One of our favorite local vendors is Robin Macek of YouMeUs Designs. Robin has been a huge supporter of Farmers Market Finds and has become our go-to when we are looking for something unique to wear or give as a gift. Previously a personal trainer, Robin now puts her heart and energy into designing jewelry that is ‘Boho Chic’, fun and unique. Working on something she truly loves allows her to feel like it is Christmas every day! Her customers become her friends, and she looks forward to their repeated visits at the markets. She loves encouragement and gets inspiration from her shoppers and followers on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. So be sure to follow her and leave feedback!
As a child Robin loved to play with beads and create beautiful objects. When she decided to make a career switch it seemed a natural fit. With a table on loan from a friend, she headed to her first show. Her inventory of 15 items sold out almost immediately! Since then, she has grown her collection of jewelry to encompass custom orders, rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and even zipper pulls. She has even started offering watches. I’m loving this one!
Many of her pieces are earth tones that are easy to coordinate with your wardrobe. Others reflect the beautiful coastal surroundings that Robin calls home. Expanding the line, YouMeUs Designs is now offering “Walking Dead” inspired Katana jewelry. These are our warrior pieces! You know, for when we are doing battle with a zombie (or your ex’s new girlfriend). The bohemian flair and unique designs make for a large referral and repeat business, so be prepared to get hooked on these!
You can find YouMeUs Designs this fall at many holiday markets in North Carolina or catch her at farmers market in southeastern North Carolina. On Mondays YouMeUs Designs is at the Oak Island Farmers Market, Tuesdays at the Kure Beach Farmers Market, Wednesdays at the Poplar Grove Farmers Market, and every other Saturday at the Carolina Beach Farmers Market. Robin thrives on the input she gets from visitors and the lucky individuals who find her booth at a market. So please, if you see YouMeUs Designs at the market stop and tell her we sent you and be sure to treat yourself to a beautiful piece of unique jewelry! See you next time at the market!
