We are excited to announce the return of the Muggles Market, just in time for Valentine’s Day! This year’s theme is Muggles Market: Love and Plunder, combining our adoration of pirates and love. As usual, you have a wonderful opportunity to get to know our artists, writers, artisans, and entertainment through our Muggles Market Spotlights.
Cassandra Humphries of The CraftHouse is a returning artisan with our Muggles Markets. We asked them a few questions about their life, work, and what treasures they’ll be bringing to Muggles Market: Love and Plunder.
Please tell us all about the plunder you’ll be bringing to Muggles Market.
This year in addition to novelty boxes, dangling gnomes and Harry Potter ornaments, I’ve added desk / nightstand trinket towers, fandom purses, charms, artwork, 12 day countdown calendars in epic fashion and more! Almost everything is handmade and, knowing the struggle everyone is going through, I’ve made my prices affordable.
How did you get started making your glorious plunder?
I started crafting many years ago after a took a break from drawing. I went to California state university of Sacramento in 1989-1990, and got a degree in fine arts.
What’s an item you are bringing that you are really excited about?
The countdown calendars and desktop trinket holders are pretty eye catching. The multitude of dangling gnomes each have their own personality and bring smiles.
What else would you like everyone to know about your wares?
It’s COLORFUL. It’s fandoms. It’s all nerdy geeky love.
What’s your favorite love or pirate story and why?
Hands down the Princess Bride.
The CraftHouse is accepting pre-orders to deliver at Muggles Market. If you would like to pre-order an item please just send them an email at [email protected].
