The Boz

 

Saturday's Bazaar Bizarre at the Shrine in L.A. was a little different than last years. There were fewer venders (notably, fewer indie artists/comics/printmakers) and perhaps a little less traffic (due to rainy weather and the previous week's Felt Club). But it was still fun. If you've never been to one of the shows, the types of crafts could perhaps be extrapolated by some of the prizes given away from at the cakewalk: cute, nerdy, or goth.




Wendy's Girlyfries is probably closer to cute than the others. Maybe the red flowers could be goth, but so far, she hasn't gone for any vinyl or rubber accessories.


There were tons of friends around who were selling their awesome handmade things. Here are a few of them...


Okay, this wasn't a fair picture since Susie was still setting up and not ready to pose. Nonetheless, you can tell that she has tons of stuff, including T-shirts, wallets, notecards, buttons, and more.


Crooked Teeth. Rats, I don't know the site because I usually bump into her at shoes! She seems to have expanded from nice T-shirts to scarves, convertible mittens, and other knit goods including cool mascots. Look her up and don't get too distracted by the Death Cab sites!


Feisty Elle is operated by Leslie from San Francisco. She uses cool old textiles like kimono fabric or origami paper to make pins, buttons, and other accessories. It's super well done.



GR friends from Poketo were there, too. I also saw our pal Jeremy from Chimni, but didn't have my camera... Purchases? I didn't buy anything because I'm on a budget and my X-mas shopping is pretty much done. But it looked like there were tons of happy people who scored handmade product.



p.s. Thanks Jenny (not pictured above) for delivering cookies and and a soy peppermint latte, even though it would have been nice if they came at the same time.

Hey Martin, thanks so much for posting a picture of my friend/booth babe Coleen and I, and linking to Feisty Elle! You and Wendy rock! It was so great to see her again and to meet you in person.

BTW, quick correction, I use imported Japanese cotton and chirimen rayon, not origami paper. Gotta think about durability. Thanks! =D
