter Market packs in all of the vintage and handmade goodness that the outdoor markets are known for; plus a ton of other perks including early bird admission, tasty food trucks and DIY workshops.
All of the FAQs can be found on Clover Market’s website.
But I can answer a few regarding the DIY workshop that I’ll be hosting….
Introduction to Milk Paint
Sunday, January 19th – 2:30-3:30 pm
You’ll learn what makes Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint paint unique and how to properly mix it and apply it Experiment on sample boards before you complete your own finished picture frame (your choice of paint color and top coat) and leave with the know-how to tackle larger DIY projects at home – plus a cheat sheet in case you forget! Fee includes all materials and instruction. Just $25
If you’ve been to one of my free hands-off demos but you still haven’t taken the plunge, this just might be the push you need to do-it-yourself! Or perhaps you have been DIYing with milk paint but want to spend an afternoon crafting and shopping with some friends…bring them! Purchase tickets here and check out the other great DIY workshops planned. There will also be a limited amount of milk paint products available for sale.
Hope to see you at Clover Market!
