Jackalope Indie Artisan Fair 2018: A Year In Review

2018 has been a BIG year for Jackalope on many fronts.

As many of you know, there are just two of us at the helm of Jackalope. When life events happen, you gotta take a moment and celebrate the time!

We started off the year celebrating Melissa’s marriage in the Dominican Republic!


Then, just two weeks later, we hit the ground running with our first spring fair of the year in Pasadena. The weekend was full of Jackalope Cheers, friends, pets, and fun!


Moving right along, we made it to Denver in May for our spring fair there. Where artisans hosted workshops for guests, amongst the handmade shopping galore and where we helped raise awareness for the Zane Beadles Parade Foundation!


Next up was a first for us! The 1st ever Jackalope Summer Nights came to Pasadena in August where guests could shop into the night and enjoy a drink at the beer garden.


In September, we welcomed a couple new interns to our team! Shout out to Alyssa and Chloe, they both killed it this year. Alyssa will be continuing with us in 2019 so keep an eye out for her! She is a freshman in high school and has already started her own business, ALJ Skincare- she is a Jackalope vet ;)

And before we knew it, the year was passing us by and it was time for our fall fair in Pasadena!


Our final fair wrapping up show season we celebrated in Denver this December! One of our favorite parts of this Holiday fair is sharing the holiday cheer with our fair beneficiary, Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies. We just love those pups and having them get involved in the event!


And (drum roll please)…. we ended the year with a fun announcement. A new addition to Sara’s family is coming to the Jackalope team in 2019.


Looking ahead to 2019, we can’t wait for more fun in Pasadena and Denver, and we’re SO STOKED to expand our Jackalope Community to Burbank as we join their 16th annual Burbank Arts Festival!

We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has helped to grow our Jackalope Community this year and we look forward to seeing you in 2019!!!
