A few days ago I was looking on instagram and I noticed that @littlecanoe was in DC. I love looking at visitors pictures of DC. I am always interested in where they are going and what they are seeing. It turns out that she was in town to take part in craft bastards. An enormous craft show just a few blocks from my house. I had no idea this was happening and so quickly looked it up and made plans to attend. R stayed home to play with his wood working which left me free with money burning a hole in my pocket and a wonderful afternoon of searching for all sorts of wonderful goodies.
I of course spent more than I should have but it is worth it for all the hand made goodies. I even spent lots of money at little canoes stall and blathered about following her on instagram, I am not so good with meeting strangers. Check out her etsy shop though it is full of lovely illustrations.
Here are a few of the lovely things I found
An awesome sugar bowl from Elizabeth Benotti
A little whale bowl from Abby Berkson
These fabulous cards and stickers from Little Canoe
and this great t-shirt printed in Baltimore, unfortunately I can't remember the name of the company.
I had a lot of fun despite the unusually hot weather for this time of year. Bright blue skies and blazing sunshine showing off the beginning of autumn.
Lots of love
