I had such a great time at The Dallas Flea
on Saturday! I wish it was there every week! This year I discovered so many wonderful artists and became even more aware of the amazing talent in this city.
One of my favorite finds of the day was f. is for frank.
I am in awe of all of their gorgeous and architectural pieces of jewelry. I even spoke to one of the designers and I might get to do a tour of their local studio for an upcoming DallasMADE post. Fun!
I really loved Modest Ambition's
booth filled with her colorful crochet creations. Aren't her baby ponchos and rose clips completely adorable?
The coolest part about this year's Flea was the mobile shops parked right outside the event. I was really proud of Dallas for being so "with it" and keeping up with the mobile shop trend. ;-)
I checked out the Vintage Mobile
, stuffed with racks and racks of pretty vintage clothes.
The line to grab a bite from Ruthie's Rolling Cafe was so long that I didn't even attempt to tackle it. However, I was more than happy to snap a picture of this pepto-pink food truck!
Last, but certainly not least, I was so happy to see the Dowdy Studio Wagon
out in all of its glory. I really love this new trend of mobile vintage and handmade shops. Maybe one day there will be a craft show in a parking lot with all kinds of colorful trailers and trucks peddling their wares. Wait...does this already exist?!
My only purchase of the day was this adorable birthday card from Blue Eye Brown Eye for my best friend's 21st birthday. "Happy Birthday Dear!" ;-)
I'm glad so many of you are enjoying this new series. It makes me happy to show off (and learn to appreciate) my city. Dallas has so much to offer the handmade community...and I'm just getting started! :-)
Did you go to The Dallas Flea this weekend? What are some of your favorite craft shows in your town?
