this past weekend i checked out the last minute panic holiday market held by western new york book arts collaborative. there were tons of great goodies – i wish i could of taken more home with me. fortunately, i did the next best thing and took photos of some of the vendors work. so i plan on featuring some local artists here over the next week. there is so much talent here in buffalo, ny, i am excited to share these great items with my readers!
i did splurge on a couple small items for myself from the artist that is featured today, elizabeth switzer of crude crafts.
i purchased this great pillow cover below. she hand sews the cover and screen prints the image on the front. i loved this so much it already has a spot in my house!
i also love these star ornaments and purchased one of those as well. they are sweetly handmade and also eco-friendly! each of these stars are cut and sewn from wool sweaters that were no longer useful for wearing – but perfect for up-cycling! great as a stocking stuffer, a gift for yourself or an adornment on a wrapped present or bottle of wine.
check out crude crafts on etsy! liz’s ornaments are currently on sale at local candy shop can can on elmwood. great for a last minute gift or for adorning any other gift you already have!
