Aster Market loves to give back too! Twenty-five percent of the net proceeds are sent to a non-profit of your choice from their selected charities.

Lauren Ericka Designs:
This foldover clutch literally made my day! It is so beautifully made. It has a faux leather bottom and inside slip pocket, a gold zipper and winter high-end plaid details. This will definitely be a staple piece for holiday parties.

Rosemary + Steel:
Super cute crocheted boot cuffs in my favorite Fall/Winter color, burgundy! This color is so hot right now and will coordinate with all of your cozy sweaters! Again, very well made. I hope to get a lot of uses out of these. An accessory that is as stylish as it is practical. With every item sold, they donate a portion to their local community and schools.

CeeCee and Bee:
Natural Tub Tea. I cannot wait to use this! Tub tea contains ingredients like chamomile tea, mint tea and epsom salt. Created by co-owner Charlene who suffers from sensitive skin and wanted a spa treatment that her skin could appreciate.

A Thanksgiving Sweet Treat! Gluten Free Cranberry Apple Mini Pies…

thanksgiving-fall-leaves-mini-pie-gluten-free-dessert

We’ve adapted a Pinterest sweet treat from Catch My Party that will please all of your Thanksgiving family and friends!

These turned out even better than we hoped! The gluten-free crust was just as good as a traditional Thanksgiving pie and the filling is sweet but with a unique tangy kick from the cranberries. Some of the cutouts did stretch a little but you can still tell what each cutout is. From the set I would recommend the maple and oak leaves the most. Not sure if it was the gluten-free crust or my oven, but I did have to bake the mini pies 3-5 minutes longer than the recipe above to get them to a golden brown. Best served warm!

ModelCo HIGHLIGHTING TRIO (Champagne, Peach Bellini, and Bronze Shimmer)
This highlighting trio is a compact, multifunctional palette that gives skin a beautiful luminosity. From a subtle sheen to a bronzed glow this light-reflecting cream to powder formula glides on to enrich the complexion, creating a shimmering incandescence. The three shades diffuse light as they enhance and perfect, giving your skin a fresh, glowing look. This trio contains a luminizer for highlighting cheekbones, a satin-finish blush for cheeks and a glowing bronzer that helps contour and define.

Coolway Stronghold Spray

Crown Brush Deluxe Pointed Crease Brush
