Flock & Gather: Spring Market 2013

This weekend I went to the Spring Flock & Gather Handmade Market. I found so many goodies for myself this time because it's not Christmas and there is no need for gifting at this moment. I am always amazed by the businesses that are at the market, and I love supporting handmade -- especially when it's local. Believe me, if I had $1000 in my pocket, I would have bought something from every shop!


My sparkly purple nail polish from Pirate Polish.

Pirate Polish has the most amazing selection of glitter-filled nail polishes. I had a hard time choosing one, but I finally settled on Lovandula. Tara told me that it was good for layer on top of nails that already have a colour on them, but that with three coats it would look like it does in the bottle. Sold!


A beautiful bowl from Jay Kimball of Flux Designs.

Jay had bowls with turquoise on the inside that looked like ripples in the water. They were absolutely beautiful, but I was drawing to this yellow bowl. He said he worked really hard on finding a way to use the glaze so that it would sit perfectly in the swirls at the bottom of bowl, and he was struggling with making the turquoise. They turned out so amazingly.


A cute little zippered bag from Like a Fox Creations.

Like a Fox donates all of their proceeds to organisations in Africa. My money from the purchase of this little pouch is going to buy medical supplies for the people of Sudan.


The most adorable dog finger puppet from Chicken Tika Creations.

All of Chicken Tika's little finger puppets made me die. I literally squealed in delight at each one as I picked them up. There was a beaver with a cute little tail, an octopus with suction cups on each tentacle, and the cuuutest little penguin, but I had to go with the dog. Just look at the little patch on his eye!


What were you up to this weekend?

  1. Oh my! I think the little finger puppet is my favourite. Sounds like perfect weekending to me - wandering around a craft market. Here - in my small corner of the world - great birthday celebrations for my Father-in-law who turned 70!

    1. It was a fantastic weekend! We don't get many markets around here so I, well, flock to them. Happy birthday to your father-in-law. I bet it was a wonderful celebration :)
