Saturday we attended the Urban Street Bazaar in Dallas, Texas. We saw a lot of our favorite designers & met a lot of new artists & crafters who have quickly been added to our favorites list.
The first artist we visited with was Shelly Pinder. Her artwork was captivating & unleashed the imagination. I happily bought a print of the piece Spider Queen. The detail & colors in this work of art are mesmerizing. I was also impressed with the Alice Cards piece, perhaps because Halloween is right around the corner.
Being the pet lovers that we are, we loved the Bella Vita Pet booth. Jennie Jones creates elevated dog feeders that are stylish & very unique. The Chow Chairs are available in a variety of colors & styles with various embellishments. They also had a great assortment of tees, but I do not see them on the website.
Beth Albrecht of Paired Hearts traveled to Dallas from Austin. Even though she began her company ten short months ago, Beth's work is terrific. I loved all the cards created using felt, such as these lovely elephants. The recycled paper journals were also great products.
We had a great time visiting with Debra Hernandez of DH Originals as she too is a West Texas gal. Specializing in dichroic glass, Debra creates gorgeous accessories that are wearable works of art.
Miney Mo was another favorite of ours. This artist offers terrific images that are screen printed onto stained birch pressed wood. The pink houndstooth coasters would make an excellent stocking stuffer this holiday season!
I am a lip balm addict & I always look forward to discovering new products at the shows we attend. Denise Paruolo of Shibui had a nice eco-friendly offering of Bodee Butters, massage oils, and of course lip balms. I purchased the Grapefruit Lip Styck and it is fabulous! Very moisturizing and long lasting.
We were extremely impressed with the work of Lynn Wilkes Armstrong. Her lace embossed earthenware ceramics are stunning. I know several women who would love to receive a winged lady vase. Lynn also had a great selection of ceramic earrings & bodice jewelry stands at the Bazaar.
Sutecchi is a fun shop featuring eco-friendly, one-of-a-kind threads for kids. The sushi onesie is fantastic, as are the lanterns.
