Stone Street Tie-Dye and Graphics—brilliant T’s! I was first drawn in by their shark shirts but then, then I saw the tanks that were just all over color. Had to have one. As you may recall, I’m a firm believer in color. The more the merrier. There is no occasion, already so happy, that tie dye brilliance can’t improve on it. The opposite holds solidly true as well—no circumstance so dire that tie dye's jubilating hues will fail to instill a bit 'o' peace.
Guilday Glass—I’ve a couple of their small glass bead sun catchers. I’d love to have an entire window done with one of these designs. They also make earrings. Mega reasonably priced too! Yes, I’ve more than a few pair.
Jen bought a stunning blown glass tumbler from David Benyosef. I couldn't find a website for him but he's got a public Facebook page where more of his work can be see.
There were a ton of other brill artists there. I couldn’t get near a lot of tables due to the crowds. Yes, as I mentioned earlier—rainy day but still a ton of folks out to enjoy the fest.
Chris Taylor of Taylor Custom was there. Just as well I couldn’t get near his table. I, undoubtedly, would have bought too damn much of his fabulous stuff, just as I did at the River fest. I mean, honestly now, who doesn't need an anatomically correct human heart locket or a trilobite nodule keychain OR a set of chameleon drawer pulls?
