Vendor Spotlight - Coob Originals

COOB Originals creates handcrafted items from jewelry to the occasional piece of furniture using recycled and upcycled materials. Calvin of Coob Originals uses donated broken skateboards (a lot comes from Talent Skatepark of South Burlington) in these orignal creations. I instantly fell in love with his work and was thrilled that he applied for the show. Be sure to stop by on Saturday May 8th at Union Station in Burlington to check out the rest of his products.

Vendor Spotlight - urban farmgirl

Erinn Simon is one of my favorite people. She is an amazing mom and a rocking crafter. Many years ago she pulled me aside one morning at Viva Espresso in the ONE and asked me to be a part of a new craft group she was starting called the Burlington Craft Mafia. Together with another founding member we crafted our way into a great friendship and we helped spread the movement of indie craft in Burlington. We closed down the group a few years later, but Erinn continues to push the limits with crochet hooks in hand. Her work is wonderful and so is she. I am so happy she is back as a vendor this year and so thankful for her years of friendship and support. Check to learn more about Erinn and her work.

Vendor Spotlight - Strange Dolls

Beth Robinson is a self taught artist who has been living in Vermont for 15 years. While she has dabbled in a variety of mediums, it was the discovery of polymer clay that allowed her to combine her interests in design, sewing, sculpting, and painting and gave her a concrete foundation of expression in the form of Strange Dolls.

I am pleased to announce Beth will be a new vendor at the Queen City Craft Bazaar this year. She will be offering special pricing on many of the dolls you see available on her website. Stop by and check out the unique and wonderful work of Beth Robinson.

Amazing resource

I feel like a kid in a candy store. I stumbled upon a new website this weekend and I have been busy pouring over it ever since. Unanimous Craft is a tagable, sortable index of resources for crafters, artists and indie business owners. I am not even going to try to explain all the awesomeness this site has to offer. Go check it out for yourself and have fun playing. I even submitted a listing for the Queen City Craft Bazaar. You can see the listing here.
