fleaChic Road Trip!
Over the weekend I popped over to Clearwater, FL, to visit BFF Lisa
and her hubby Jim and it was SO much fun. There was an amazing
Street Craft Fair in historic downtown Dunedin - we shopped and ate
and shopped and ate and, well, you get the picture.
Like any popular fair, parking was a challenge.
Crafters are so ingenious at problem solving!
As we walked toward the center of town we
stopped at some darling gift and decorating shops:
The picture, below, is a little dim but the creator of this unusual
towel rack painted the handles to look like vintage fishing lures:
Once we arrived at the street fair we immediately
found a booth of repurposed jewelry:
The charming watch rings were very popular and sold briskly - only
one typewriter key ring and one pair of watch face cuff links were
left by the time we got to the booth:
Yes, that's my camera in the mirror, trying
to get a close-up shot of this unusual broach:
Looking for a pendant light idea? Lots of liquor
bottles had been repurposed into light fixtures:
A yard art sculptor created a large crane out of scrap
metal. I think his beak is some kind of sieve/press.
At $35, the repurposed coat racks seem a bit pricey:
One gentleman repurposes utensils into yard ornaments:
The dragonflies are my favorite.
Mr. Frog is adorable, isn't he?
We watched the craftsman create more insects right
there in his booth. It really is harder than it seems.
And who can go to a beautiful coastal town without
visiting the beach? It was practically deserted:
It was a warm, crafty weekend of fellowship on
the gulf of central Florida. We felt so blessed.
