Uplands Spring Elementary Craft Fair


Made it to the Uplands Spring Craft fair this past Sat and was thoroughly impressed! This was an elementary school event well done. Way to go guys!

There was a great assortment of crafts mixed in with a few home based business vendors. I was very impressed with the kids' make and take stations which had the kids entertained and crafting.

It was very busy and signage was good. I knew when I arrived that I was at the right place (poor signage is a pet peeve of mine).

There was a great energy, a friendly greeter at the door and even a free entry into a gift basket draw.

A couple of the crafters caught my eye:

Style Art Studio


Gordana of Style Art Studio makes beautiful pendants and earrings -- I haven't ever seen anything quite like her creations.


I was also impressed with her display and packaging -- simple yet effective. I hope you don't mind me showcasing some of your work here Gordana -- I asked for your card at the fair but never introduced myself (I am always self-conscious about doing so). She was very friendly (I'm always surprised by artists who seem annoyed to speak to potential customers) and I enjoyed my chat with her.


Woodland Owl Trinkets


Jessica's of Woodland Owl Trinkets bird's nest pendants were adorable and unique.


Although I didn't get a chance to speak with her I snagged her card -- take a look!


Unfortunately I didn't get the card of the creator of the Not-quite-paper towels but I am intrigued and will probably pick some up next time I see them. Have you guys seen these? Reusable cloths snapped together that you put on a kitchen paper towel dispenser.

Anyone else get out to crafting events? Would love to hear about them!

I made it there too, and it was a lot of fun. :)

I attempted to follow you on twitter, but the follow link at the top right of your page doesn't work.

Thanks Erin -- that's a magical Twitter Button lol -- not sure how it appeared there! Must be built into the template for the blog. I actually don't have a twitter account for BC Craft Fairs -- only a personal twitter so I'll take a look at the template and remove that!

Thanks for the heads up!
