The first booth I noticed was -
Nicole recovers these chairs herself -
They are so pretty with the multiple fabrics and the designs on the seat backs -
I really want one like this for my daughter's room -
Nicole said her website will be up soon, so I will pass along the information when I get it.
Then, I saw this jewelry made out license plates -
I especially like the rings -
These would make a great gift for a special high school student in your life. I have one in particular who might be getting some of this for Christmas. You can visit their Etsy store at http://www.stresstheseams.etsy.com/ or buy their stuff in person at the reinspiration store.
I also saw jewelry made out of old coins -
You can visit Susan Myers' website at http://www.coinjewelryetc.com/.
Kathy Walton makes the cutest garden art out of recycled steel -
These are just a couple of the guys in the "band" -
You can visit her website at http://www.kathywaltonart.weebly.com/ to see the other steel and ceramic art she has created.
Jill Sharp makes really beautiful sterling silver jewelry -
I like how raw some of the metals look. You can visit her website at http://www.bpjewelry.com/. I may be going back to her to buy some gifts. I am always struggling to find unique Christmas gifts and have recently realized that arts festivals are a great place to find them. I'll try to notify you ahead of time on festivals in Atlanta. I think a lot of them were this past weekend. However, one vendor told me about the Gifts Galore and More in East Cobb on Oct 5-6 and another told me about the Brookhaven Arts Festival coming the weekend of October 15-16.
At this point, everyone started closing up shop. As a mom with young kids, I am rarely out at 6:00 in the "good light". So, I was delighted to see a perfect photo setting that evening and made my daughter sit still for a few shots -
So, my trip was successful on several levels. See you at the next festival!
