This weekend there is a fabulous event happening in Santa Monica at the airport. In one of the airplane hangars there are locally handmade artisan items of all kinds on display for purchase and it is a feast for the senses.
I went with a girlfriend - of course! - and we had the best time ever. There was jewelry, purses, hats, scented candles, delicious food, shoes, scarves, home decor, and yes, even handcrafted spirits. With a terrific DJ spinning tunes and creativity everywhere you looked it was very inspiring.
Here are links to just a sampling of all the wonderful vendors who were fantastic:

When I got home I had to make something and I felt inspired by the beautiful delicate necklaces I was seeing made with seeds beads and tiny faceted stones in a number of booths. So, Fifi has a couple of new necklaces to sport - at least for a little while...
