Didn't mind waking up at 6am to set up! The Central Park in Pasadena was littered with lots of tents and some amazing makers. Being awake so early meant that I caught the gorgeous sunrise!
I was paired up with Silver Scarab Designs to share a booth, and the designer, Rachel, is the sweetest person ever and her designs are amazing and so unique. Catch her at pop-ups around town, and I hear that her online store is coming soon.
Our signature cone ring holders in almost every color imaginable.
More picture of our display. We also had some items from our concrete collection.
The show lasted 2 full days and while it was tiring, I really enjoyed meeting all the shoppers and other makers. Everyone was so passionate about their craft!
Me: I'm going to take a look at the other shops for 5 minutes (wink wink). Will you be okay here by yourself?
Me: Ok bye!
There were many amazing shops! But here are some of my favorites:
The Wicked Boheme (pictured above) - Candles and home goods made from marble and copper. Wanted to get everything in this shop because the aesthetics really complement my brands!
Viling Designs - Handmade gold-filled and fine jewelry. Delicate and cute designs. Okay, maybe I'm biased because I know the designer, but do check them out!
Pigeon Tree Crafting - Unique hand-dyed leather accessories.
If I weren't a vendor, I'd have spent all of my money shopping there! There's something about meeting the actual person that makes the products I buy - the whole experience becomes a lot more authentic, and I find that I cherish the product more #shoplocal
