Seriously, what a shindig!
First off, there was live music!
Seriously, freaking awesome sounds. Loves me some swing.
There were incredible artists and vendors of unbelievable goodies there. Old faces and new. First off, I fell in love with the wonderful art jewelry created by Lisa of Inspired Adornments. I’m not finding an online shop, so I feel extra lucky to have had time to peruse her booth. Her stuff is incredible, artfully crafted and completely whimsical. I also fell in LOVE with her booth design. Ya know when you meet someone and you think, “Oh, hey, Kindred SPirit!” that is sort of how I felt about Lisa and her work. Which I look forward to collecting and wearing.
The awesome sauce duo that makes up Reclamation Dept was on hand with their rockin’ bicycle booth and upcycled goodness.
And some old friends too! Rachel and Hearts of Stone was there, Delia with Phoenix Magyk, my lovely pal who designs Hephzi Creations was there, Kelly of PyxeeStyx was on hand with her collection of magical fairydust and fibery awesomeness, oh just oh so many folks. I really did not have time to get out and see them all and I certainly did not have time to get any pictures, alas!
While we’ve already booked our (endcap!) table for the Uptown holiday show (December 7th and 8th, so mark yer calendars, mah funk soul peeps) and also arranged to have the Fairy Tale collection available for sale at Whimsic Alley’s holiday show, that’s really IT for outside craft shows for the rest of 2012.
For now, it is on to CRAFTED. Booth design and build out, new pieces, new directions for Honey&Ollie. So excited about using the opportunity to have a brick and mortar of my very own and having the time to really delve into my core creative vision
Stay tuned for all the “in progress” CRAFTED info you could possibly want.
26 days until our Grand opening…
