Spotlight: Miss Courageous

Us crafty ladies here at Wintry Market have been swamped sorting through the overwhelming amount of applications we have received! We are amazed at the talent that this town has and will be releasing a final list of vendors here soon! In the meantime.......

It's time for another vendor spotlight! This time around, we are spotlighting Miss CourageousMillie Hilgert designs and makes all Miss Courageous jewelry & accessories. Everything she makes used to be something else. Call it upcycling, recycling, repurposing, eco-friendly, crafting green, re-use, reinvent, or redesign. Whatever you call it, ultimately it means you get something fresh, fun and new from something that reminds you of your childhood. From vintage game pieces and record vinyl to bottle caps and altered LEGO bricks, Miss Courageous transforms pop culture into Pop Jewelry and Accessories for you and your home. We love the idea of taking normal, household items and turning them into fantastic pieces of jewelry, like this recycled record necklace, Scrabble bracelets, and lego cufflinks!

Her work has been seen on Boise’s channel 6 news; featured in the Idaho Statesman, the Boise Weekly, Treasure Valley Family Magazine, Eagle Magazine, Las Vegas Home & Design and showcased on several popular blogs. Come visit Millie and her beautiful work at Wintry Market on November 5th and 6th!
