Well, I'm back from my weekend upstate and I did manage to score a few nice things!
I do wish the pictures were better though.... I took them inside (at night), so the color is way off, but I'm sure you will get the idea anyway.
The very first booth I came too had some really nice stuff! I didn't buy anything right away in hopes that a few other goodies would turn up, but... well, not so much. However, I did come across this very nice lady who made her own lampwork beads. She was selling bracelets and necklaces in a multitude of colors. I spoke with her a while then turned my attention to her jewelry and immediately imprinted on the bracelet below:
It has some really nice beads arranged in the R-O-Y-G-B-I-V spectrum. It is, unfortunately, too large for my wrist. Or anyone's wrist really. But I could not be talked out of it and I plunked down my money with full intention of re-stringing it to a smaller bracelet and perhaps using a focal bead or two for a matching necklace.
I finished the rest of the fair and found a few wonderful vintage metal flower pins that I collect, and then went back to the very first booth and picked up the wonderful goodies below:
The vendor was very nice, he only charged me $8 for the large bead and threw in the two smaller ones. I'm not 100% sure what I will do with them yet, but I sure as heck can't make stitch markers out of them!!
I think... that perhaps... I will consider... starting... to make... JEWELRY (sigh)
I LOVE JEWELRY - but I didn't want to get into making it myself. However, all signs seem to be pointing in that direction - oh dear... (in a good way, of course!)
There was some yarn there too, but only cheap stuff - I realize all yarn is good in its own way, but I just couldn't plunk down my cash for old acrylic.
It was great fun and just PERFECT Fall weather - on Saturday at least!!!
Can't wait for next year!!
