Please Buy Local and Handmade. Pretty please? With a glob of glitter glue on top?

Here's my shameless plug for the holiday season. This Sunday is Handmade Holidays, another fab indie craft fair put together by the Crafty Mavericks. It's at the Bayside Grange from 10 - 4. There are over 35 vendors, all selling magnificent handcrafted goods, as well as live music, cupcakes and so much more. It's going to be a great time.

I'll be unveiling my new line of pendants made out of upcycled maps.

There's plenty from the older lines as well.

Bird Pendants

Weird images from vintage dictionaries

Vintage sheet music and sexy postcards

And lots and lots of words

Why did I think someone would want to hang a bauble with the word bacon around their neck? Because I was hungry when I made it. And high on vicodin.

Hope to see you there.

Fred Mangels said...

Well? Did you sell everything?

Kristabel said...

Not everything...but a lot. At least four people said they'd seen my work on the Humboldt Herald and came because of it. Sweet!

How was the mushroom fair?

Fred Mangels said...

Didn't make the mushroom fair.
