This past Saturday was a lot of fun at the Handmade Faire at
Freedom Park in Medford, NJ ...
I finally had the chance to meet up with fellow EtsyNJ members, I'm a newbie so it was nice to put names and faces together. Abbie from "Original Abbie" did a great job organizing and running this event!!

The day turned out to be sunny and not too hot {if you could stay in the shade}
Here I am...setting up the booth...just about done...
I had the best "neighbors" Kristin and Scott from "Custom Textile Art by K"
they were very helpful supplying me with ties, a chair, and potty breaks...THX!

Ta-da!! ... done! ... lots of gypsy loot to choose from ...

Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the local artist. It truly was a day FULL of inspiration for vendors and customers alike. I had the pleasure of meeting Liz, an Independent demonstrator for the company Stampin' Up ... she went home with quite a few Gypsy Bundles to play with ... would LOVE to see what she creates!

I also learned a lot and was quite inspired {overwhelmed?} by Holly from Blue Fish Moon Studios ... I spied more than a few of her pieces I would like to own!

No pics of Liz and Holly ... too busy gabbing!

My favorite part of the whole event was having the opportunity to hook up with my newest Jersey Jypsy friend {and blog bff}, Kecia {yep, that's us posing above} from Lemoncholy's Studio this is one busy gal! ... Not only is she an AMAZING artist and teacher, she has THREE blogs up and running!!
You absolutely have to take a look at all of them!

1. Lemoncholy's flight of fancy
dedicated to every day ramblings

2.Flea market juncture
what's happening across the country w/shows

3.Jersey Jypsies
The newest blog ... a place for us artistic Jersey girls to come together

I enjoyed every moment of our conversation that day, doesn't seem like we could talk fast enough or stop! ... a few plans are being incubated, when they are ready to hatch you'll be the first to know.

I hope to see everyone again in the fall at the next event!
