handmade market

Today I moseyed around the handmade market for a few hours. There was a huge number of people there, so surely a fantastic day for the makers who were selling. I picked up a few goodies, and some supplies as well. Honestly, it was lovely to be saturated in the handmade, and the quality of work and finishing in most cases was spot-on, however a lot was left to be desired on the originality front. (It was hard to not become the handmade police as a few copy-cats were selling items made obviously from other people's original designs).

Some of the cool kids that impressed me though were:
It must be said, I could not resist the above little reel of bakers twine from paperklip, presented in such a cute manner.

It's really disappointing to see copycats at markets. Hopefully shoppers know better and don't buy.
