Bat's Day Holiday Black Market – My faves!

So, if you missed out on the fantastic holiday shopping of handmade items, and buying direct from the artist, you still have a chance! There was so much talent and beautiful things at the Black Market, but there were some that really appealed to me. Here is a synopsis of the ones I couldn’t help but share with you, in the off chance you would want to support these artists and crafters.

Check out their sites, if you dare. You might find yourself ordering wondrous things for friends and family after you’ve fulfilled your visual desires.

Of course, Sarah E. Kushner’s booth of art at the Black Market Holiday Event in Anaheim, California this weekend. A fantastic artist, and wonderful friend.

Here is Sarah with the sweet CRANIE-YUMS and their booth. They were right next to us, completely adorable, kind, and if I had hair you know I would be sporting one of their bows. Those mustaches are their creation as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

Abby Belle and her world of characters. These aren’t your grandma’s figurines, awesome they may be. Abby Belle’s are apparently paper-craft. However, I speculate they are made of magic. Hopefully these photos do this adorableness justice.

I am not done yet with beautiful things that must go on your head: The creations of Christal Blu! Although she does not appear to have anything available in her Etsy shop, I’m sure she does custom orders. I hope some of these photos showcase the a-la-ka-sass of these hats!

Flip N Tribal by JoDee Ewing: Think punk, lace, and belly dancing. Such luscious and amazing pieces. I got to chat with her a bit, and her genuine love of her work and textures, colors, and all that is fabric were quite apparent. What I really enjoyed were her hand dyed pieces. I love color to a crazy degree, and her choices were simply divine. For example, she hand dyed a color that blew my mind: a soft, antique rose pink that is also rich and dense with itself. Basically, a saturated soft hue. Amazing.
