Nevada City Magic - Bizarre Bazaar Part 1

What a day we had yesterday! It was the Nevada City Winter Bizarre Bazaar and it was so jam packed with funness that i hardly know where to begin.

arriving in our corner...Velvet Leaf and Moonshine Junkyard.
We got there early in the morning after a slow misty rainy windy dramatic drive through the winter elfinland that is the canyon between Placerville and Nevada City.
In our little modern sleighs full of accoutrements, dresses, sweaters and shawls and ponchos and all the fixins.


I don't have time to write all about the magic of this day as I am heading off for myriad errands and bookstore employment.
But I thought I'd give a quick glimpse into our little shop.
We were lucky to get the corner booth at the Miner's Foundry (coolest old building in the world) so that our booth felt almost like going into a little shop all its own.

Filled it up with all manner of goodies, brimming over with handmade and vintage lovelies.
addie made her "blunders" (bloomers/underwear) which are the cutest things on earth and totally addictive when you start wearing them.
she also made an assortment of beautiful headbands from vintage crocheted pieces and lace.

i was so incredibly lucky to be boothmates with becky! 
even as her friend and frequent visitor to her house i had no idea how much wonder her vintage collection included! it is vast. as we set up my eyes were boggling out of my head. and i thought i had a lot! 

she brought her own Velvet Leaf designs too...these new capes she made are super adorable and made from recycled and organic materials.


vintage clothing was coming out of our ears.

darin made my little sign, complete with scary (?) witch face and goblins. he's a funny one.
i loved my little sign tho.

oh what a day. and now another crazy day begins!
i'll be back later with tons more pictures of the adorable folks of the crafty vintagey nevada city world.
