Art Star Craft Bazaar 2009

Here are some photos of my table at the Art Star Craft Bazaar. ASCB took place this past weekend in Philadelphia.

You can click on the pictures if you want to see the notes on each item in Flickr.

Although I didn't sell many things, I had a great time at ASCB. First of all, the location is beautiful - right on the Delaware river waterfront. I felt like I was on vacation the whole time; very relaxing. Just as lovely were all the nice people I came in contact with. I was touched by seeing kids use up their allowance money to purchase a Timmie. It really meant a lot to me. Also, I saw a few cases of friends buying gifts for friends who were standing right with them in my booth, which I thought was really sweet. Annnnnd... I met other Patrizios!!! I have never met another Patrizio randomly. Our families come from the same area in Italy too! If you are reading this ladies, keep in touch!

I also made 2 excellent trades with my neighbors. I have to admit, lately I am a bit of a trade snob. I will only trade for items that I can use on a daily basis or art/craft supplies. I live in a small apartment so I have to be selective. I got some delicious smelling soap (my mouth actually watered when I smelled the cherry amaretto scent) from Bunny Butt Apothecary, and some lovely wool pebbles from Traveling Rhinos, which I plan on turning into super fancy pom-poms for softie hats. Yay!

I will try to add all the items I have left over to my shop soon. I will post an official shop update notice shortly.

Will you be putting the Squeezels in the shop? I really really want the one with the lilac accents. I have a small apartment too, but I would throw out something to make room for a Squeezel...

Yes, I still have all the Squeezels with me. I will be adding them to the shop on the next shop update.

The booth looks wonderful! I'm sorry you didn't sell much, but am happy that it means those of us who weren't in the area have a chance at what you brought home. I can't wait for your shop update! I plan to finally adopt one of your softies this time round.

Marilyn, this is Jane from Mary Beth McKenzie's class (2 years ago? when you made the self-portrait with the crocheted scarf). Wanted to tell you that I saw your Red Dot painting at the ASL last night and was blown away by how gorgeous it is! Like bits of stained glass in paint. Your cuties are adorable too!

Hi Jane! Thanks for writing me! I had no idea that my painting was being shown! I am thinking of taking classes again at ASL. Are you still in McKenzie's class? Do you have your work online? I would love to see it!
