May We Fly

Left: 2019 Farmer’s Market Wall Calendar

This gorgeous wall calendar features watercolor illustrations by local artist Leana Fischer, whose work has been featured in items from Hallmark and Papyrus. For this calendar, Leana has created a collection of 12 illustrations that celebrate her love of Saturday morning walks around the Farmer’s Market in Northwest Arkansas. Bursting with flowers, fruits and veggies, this calendar will look beautiful in any friend’s kitchen (and yours, too)! It measures 11×17 and is printed on smooth, heavy cardstock. You can choose between two binding styles — either spiral bound or binder clip plus twine. Calendar also includes all U.S. holidays and moon phases. It comes with a page of “Market Day” stickers, so you’ll never forget when it’s time to shop your favorite Farmer’s Market. Cost is $28 or 2 calendars for $50.

Right: Snowy Night Assorted Card Set

Even in an increasingly digital world, there’s something so special about finding a real card in the mailbox. We suggest either gifting the entire set to a card-loving friend or getting them for yourself to use as holiday cards this year. (They’re sized so that you can fit a 4 x 6 photo inside the card.) With 12 cards total, there are three cards of each of the 4 beautiful designs, each printed on heavy cardstock. The cards come with white cotton envelopes and are packaged in a clear, sturdy box. Cost is $30 for the set.

Where to shop: Shop anytime of day or night by visiting the May We Fly online store.
