We are excited to welcome Jessie from Pritzy Pritz to her very first Vintage Charlotte Winter Market. Pritzy Pritz specializes in heirloom quality handmade dolls. Jessie has sent over a sneak peak of some of the products that she will be bringing along with her to market, along with an introduction to the brand:

My name is Jessie and I began drawing patterns for dolls when my oldest daughter, now 13, was a toddler. I couldn’t find any dolls that matched my personal aesthetic or my values, so I began drafting my own. I quickly learned that I was not alone and that others were looking for a quality product that combined nostalgia with modern influence. That was 10 years ago, and they’ve gone through many iterations over the years to arrive at the heirloom- quality product I lovingly make today. Often people are seeking for dolls that represent different cultures or unique characteristics and I love being able to create something that fills that need.

Feedback from previous mentor sessions:

“Your advice and counsel has really stuck with me since our meeting. […] I wouldn’t have pursued this collaborative path if you and I hadn’t talked, and I’m so very grateful. I hope we can have a check-up meeting the next time you offer your mentoring sessions. Thanks again, so much.”

Leading up to the market, we’ll be sharing vendor spotlight posts that give you a chance to meet some of our amazing vendors in advance of the market. We are really excited to welcome Laurie Caffery to her first Vintage Charlotte Summer Market. Laura Caffery creates functional ceramics with whimsical illustrations of home. Here is Laurie with a little about her process and a sneak peak of what she is bringing to market:

I have always planned to be an artist, but as a child I was much more interested in drawing and painting. I took ceramics in high school and enjoyed it very much, but did not see it as a path I was interested in. Freshman year of college I took a beginner wheel throwing class, and although I had worked on the wheel many times before a switch flipped and I was completely hooked. From then on I couldn’t imagine working with any medium other than clay.
My work is inspired by the concepts of finding home and belonging. I explore these themes through narrative and whimsical scenes on functional pottery to elicit the feeling of place. I grew up living in and exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, so my drawings often reference these areas that I am most comfortable in.
My absolute favorite thing about clay is that there is always more to learn. I am learning about new techniques, methods, and materials in ceramics all the time and it is so exciting. It keeps me engaged in the medium as I push my work forward.
