No secret… I LOVE attending craft shows. Meeting the artists, seeing what they have to offer, chatting with other shoppers… I love it all. The Cowtown Indie Bazaar was no exception. What a fun place to be on a Saturday morning. I took my kiddos to this one. Clyde had been dying for a tooth pillow from REGAL COTTAGE for over a year now. He was so excited and it was one of the first booths we saw. There were about 10 artists there that I had seen at the Spring Fling the week before but a ton of different ones as well.
I remembered some of the vendors from the last Cowtown I attended. I am always impressed that they have created such a brand for themselves that they stick with me from time to time. Even though I had the kids I was still able to walk the aisles for a couple of hours. The kids were impressed with the music and the make and take which was sponsored by Flowerbedhead. They also enjoyed the free photo booth that was sponsored by Captures by Erin I liked that it was a bit more interactive. I’m not 100% sure how I felt about the flow. I kept feeling like I was missing some booths. I guess I’m just disorganized enough that I LIKE being made to go in straight rows without the option of turning half way through. That’s just me though…
If you recognize yourself or were involved with this event please feel free to promote yourself in the comments. I’m all for supporting our local artisans!
Sorry I wasn’t more of a busy blogger last week. Son and hubby both had Spring Break. It was a little more chaotic than usual.
I was super excited to be able to go to yet another fabulous Craft Show featuring Texas artists. The Cowtown Indie Bazaar was held at the Will Rogers Memorial Center on Saturday, March 19. Yet again Etsy817 was represented. Here are those members. Click on their picture to get to their shop. You shall not be disappointed!
I do have to mention that they were ALSO at Funky Finds and I didn’t get a photo. The same is true for my next artist…
Weeds & Wildflowers
As you can see we were, yet again, well represented. I’m always impressed with the talent we have. I will have a longer write up about this show sometime this week. For now please visit the above artists and remember to buy handmade.
What large Craft/Art shows have you attended and what did you like or dislike about them?
This past weekend was the Funky Finds Spring Fling but this coming weekend is The Cowtown Indie Bazaar. The Cowtown takes place on Saturday, March 19 at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort worth and takes place from 9am to 5pm. It is free but parking may cost anywhere from $3 to $5. They also have amazingly cool goodie bags that they pass out to the first 50 people through the door. As always the event is kid friendly.
I am proud to announce that we have some Etsy817 folks taking part in this event as well. They are:
Weeds and Wildflowers
Hopefully I haven’t missed anyone. I also hope that you will stop by and say hi to these talented folks. You won’t be disappointed.
I know I’m probably driving you crazy with talk of the Funky Finds 3rd Annual Spring Fling but it really is THAT cool. There are certain artists that will be there that I can’t wait to check out. Here are a few of them:
