around town

as you well know there was alot going on around town this weekend. we hit the downtown and art festival this afternoon with a couple of friends. so i have pics and links for you.



cute poster and some bead jewelry at whimsy


if you really love me you will buy me this purse!


what can i say! top row all different kinds of malted milk balls, bottom row gummies of all shapes and sizes, we opted for worms, a family favorite. mundts candies on main street

just for fun! this store is rarely open unless by appointment but it rocks, they specialize in archetectural salvage, you know i love that!

 

artist joan schulte's booth was the one in the whole festival that i loved the best, she told me she prints the photos on transparency film and mounts them to wood panels and recycled, weathered wood floor planks using primer as her adhesive. she pays no mind to nail holes, dings and scuffs and gives it a light sanding around the edges. you cant really see that in her web site but her photos are definately worth taking a look at and although im not too crazy about her cover still life of the creepy mannequin in a hat she has a nice slide show gallery.

sounds like you had a good time.
I would have liked the antique type place too. (it is just my style)
Though the candy store would have been high on my list as well.

chautauqua was so much fun this year since it wasn't so hot for once! :) And you're right, really fun stuff all around town. I checked out that artist's site and she's got some really interesting work...thanks for the link (oh, and I agree about the creepy mannequin!) yikes! :)
