Felt Club! Yes, Felt Club. The goodness of this weekend culminated in my trip to Felt Club's holiday extravaganza. It was a crafty bazaar of coolness, cuteness, some strangeness and lots of feltyness. It was really fun.
I could have just photographed all the hipster kiddos I saw there. I wonder who dressed them? It seems cooler if they dressed themselves, but I suspect that their hipster mommies and daddies had something to do with it.
Or I could have photographed all the cool people I saw there. I saw a guy with one good lookin handlebar mustache. He was young and holding an adorable baby girl in his arms. I wanted to ask if I could take his picture because the 2 of them looked so great together, but I didn't have the guts. I guess I am not a real photographer yet. Someday I hope to have the nerve to walk up to complete strangers and ask to take their picture. At least I have something to aspire to.
But I digress. The real reason we went was for the crafts of course. I snapped a few photos of things I liked. There is no rhyme or reason to these photos. It was mostly about getting a shot before someone walked in front of me. It was crowded.
I admired this girl's spunk. he didn't make into Felt Club as a vendor, so she just sold her stuff outside. From her bike. Cool.
She also had her knitting (or is that crochet? I am so uncrafty) ready to go on her stool. To knit (or crochet) between customers I assume.
That brings me to one question: Are you ready to craft????
If you'd rather buy than make, I've listed some of the vendors I like here.
- Some pretty jewelry. "Inspired by forests"
- Fantastic paper goods. A long time favorite of mine.
- Gorgeous pottery. Wonderful birdhouses.
- Supercute (and cheap) hair clips and earrings
- Simple, engraved charms. Very sweet with your baby's name.
- Cute kids shirts and wooden pencil boxes. I really like the puzzle blocks.
- Baby and kids tees. I am partial to the big wheel shirt.
