While I was in Austin, I was able to hit up the Blue Genie Art Bazaar with all of their awesome vendors,
vendors that targeted a younger (hipper?) demographic.
Needless to say, I wish I had the means for a more lucrative spending habit
...but these pictures will have to suffice.
I was pleased by the various jewelry vendors, but I'm always enamored by anything vintage inspired.
I saw plenty of "reworked" or "upcycled" works, which gave me tons of inspiration for future projects.
It also gave me plenty of more reasons to buy the grab-bags of broken costume jewelry I occasionally come across in my thrifting haunts, not that I necessarily needed another reason to spend my money.
These mounted doll heads mixed just the right amount of creepy and cute. I remember overhearing a father explaining to his young child that the doll's bodies were on the other side of the wall. Precious!
Of course, I couldn't resist photographing these feather fascinator hairpieces.
You can also catch a glimpse of my messy headscarf in the mirror.
It was a rushed morning!
These encaustic pieces were simply amazing, incorporating old photographs with actual butterfly wings!
The booth itself was also very nicely put together.
Of course, being the person that I am, I couldn't leave empty-handed. I bought my mom a yummy bar of oatmeal and lavender artisan soap and this cute woodgrain print lunchbag for myself.
I mean, they're practical things! I'm not at fault.
Until next time, ♥.
