One word to describe this event would be BLAST! I made a ton of new friends like Bonnie Rue from Model Citizens, I received a lot of love from the local shoppers and even got a change to hang with my favorite Austin Mafiosa's Jennifer Perkins from Naughty Secretary Club and Hope Perkins from Hot Pink Pistol.
The event was full off really cool hand made items! I picked up a business card holder from 11:11 enterprises, a hand painted wooden ring from Pamela Michelle, a killer necklace from Sprout Jewelry and new iron transfers from Sublime Stitching and some kids items from Baby Bolt.
Now it's back to work!

It's been officially 1 week since my trip to Canton, and boy do I miss it already. For those who know me, you would agree that I have a soft spot in my heart for junk!!! Last friday I scored a 1950's kitchen table, which ended up in my sewing studio because I don't eat much at home these days. I also purchased a plethora of vintage hats that I will be restoring for my restored vintage hat collection that will day bu at this Saturdays Urban Street Bazaar. The $200 that I stuffed in my cowboy boot got me a long way in this wonderful wonderland of junk...BUT WARNING! Scooters are all over the place so watch out for your toes...old people tend to get feisty when they have 4 wheels of pure scooter power under them.
That's it for today.....Lovesssss!

The Art Chicas Unidas program is run by La Reunion. The Dallas Craft Mafia will be sponsoring a girl for this upcoming art event. Check it out!!!
WHAT IS IT - ART CHICAS UNIDAS
Small teams of high school aged girls will work with professional women artists selected by jury and create one of a kind art works based on materials from our 35 acres site in Oak Cliff. The finished art works will be on display that same evening and all proceeds from sales go back into the Art Chicas Unidas program. What makes this program unique? This year we are working with Deaf Action Center, socio-economically challenged schools as well as girls that are getting the full art experience like at Booker T. We engage all walks of life and backgrounds and introduce new skills and interests, from photography to guitar to encaustic.
We will honor our Mentor Madres this year with your names across our invitational postcard to the reception. Even if you can't make the reception November 8, please support this program today. Download the form and mail or email back. Deadline Oct 18 to be on the card! Don't delay!
