Swiss Days (insert yodel here!)

Well I did it! After 4 years of living in Utah I finally made it out to Swiss Days! Picture a boutique on steroids! This classic Utah event is held over Labor Day Weekend in the beautiful mountain town of Midway, which is by the way the town I adore most in this amazing state!

Hundreds of vendors, thousands of shoppers and food to die for! I made nice with a Navaho Taco and will again when the opportunity presents itself! I was in heaven! I am most drown to vendors that sell things that I can’t make myself! Jewelry always draws me in! Here are a few of my favorite finds from Swiss Days!

Anina K.  makes the most beautiful hand bags! Each bag was so darling and inside each well crafted bag was an inspirational quote! The thing that I liked the most about this talented vendor was the fact that portions of each sale are donated to vday.org, an organization that helps end violence against woman and girls worldwide! Shop on for a good cause!

It was so fun running into Kristen and Alisa of Trendy Trinkets! I meet these girls in Arizona so to see them at Swiss Days was so great! They have an amazing line of Jewelry and acessories! If you look close at the last photo you’ll see a Bird Cage Necklace that is too too cute!

Trendy Ties! Yep!!! Love this both and it was so fun meeting the darling girls behind the ties! If you have little men at home this is the tie shop for you! And spoiler alert…. Trendy Ties has a giveaway on BCD later this month!

Check out my buys from  Hoop-la Earrings! I absolutely adore this shop! I first fell in love with them  at Oh Sweet Sadie gift show last year! It was so fun to run into Mandy herself! Her earrings are so freakin awesome! I think I own 6 pairs now and that isn’t nearly enough! Endless colors, designs and styles! And good news!!! Hoop-la Earrings will be at  Oh Sweet Sadie this weekend! Go get your earring on!!!

I loved this frame booth and it was such a treat to meet Shana of Sweet Water Frames!  I want these all over my house!  Such fun colors and designs and they stack too so you can create a totally custom look!

Moda Maroo was  a darling booth filled with all sorts of goodness! Scarves, jewelry, art work! I loaded up on gifts and tons of stuff for myself!

Ok…so I don’t know any other way of saying this so I’ll just say it! I HAVE A CRUSH ON  Touch Piece jewelry! This booth was busting at the seems with crazy shoppers! I had to see what all the fuss was about! I got all wide eyed when I saw exactly what the fuss was all about! Beautiful , BEAUTIFUL necklaces, bracelets and earrings! I wish you could have seen me! I had fists full of loveliness! If you are my girlfriend you may or may not be getting something fabulous from Touch Piece for your birthday or Christmas! And I had to make the Hillary Bib my own….

Love this jewelry line!

And of course the fab Oh Sweet Sadie booth!  I love these girls! Heidi and Dani are as fun as their products! I scored the coolest Slap Bracelet watch! Their booth was just  a fun preview for what’s to come at this weekends ( Friday- Sat.) big Oh Sweet Sadie gift show happening in South Jordan at Day Breaks Soda Row! You will not want to miss it! Be there or be square!

I’m hooked! Not a year will pass again with out me making my journey to the other side of the mountain in search of retail euphoria! Swiss Days was incredible! Were you there? What did you buy! Do you have open market fairs like this one in your area! Do tell!!!

    We went to Swiss Days once while we lived up in Utah and I loved it. I remember feeling so stuffed and I just loved browsing through all the shops. This Saturday down here in Houston I’m going to a craft fair called “Shop Til You Drop”. Heck yes! An entire huge event center full of vendors. I’m so excited.

    Hope you got up really early. By the afternoon on Friday it was a madhouse! I can’t believe how many shops there were. Next year I will definitely have some spending money!

      I actually was there Friday after noon and it was hopping! And I think the last day in the last few hours is a perfect time to be there. Many of the booths were having end of the show sales, some even 50% off everything!

    Thank you for posting such a great piece on Swiss Days! Unfortunately no one on the Swiss Days committee has ever taken the time to feature anything about the vendors. Sad but true. I have been attending Swiss Days for 11 years and it get bigger & better each year! YOU have great taste! Love what you featured!!
    Happy Shopping :)

    Oh, I’m sad I missed it this year. I’ve done Swiss Days the past 3 years but his year wasn’t the year for Swiss Days (I had my sweet baby over Swiss Days weekend). It looks like it was really fun again this year. I heard that both the weather and the business was great this year. Congrats on your booth!

    Thanks Becca! It was so fun to run into you THREE times in the past two weeks! I wish I could have gotten away from our OSS booth a little more, but I did see the beautiful Anina K woman walking around sporting her bags, and actually RAN after her to see them. They are sooo gorgeous! We must have the same taste…I love this post.

    Becca,

    Thanks for this post, more specifically thanks for sharing about Anina K and vday.org. I re-posted about both over on my blog where I encourage others to get involved in philanthropy. Also as a side note, thank you for what you did for the LDS Church by posting the humanitarian widget on your site during the Haitian Earthquake. I work for the Church and was the creator of the widget. If you ever want to talk more about the kind of impact you had just let me know. Thanks again and keep up the great work.

      Thanks Barett,

      I always love featuring people or companies that do good for other! I have learned over these few year blogging that if I can’t use my blog for good then it’s really a wasted platform. Please feel free to email me personally any time you rot eh Church need help promoting a cause. I am happy to help!
