You’ve shopped local under the brilliant palms and soft stars of the EDGE District just outside Intermezzo. Beginning December 5, you can do the very same with 6 select local vendors at Royal Palm’s new pop up at 1029 Central Avenue.

The market is a passionate collaboration between several local makers who want to help you shop and support local for the holidays.

Samiha, the metalsmith behind Misomia, is all about jewelry. Her experimental pieces blend the beauty of the natural world with near cosmic patterns. You can get lost in a sea of pendants that make generous use of turquoise, rose and deep purple.

Samiha will be crafting on site at the Royal Palms Makers market. Her work has created a galaxy all its own. You can browse Samiha’s previous work on Instagram.

I love doing markets so much! Seeing kids and adults react to my art and hearing them share their impressions makes my heart so happy. This past weekend a wonderful family came into my tent. They were having great conversations together- Dad was kind of quiet but had a big smile. After the kids and mom moved on to the next tent he picked up these two prints and told me that every night at bedtime he tells the kids that they are his sunshine and they respond that they love him to the moon and back. He felt these prints really captured that special tradition in his family and wanted his kids to have the art. This made my whole day! Come visit me at my upcoming markets and chat with me about art and imagination! this Friday I’ll be at @royalpalmmarket from 6-10! My mom @valerie.pullman will be with me! And this Saturday I’ll be at @localshops1 Shopapalooza from 10:00-8:30 !

Makers create art that brings joy

Evan, the artist behind Fox and Crow Paper Co. wants to make art that brings joy to the world. The illustrations feature mythical, prehistoric and animated creatures that could enliven any office, bedroom or living space.

It’s the kind of transcendent work that speaks to all generations, and, as the artist hopes, infuses all admirers with unabridged joy.

The Burg’s own macramé lady Sadie will bring her Knotted Roots creations to the market, too. Her works are the perfect way to display hanging plants in your home. They’re also fine and expressive way to bring a pop of color and personality with you wherever you go.

Sadie has had a presence at countless markets across Tampa Bay — and the intricacy of her knotted designs have soothed, transfixed and captured the imaginations of hundreds of shoppers in the region.
