my favorite booths at unique la spring 2011
Danni from Oh Hello Friend rented all this amazing found furniture for her booth and put it together in such a pleasing way. Not to mention her handmade wares were so lovely as always.
The Fugu Fugu Press booth shared with Ribbit Stopit (below). Their cards and wooden puzzles and animals go so nicely together. We bought a couple of the Mother's Day cards for our mothers. I'm going to have to buy some of those wooden animals sometime. They're so cool!
Rebe makes incredible dresses, coats and other small house ware items that are so detailed and of such high quality. I have been desiring one of her dresses for a few years now. Hopefully someday soon... Her daughter, Hillery Sproatt, makes amazing embroidered house wares and drawings. I'd really like to own one of her original drawings.
Wolfum has amazing textiles and prints on wood items such as coasters and animal bookends.
Sass and Peril make cute tote bags and prints from their simple yet striking graphics.
These Lulu Dee and Homako booths are not related I just happened to have them both in the same picture. Lulu Dee makes these adorable prints while Homako creates awesome jewelry pieces out of felt and other materials.
Terri Planty makes sweet terrariums with tiny people in them. We bought one for Malachi's mom.
I bought a teacup from Eri Sugimoto's booth. She and her partner make the most beautiful ceramics and they are both so nice.
Last but not least, my friend Abby's booth called Bedford Falls Headwear makes gorgeous fancy headwear pieces and created an amazing booth (which I failed to get a good picture of) kind of on the fly while visiting her family here (she brought all her goods from New Orleans).
A couple of my other favorite booths were Kevin Tong Illustration and GreenAid who make seedbombs and super cool sling shots.
