UCU Part 2 - Shopping!

Lovely, hand-embroidered brooch from Mucho Design

Attending indie craft markets for me is all about a community coming together, helping support one another, catching up with friends and making new ones. Oh, and it's also about shopping (and getting to meet the people who make the stuff). So, let's just dispense with the more noble reasons for being there and lemme show you all the cool stuff I got! I went kinda crazy this time. The nice thing is, you can sometimes barter and trade with other vendors making it easier on your pocketbook. See my haul of handmade goods here! I link to all of their shops so you can get you some, too. And, be sure to check out the full list of Urban Craft Uprising vendors. You too can buy DIY and $upport independent companies.
