This weekend, Bonnie and I trekked down to Plant Zero for the Richmond Craft Mafia's Handmade Holiday!
The same group held the Spring Bada-Bing in April and I loved all the handmade goodness! It's like a craft fair, but less tacky Grandma and more locally-made Etsy-like items! So me! :)
I scoped out some of the vendors on the RCM blog beforehand, so I had a couple items to watch out for like these chic vases by turnerbots (in eggplant, of course):
And this embroidery hoop art, by Il Gatto Selvatico:
Unfortch I didn't see either - turnerbots had little ceramic robot guys, but I didn't see these vases...bummer.
Modern June had a ton of awesome stuff, including her new book, Sewing with Oilcloth,
but I didn't purchase anything. I would love to get my hands on that
book, but not sure I'd ever make anything with oilcloth to make it worth
the money :(
I did find a few things I couldn't leave without :)
Funnelcloud was selling these beautiful maps and other artwork. I purchased the Virginia map, with each county separated by color - so cool! This will for sure be included in our upcoming stairway gallery wall:
Lastly, I picked up a little mushroom ring holder, by Tasha McKelvey:
I look forward to the next event! I must do even more research before going in case it's as crowded as it was this time! There were a ton of people there (included YHL's Petersiks), and it was hard to navigate through them to see the most popular booths, so I'm sure there was stuff we missed.
