We’re taking a break!

sugar x spice 2019

Summer is wrapping up and the warm days are being replaced by crisp, cool mornings. It’s my favorite time of the year!

It’s also the time where I would normally begin plotting and planning the next Sugar x Spice Holiday market. We locked in 2019’s date last year, immediately after the success of our 2018 market—but after taking some time to consider my schedule and goals for the year, I’ve decided to take a break.

Therefore, we won’t be holding a market in 2019.

I hope to come back refreshed and ready for an even better market in 2020, but the future is uncertain. I’m a one-woman show when it comes to the logistics, planning, decorating, and facilitating—with the help of the BK Bazaar team and my amazing vendors and friends.

It’s more time consuming and exhausting than even I realize since it’s so much fun in the moment. 😉

This year I’ve learned to release some of these dazzling side projects to focus on some core goals. That doesn’t mean Sugar x Spice is gone forever, just that I need to set it aside until I’m able to give it the proper love and attention—and the community—deserves.

In the most immediate sense, I also want to slooow down and focus on enjoying the holiday season with family and loved ones this year. I encourage you to do the same!

It’s such an honor to gather with members of the community in the name of this little passion project, so I do hope we’ll hold one in 2020. Even though Sugar x Spice won’t be blowing up your IG feed with reminders to shop small, do shop small and local this holiday season, when it arrives.

Have an incredible rest of 2019!

This box will be donated to Friends of Materials for the Arts, a NYC-based non-profit that provides FREE art supplies to thousands of creative and educational activities across the five boroughs.

MFTA diverts over 1 million pounds of materials from the landfill each year! Learn more about them at materialsforthearts.org & @materialsforthearts — and consider making a donation on your own if you’re able!
