I’ll be one of the 100 vendors this weekend at Penn’s Landing in Philly this weekend for the awesomeness that is the Art Star Craft Bazaar.  This year marks their 10th anniversary- this will be my second year participating in this unique and wonderful event. Here’s how you get there!

Yes, it’s Mother’s Day too, so bring the whole family for music, food, crafts and crafty goodness.  Check out the amazing vendors here.  Hope to see you… now, back to work!

Art Star Craft Bazaar recap

Last weekend was the 9th annual Art Star Craft Bazaar at the Great Plaza on Penns Landing along the Delaware River in Philly.  This was my first show in attendance as well as participation and it lived up to all of my expectations right down to the amazing two days of beautiful weather. Sunday was Mother’s Day, so there were a lot of families in attendance making a day of it. Music, food, amazing handcrafted wares, what nicer way to spend time together?

I was fortunate enough to have the amazing Xina, who helped  me out both days. We figured out that her hair matched my ‘new’ curtains!

Surprisingly, I sold only one ‘mother’ of  my vintage dictionary pendants. People were gravitating toward the more unusual words like ‘enigma’ and ‘gracious’ which was a nice change.

This guy hung out in our booth both days- our lucky mascot.

These friends each bought a vintage multi-chained joey necklace.

I debated over buying this awesome card from Blackheart Letterpress for my Mother-in-Law, but decided to go with one of their safer options.

We had really nice neighbors, Everyday Balloons, who drove all the way from Pittsburgh to sell their cool screen printed products. It was their first Art Star too.

The unifying theme of Sunday was Moms and sisters buying companion joey wraps. There was a lot of spirited debate over who got which one.

Now, a quick scramble to replenish inventory and to prepare for this Saturday’s Trenton Avenue Arts Festival!

Art Star Craft Bazaar

The calendar’s filling up!  This was a great weekend for joey because I learned that I will be a vendor at the 6th annual Art Star Craft Bazaar in Philly.  SO excited about the opportunity to participate in this show.

In case you’re not familiar, the spring Art Star Craft Bazaar is an outdoor art/craft show that is organized & juried by Philadelphia’s Art Star Gallery & Boutique.  Over 140 local & national artists have been chosen to set up shop & sell their wares at the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing, right along the Delaware River. The event is being held on Mother’s Day weekend this year, so come to the show to pick up a perfect, one-of-a-kind gift for mom or better yet, bring your mom to the show for a fun day on the waterfront!

The Details:

When: Saturday, May 12th & Sunday, May 13th, 11-6pm

Where: The Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing, which is along Columbus Blvd, between Walnut & Chestnut Streets, Philadelphia, PA

Take a look at the amazing artists and makers that will be there that weekend.  I am honored to be included among them.
