commonwealth crafters


this chickadee flew south on sunday to visit the spring bada-bing craft happening in richmond. the richmond craft mafia familia sure knows how to put on a show. they assembled a fine group of vendors in a great location. there was plenty to see and also plenty of room to wander about perusing various offerings. here are some super cute finds that i spied there:



and there was so much more! my apologies to the other great vendors not featured above. see a complete list of them on the spring bada-bing website. hopefully you are inspired to get out there and support your local crafters and artisans. an amazing amount of creativity, skill and love lurk right outside your door and outside of the mainstream marketplace.

This post inspired me to attend a local art and craft show, where I found several items to give as gifts this summer, including a great tree stump with a mosaic on top to be used as a stool. Hooray for artists like y'all!
