Tell us a little bit about yourself.My name is Christina Smith. I live in the Philly suburbs with my boyfriend and fellow creative adventurer. I recently received my BFA in printmaking from Tyler school of art, and have been printing ever since in my homemade studio.
What will shoppers find in your tent?
Shoppers will find my hand printed cards, prints, and notebooks, as well as my hand sewn tea towels, zipper pouches and much more. My items will be intermingled with the wonderful antique finds of MeadowSweet Vintage.

Where do you find your inspiration?
Inspiration comes and goes at it likes, but more recently I have been inspired by vintage textiles and color palettes. I am also very inspired by the process of silkscreening itself, in the way that layers can be created and new colors can be made.
Besides Clover, where is your favorite place to shop for art, antiques, vintage or handmade?
There is an antique store in my hometown which has room after room of antiques, but the basement is set up a bit like a 50's diner. That room is my favorite.
What possession do you most cherish?
The things I cherish most are the possessions that have a story of their own. One of these is a locket that my grandfather sent my grandmother while in the Navy in WWII, it hangs on a gold chain with another locket that holds tiny pictures of when they were young.
