Art Star Craft Bazaar Recap

Joe and I recently attended the Art Star Craft Bazaar in Philadelphia & I wanted to highlight some of the talented vendors. The show was held at Penn's Landing on the Delaware River Waterfront which was a very nice setting.

I love Nate Duval's artwork. Once we have a permanent home, I would love to decorate with a few of Nate's prints, such as Hootie and Flowers 2. I've also been a fan of the Aquatic Cowboy (pictured) for some time.

Tasha McKelvey creates lots of great ceramic pieces. I love her small bowls adorned with squirrels and birds. At the show, she had the cutest garden gnome plant stakes (pictured), as well as hedgehogs (one of which I nabbed for myself).

Endless Hats & Endless Records features handmade hats and bags, as well as fine quality music from Bloomsburg, PA. They had a variety of great hats & I especially loved their handbags made of vintage tea towels.

Joe and I were both in awe of the unique accessories created by Jesse Walker of Realm Jewelry. I am especially intrigued by the Cameo Pin Cluster necklaces and the Hard Candy Triple Pin necklace.

Angela Davidson is an extremely talented fiber artist. We were enamored with her lovable and lively creatures. All her creations are so well-made and have such personality. The large-lipped squids and Giraffarina (pictured) were among our favorites.

We purchased the best-smelling candle from Melo Studios. These eco-friendly soy candles are available in recyclable tin canisters or in various upcycled glasses and tea cups. We purchased a honeysuckle scent in an adorable mushroom glass.

Sharing a booth were Soda Bomb and Rotorcaps. Both feature accessories made from repurposed or upcycled materials, such as rotorcaps and vintage bottle caps. I purchased a funky pair of My Pops vintage soda bottle cap earrings (pictured). I also wanted the dog earrings & necklace from Rotorcaps, but had to stick to my budget.

And, on a local note, if you happen to be in Philly and are looking for a not-so ordinary date night, check out The Clay Studio. They offer a date night once a month where the instructors will walk you through a few simple projects, or you are free to make your own creations. Your work will be glazed, fired, and ready for you to take home in approximately two weeks after the event. Beer, wine, snacks, materials and firings are all included. The next date night is Friday, June 18.
