December was crazy busy with shows- 4 shows in three weekends! The first weekend, I traveled to Jersey City for the Not Yo Mama’s Holiday Craft Show held at Art House Productions. The first day of the show was part of the city’s First Friday event and the second was a separate event. Here’s a photo of my setup:
my awesome neighbors (who are also from PA) were the husband & wife team of pop star crafts. check out their unique branch display with handmade star ornaments!
here are some other vendors whose work i really enjoyed:
these tiny crochet animals by studio llama llama bring a smile to everyone’s face.
it was a pleasure to meet and chat with fellow printmaker nicole poko of another husband & wife team of nightingale projects. i really enjoyed their work and setup!
love these cute little creature pins by fluffy goodness.
loved these pantone accessories by defenestration.
how fun are these pillows by ula nice?
i’m a sucker for moustaches! especially these by cheek & stitch.
the following weekend, i ventured to new york city (!!) for my first ever show there! i was a one-day participant in the holiday 2011 BUST magazine craftacular. it was at a great underground space in SoHo- check out the hall i was in:
the next day, i headed back to philly to participate in the holiday R5 production’s punk rock flea market. it was an incredibly successful show for me- although very very chilly in the flea market dome off of spring garden.
i eventually walked around and do some shopping. i got a sweet dr. dog silkscreen poster from illustrator max gordon. i really enjoyed black heart letterpress’ work and setup- they brought out their press for prints on site! this was one of my favorite cards of theirs:
i came home with this sweet card by kristin grossi:
i thought the catjawn! table was hilarious- here’s an image from their site:
