I had such fun at the Crafty Supermarket. I met some terrific people and was inspired by all of them — they are not just makers, but doers. Drawing, painting, business-owning, sewing, organizing, DJing, writing doers. Oh yay, and that's in addition to full time jobs. The organizers in particular, Grace, Alisha and Chris, were incredibly gracious, organized, fun and inspiring! Of course, I rarely left my table because it was crazy busy, but here is just a wee peak…
I met the lovely Jess from Paper Acorn — I wasn't quick enough to snatch up one of her paper bird boxes. They sold out in a flash!
My view for the day was of these fantastical creatures, or "hand-crafted curiosities" from Lori Brown of Morninglori.
I also got to check out Fabricate on Sunday, a new Cincinnati shop run by my hostess and all-around extraordinary lady, Chris Salley along with her business partner. They have all kinds of goodies from local makers, as well as a gallery space. The current exhibit is from a local high school class — I love the community feel of the whole place, not to mention the turquoise!
