This weekend is the Urban Craft Uprising at the Seattle Center. UCU is Seattle's largest indie craft show and is open until 5pm tonight. I went yesterday and spent way too many hours perusing and being generally impressed. I walked out of there with some great gifts and a ton of business cards ready to continue my perusing online.
Here are some snapshots I took as well as some images from the vendors online shops.
*tones of color pallets and designs in person, I'll keep watching the shop for updates!
*loved several of her illustrations, very clever, check them out
*this vendor had a coffee table with copper legs. gorgeous! putting him on my list when a furniture purchase is in my immediate future.
*leather and canvas utilitarian and clean design bags and accessories
*they eat fruit flies, now I am almost excited to put the plants to the test!
*so many delicious sat and sugar varieties, it would make a great gift!
*drool-worthy leather bags, one of these is going on my christmas list!
*I bought these earrings in the Nephrite Jade for myself and another pair for a friend. great quality jewelry.
*super cute, they have more than just animals. I would love these in a nursery/kids room.
*loved everything - my friend almost bought one of everything. bags have excellent construction, and all the materials are thoughtful and good quality.
*sadly no room in my current house for a cat teepee, but I loved these abstract/modern aztec designs and got a kid's tee shirt and tote bag (this vendor does glow in the dark designs too!) hopefully they will be available to sell online soon.
*black and whites with silver and gold accents. I will be watching their shop for more styles!
