I Made it Market - April 2 Show - Glass Lofts

The show went pretty well!!! As promised I took some photos of the show. I did not have the opportunity to take pictures of everything, but I will try to take more next week at the next craft show.

Yesterday went well! I got my display up quickly and I think it looked pretty good if I do say so myself. I invested in a couple new bird displays. I like how the colors and heights are all different but still compliment each other nicely. My next goal is to find some nice bowls to sell sets of eggs together in.

There was diverse
artists with some WONDERFUL items! From weaving newspaper plastic bags into rugs, to leather work, woodwork, and wonderful jewelry, I enjoyed being among these wonderful crafters!

The crafter next to me had some fantastic reworked jewelry with a Gothic and vintage feel. Her displays were wonderful! I had fun talking with her during the day and eying her items for something to buy myself as a prize next week.

Not only were her items
lovely, but I had the pleasure of seeing a fantastic crafter's loom! Sher takes the plastic bags your newspapers come in and weaves them into rugs! She can even point out every newspaper with it's proper bag based on the bag's color. I find that amazing. She receives donations from individuals from out of state as well as local donations! It's great that she is part of a movement to recycle and reuse materials that so often are trashed, creating excessive pollution. She will be at another festival at the end of April for crafters who reuse and recycle in their craft! I hope to attend in order to see all the wonderful crafts as well as shop for some items of my own!

Another girl makes hair clips out of keys from old computer keyboards. Items too old for current use, but without an easy recycling process, such equipment lands in good wills or dumpsters. She takes this unwanted materials and makes a cute and useful accessory any trend setting person would love to own!

I need to grow out my hair in order to buy
one of these! It's a goal :)

Some wonderful fabric artists were also at this event.
I found a great array of fabric purses, great for the Spring hanging and ready for purchase! I wish I had a partner in crime at the show so I would of had time to run around and purchase items with the money I made at the show. Sadly, I was on my own. Maybe it's a blessing in disguise, because I wanted so many items. Even I items I did not have a chance to photograph.

Here are a few other photos of great items and displays from the show:
