Let me tell you what an amazing weekend this show was ... ! Friday night started as a disaster because I didn't think I was going to make it. Mike was playing drums at a gig and I didn't have anyone to take Gwyn, but my dad came to the rescue and it ended up to being the best night!
There was some great Intermixamania shwag. I got one of the posters.
My wonderful table-neighbor Shandra of 'Head in the Oven'. She takes vintage linens and hand embroiders pop culture lyrics on aprons, tablecloths and pillowcases. SO gorgeous! I have one that says "She blinded me with science!"
Across from us were these lovely ladies from I heart arts doing some needle felting. Gotta love the sock monkey making a pass at the angel lady!
The lovely Mel of DizzyDame. She was making a wool cowl to pass the time and I couldn't NOT take it home! My new favorite piece, I will show you pictures when I take them (:
Some great Pocket Monsters. I got one called Marley for Gwyn.
Acid Man has some great strange products
I loved the machine motorized art by Ray Peterson. Each piece could be activated by the viewer by pressing a button that set the piece in motion.
And my little table. I added a few pieces that I hadn't brought to the TAYGC sale to keep things fresh.
We were allowed to hang things on the walls behind our tables as well. I had thumbtacks, duct tape and no level ... so things were a bit wonky, but it was still neat to see my stuff on the walls of a gallery!
I sold the three Building Monsters I brought with me on the first night, so these three were created over the weekend.
During the evenings there was a bar and snacks and a GIANT silver platter of ANIMAL CRACKERS! The greatest.
During the day there was also a letter press tent outside set up by Martha Street Studio, where you could make your own print.
Besides all the amazing things to see, there was music all day/night long from DJ's to punk bands and Leslie Hall who was so crazy!
This was an amazing weekend and a great new event for Winnipeg. I hope to do it again next year!!!
Hope you enjoyed the little tour.
