Monday... Monday!

It was wonderful last weekend. I did talk the hubby into going to my favorite flea market in the world!

It's always a great thing to meet a fellow crafter who is willing to spend some time chatting. I happened across a couple who make these fantastic candle holders. I've seen something similar to what they were selling in magazines, but upon interviewing them I could tell they were the real deal. Always a skeptic I am. He actually blows the glass that hangs into these decorative metal baskets. Very beautiful... I had to buy from these folks because no one was appreciating the handmade items that they were selling. He took time away from his lunch to talk with me, so I said here consider it my treat for the meal.

It really pisses me off that no one appreciates something that is not mass produced! I guess that is the reason that I don't do my stained glass that much anymore. Well actually I haven't cut in a while.

I'm really into crocheting lately, and am working on a few new things. I know that I have to pick up the camera, to actually show some stuff off. I just hate all the editing bullshit that goes along with this.

Step Dad is not in the greatest mood still, but I guess that is to be expected.

I will post more when I feel like I have something interesting to share. Right now I'm going to take a nap with my sweetie cause he came home early today!

Peace out to all~

I find flea markets are tough places to sell nice handcrafter items. Most people are looking for bargains and cheap used stuff.

OMG! I am SO from NJ!!!! Edison! Exit 11, LOL! The flea markets are really hard, but keep on with it! The customer base is so diverse, you will eventuälly develop a steady clientelle! If I can do it in Sweden, surely you can back in the Garr-den State!

I LOVE blown glass and handcrafted stuff. It makes me sad that it is so hard to find. I wish more people appreciated it.
