DIY Street Fair wrap up

last weekend DIYSF was a total blast! it was a long weekend, and the place was super busy, but it was pure fun. i shared a booth with five lovely ladies: courtney fischer jewelry, all things grow, phantom limb, my marigold, & lish's vintage kitchen. we laughed, we ate, we drank, we sold stuff, we bought stuff, we people watched, we dog watched, we fought a little rain, enjoyed the sun, courtney tried on lish's glasses, shit was expensive even though it wasn't, and there was a crazy flying ant swarm like a scene out of the x-files.

argyle sighting: i spotted A LOT of argyle while i was sitting there! including sunglasses, baby legwarmers, t-shirts, and sweaters.

i bought the coolest paper collage print from detroit artist teresa petersen of the kitsch lab. the one i bought isn't shown on her website, but it is cool! the print features barn owls, cupcakes, a fridge, a forest, and a 1950s housewife. pretty much perfect for my kitchen. she will be one of the artists with studio space at the new pioneer building in detroit, a few blocks over from the russell. check out her studio tour images to catch a glimpse of it! they are having an opening on oct. 2 and you can buy her work there. since she doesn't do many shows i was glad to have run into her. her work will be included in an upcoming exhibition (titled What's So Funny?) at the gallery project right here in ann arbor, and i plan to check it out.
