One of my favorite things to do when I'm at any fair is look at all the handmade booths. But I especially enjoy looking at the crafts at the Maker Faire for obvious reasons. Here are a few pictures I snapped at the Bazaar Bizarre tent at the fair.
Pictured above are some mushroom jars by the artist Laurel Begley. I liked how all her pieces were bright, cheery and had a touch of whimsy to them.
I ended up purchasing one her small plates. I think it makes a nice little card holder. To see more of Laurel's work, visit her Etsy store.
To see more of Katy Kristin's items, visit her Etsy shop.
. . . this robot instead! This is also a robot that you construct yourself only it is made up of wood and paper. The company that makes them is called Play-Deco. To see more of these craft kits, please visit Magnote.
This is a very small look into the handmade crafts at Maker Faire. If you would like to see more, Agnes Niewiadomski has a great write up with lots of pictures over at the Make: Craft blog. You can also see more of the vendors at the Bazaar Bizarre site.
