Art Star Craft Bazzar

Saturday Was the Art Star Craft Bazaar, which is pretty huge (and free).

I got me some stuff (which by chance these fine folks also have etsy shops).

Jennifer Owlington from Tigerflight

Is a small pillow/plushie made from recycled and felted sweaters and corduroy pants.

Two bookmarks for my husband, who usually can't stay awake for more then a few pages at a time.

These are from beacon bookmarks and are usually from recycled hardwood, and sometimes they even use vintage stamps.

Then of course laceweight alpaca yarn from No Two snowflakes.

Not my usual colors a cream yarn with the lightest tints of color. I had been thinking a nice neutral shawl for once would be wardrobe friendly.

Food vendors where good, crafts were well made and people where nice and friendly. My only beef is that there where too many bizarre plush dolls, infant clothes and papercraft vendors. Every other tent was selling stuffed animals of weird aliens, handmade cards or a whole booths of nothing but screen printed baby onesies and kids tees. A bit more variety would have been good.
