All That Talent

It's hard to believe that it was one week ago that I piled the car with garlands, prints, bookmarks and canning labels and set up shop at the Halifax Crafters Society's Spring Fair. It was my first time doing a big show like that and it was a blast.

The thing that struck me most throughout the entire weekend was the amount of raw talent they can fit under one roof. There really is something for everyone. I had my eye on so many things it was nearly impossible to narrow the list down.

Some of my favourites from the show include: Hello Daylight (who doesn't love a good bike poster?) Bespoke Uprising (linen tea towels with the sweetest designs), Wanderlust (satisfying my new hankie obsession), Anna Taylor (maker of the gorgeous HFX embroidery), Heart and Hook (she makes me want to fill my home with terrariums), Kyla Francis (how did I walk away without a mug?), Sweet on Ewe (her antique sock knitting machine stole my heart) and Honeyspoon Baking Co (for the name alone and the fact that she has the best granola anywhere). There were more. So many more and each one is worth taking a look at. The full list of vendors can be found here.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by my spot to have a look, share letterpress stories, give lovely compliments or take a few goodies home. It was a great weekend.
