Indie Fixx Shop

The last vendor I want to mention from my recent explorations at the Pile of Craft fair a couple of weeks ago is the Indie Fixx Shop. I could have spent hours looking at their booth, and I have spent a significant amount of time on their online shop. The founder of the shop sells other independent artists and crafters' goods. So there is plenty to look at! Jewelry, art prints, household items (I LOVE the block print kitchen towels) and bath items. Here are a few of my faves!

Tiger Lilly Shop

At Baltimore's Pile of Craft, I probably spent the most time talking to the artist behind Tiger Lilly. She is really excited about her work and enjoys scavenging for different products that she can turn into jewelry. She will also be featured in July's issue of Baltimore Magazine and has received some local awards for her work. I was most drawn to her bright little button rings. Most of them are made from damaged kimono fabric.

Her button bracelets are cute, too. And if I wore earrings, I certainly would have picked up a pair of these copper beauties!

Woodkins Dolls

Ever since my son was very young (and before I knew I would have a daughter) I have loved these Woodkins Dress Up Dolls. My daughter is just a little over 2, so she's still a bit young for these, but I'm thinking of getting a set when we travel during the winter holidays. It seems like something that might keep her busy on the plane for a cross-country flight.

T-Shirt Fun

There were two silk-screened apparel booths that really stood out at Pile of Craft last week.

Red Prairie Press has beautiful dresses, T-shirts, scarves and onesies. And all their items were sooooo soft!I really like Spaghetti Kiss, too (although I don't have any pics). I have been eyeing the Robot Blues tee, because it makes me think of my son. Everything of their's was nice and soft, also!
