Handmade Arcade Recap

We had an awesome time at Handmade Arcade in Pittsburgh this weekend. The shoppers were wonderful, the space was great, and we got to stay with our friends Paul & Valerie of Tugboat Printshop (who made the woodblock print above, and who are both excellent hosts). It was fun to see someone else's printshop, and theirs was one of the more beautiful I've seen. Also, they took us to eat at a Vietnamese Restaurant called Tram, and it changed my life.

The fair itself was fun as well. We were one of 90 vendors and got to see some familiar faces, and purchase a lot of christmas presents. We watched people screenprint 6 foot posters of the front page of the Pittsburgh newspaper from November 5th, ate some fancy cupcakes, sold lots of shirts (and SCARVES!), and vended to nice music.

Coming up this weekend is the ever highly anticipated HOLIDAY HEAP craft fair here in Baltimore. We're busy getting ready this week, and I can't wait to see you all there!!!
