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.
Alex Foster of Treelight Heirlooms is a new 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.
I am bringing Wooden Rainbow Stacker toys, wonky wooden blocks, and more.
How did you get started making your glorious plunder?
It began as a side project in graduate school.
What’s an item you are bringing that you are really excited about?
What else would you like everyone to know about your wares?
They’re all hand made by me.
What’s your favorite love or pirate story and why?
The Pirates of the Caribbean, the ride at Disneyland! We captured on video our oldest child’s first laugh while waiting in line, and then he loved the ride.
You can find Treelight Heirlooms on the interwebs!
And, of course, you will meet them in person at Muggles Market: Love and Plunder on Sunday February 5, 2023 from 10:00AM to 4:00PM at Queen’s Sports Complex, 2229 Tyvola Rd. Charlotte, NC 28210! It’s always a good time for pirates! So dress in your finest, sea-worthy garb, and come check out these awesome treasures!
