So, City of Craft. I’m exhausted and wish I was laying on the couch all day today, but I have orders at the studio (which I spent all day yesterday cleaning an re-organizing in the wake of the hurricane that was prepping for this fair), so I’m off on my way there in ten minutes.
In the meantime, a few photos. I didn’t get to snap as many as I would have liked and the quality is only iPhone-level, but let’s do this thing.
First up, my table. Roisin was there to give me excellent display advice.
And Jane was beside me…
Old Weston was on our far end. Love her cone necklaces and gold tooth bling.
I bought a pair of wrist warmers from Anna Zygowski and tested them yesterday. Approved!
And I picked up Serena McCarroll‘s All Citizens. This was especially wild because I had JUST interviewed David Collier (who illustrated part of the book) on Friday.
Finally, though I don’t have a picture and I actually bought this after getting home yesterday, I picked up a shawl from Good Night, Day. I’ve been eyeing Tara-Lynn‘s stuff for a couple years and after interviewing her for the Spec a few weeks ago, and hearing straight from her mouth about her knits and process and aesthetic, I was extra sold.
I can’t wait to get this next week. Please cross your fingers that I can keep from being a total spazz and spilling coffee all over it.
Finally, Jane and I got a Hotwire deal on a room at the Hyatt on King and it was nutty. The whole place was like a frat house – with drunk clubbers slobbering all over the place and leaving garbage all up and down the hallways. Also, we came home to our room on Saturday night and found the bathroom floor covered with water near the tub. At first we thought the ceiling was leaking, but I’m now 99% sure someone came into our room and showered.
Speaking of – look at the bathroom window. Seemed out of place for a room with two beds. Especially since it was beside the toilet. NOT SEXY.
But the room itself was kind of space-agedly cool, so there was that.
And that’s everything! Thanks to everyone who put this on, came out and picked up some holiday gifts!
