This past weekend I participated in the Holiday Art Star Craft Bazaar at the 23rd St Armory in Philly. It was the first holiday ASCB and it was so much fun. The show featured a juried selection of local and not so local artists. It was a great weekend...but tiring (oh, and I clumsily ran over my foot with the loaded handtruck!). I think we need a roadie and Ollie the kitty just won't work! (pic below)
I shared a booth with my good friend and fellow craft show junkie Miss Millie. Millie makes amazing hand built porcelain ceramics and jewelry. We always manage to have fun and craziness together at the shows we do.
The best part of the weekend was seeing my dear Lolo Dahling, the other half of the original label we created called Lolo + Gretch Dahling. She was visiting from NM for a little while. It was bittersweet knowing she was going back home soon, but we still had a fabulous time.
Our friend Jay McCarroll was at the show too. You may remember him from the first season of Project Runway and his indie film called Eleven Minutes. Jay and I went to school together and have kept in touch over the years. He is such a talented designer. Keep a look out for more to come from him!
It was an altogether fantastic weekend and a great way to start the holiday show season. Check out my pics!
