Vendor Spotlight: Bache & Reba and K.K.'s Crochet Corner

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

We're thrilled to introduce bache & Reba and K.K.'s Crochet Corner; two talented creative companies that will be featured in the Buy Local Holiday Market at the Scranton Cultural Center on November 25th. 

Meet  Rachael Arnone of bachestinks and Rebecca Kinsey of Reba Handmade Accessories...aka  bache & Reba!

Tell us about your craft endeavor and what each of you make and the materials you use. 

Rachael creates quality and unique goods from accessories to apparel using found materials, including vintage and recycled.  Rebecca creates handmade accessories from recycled or unwanted materials, and zippers. We often plan sewing days on the weekends and sew into the late hours of the night.  Sewing together allows us to motivate and inspire each other.  It seemed only natural to combine forces in the creation of bache & Reba.

What items will you be featuring at the Buy Local holiday market and how much do they retail for?
Rachael will be featuring skirts, tote bags, as well as aprons.

Rebecca will be featuring zippered pouches, clutches, and purses. Items range from $8-$50.

Meet Kathleen Knott of K.K.'s Crochet Corner!

Tell us how you get started selling your crocheted wares and a description of your company/products: 

I have been an avid crocheter since I was 9 years old.  My mother taught me the basics and as I got older I taught myself the more complicated stitches.  Up until last summer, family and friends have always encouraged me to sell my items, but it was a passing thought. I met the public relations representative at TheGathering Place inside Sugarman's Flea Market, and she made me see that my items were really unique and one of a kind.  From there many doors have opened for me in the crafting world.

K.K.'s Crochet Corner offers handmade crochet items from the heart.  Every item I make, whether it is for a custom order or an item ready to sell, my heart and soul goes into my items, and it shows in the end product.  I also pride that I take part in many benefits and donations that are in no relation to a craft show.  For example, currently I am donating 50% of my proceeds from every craft show to a fellow Penn State School of Nursing school graduate, Justin Ware, who was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 23. I feel no one should go through that kind of hardship, especially at a young age. I created handmade lavender ribbon magnets for Justin's benefit where 100% of the proceeds will go to Justin's uncovered medical expenses.  I take pride in the fact that K.K.'s Crochet Corner is always willing to make a donation of some sort. It's always been a part of me as a human being to give back to the community in any way. 

What items will you be featuring at the event and how much do they retail for?

At the event I will be featuring items that can be given as gifts for the holidays.  This will range from various kinds of hats of all sizes, scarves, Christmas stockings, purses, and much much more!  The average range retail for the items are $6-$30.

Do you carry adult wares as well as children's?
Yes I do carry adult wares as well as children's.  I make adult scarves, fingerless gloves, purses, hats and much, much more. 

How can people find you?
People can find me on my business page on Facebook at
I also sell adult wares at Willow Tree Shop on Oram Street in Scranton, PA, and I sell both adult and children's wares at The Gathering Place inside the Sugarman's Flea Market in Eynon, PA.
