Hand made in ogden and today's events at 10:34 AM

Did anyone else get to see the movie in the Ogden amphitheater last night? It was fun, and crowded, and loud but mostly fun. The kids ACTUALLY paid attention to the movie ( because it was friggin hilarious!) and at the end they all got up and danced. Have i mentioned lately that i love Ogden? Well, if you haven't gathered that from this blog then ...I LOVE OGDEN!

Today i asked my blogger friend and Ogden local Liv Taylor to do a little guest blog post on finding locally made treasures here in Ogden. Here are her recommendations CHECK IT OUT! You can find her at http://livwrites.com and http://livytay.etsy.com.

Last summer I was extremely pregnant, working full-time and basically just too lazy and tired to visit the Farmer's Market. This summer I'm totally hitting it up. It's just one of the many awesome things about Ogden I have yet to experience and feel like I'm missing! It opens on 25th Street July 9 (Saturdays from 8am-1pm), and you'll find all sorts of vendors ranging from fresh, organic produce to artwork and hand-made jewelry. The Market will run through September, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to browse what the local talent has to offer.

Being a bit of a jewelry maker myself, I'm always looking for supplies that are unique and memorable. I find a lot on Etsy, which is another venue for artisans to sell their wares or simply the supplies needed for your own crafts.

One local Ogden-based Etsy seller, Silver fir farms, Prints has vintage or modern styled prints that can even be personalized for your little one.

There are also a lot of shops in Ogden that sell art/jewelry/accessories on consignment. You can find beautiful pieces Borrowed Earth Emporium (2242 Washington Blvd), Upscale Resale (2262 Washington Blvd) and ume Boutique (186 25th Street). If you'd like to take a drive through the 12th Street canyon, you can also find local painters' art at the Grey Cliff Lodge, where you can grab a bite to eat while nestled into the mountain side.

I'm sure there are other great places to find unique supplies, or ready-made items for yourself and home, and that's where you come in. Where have you found awesome, local talent?
