Home Based Jewelry Business

http://www.squidoo.com/homebasedjewelrybusiness I thumb this down, though I worry it’ll make me look like a big meanie. I organised a craft fair last year, and more than two thirds of the applications were jewellery. Of those, more than three quarters was completely indistinguishable as individual work. My concern is that people reading this will be caught […]

carringtons reviews – StumbleUpon

http://carrington.stumbleupon.com/review/6993075/ My pal Carrington (AKA “Helper Elf #4”) gave yesterday’s Last Minute Craft Fair some mad last-minute-y props. (Or would that be “proms”, for promotion?) This was my first attempt to organise an event, and I’m happy to report it went off with only a few hitches – a “bisexual” sign, some early arrivers, a […]

http://www.luvmac.com/gallery.html I’m forced to shake my undertalented fist at another successful silkscreener, Luvmac, taking part in the LMCF. Her shirt designs are like Threadless without the attitude, and with a touch of “haphazard” thrown in for good measure.

Kim Kutner Illustration and Design

http://www.kimkutner.com/ Kim Kutner is another soon-to-be alum of the Last Minute Craft Fair. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to link to any of her twee artwork as it’s all hosted off-site from kimkutner.com, but trust me – it’s great!

http://www.akaclothing.ca/AKA_Gallery.htm This Last Minute Craft Fair exhibitor is our answer to anyone who claims that no self-respecting man attends craft fairs. We claim that men with no self-respect could attend our craft fair and buy some self-respect. AKA Menswear sells nifty-in-the-extreme men’s shirts and accessories cobbled together from vintage clothing. It’s funky, sexy stuff!

http://www.vintagelove.ca/plates_atHome_2.html Vintagelove represents a growing trend amongst women of a certain age; mocking the male cultural hegemony of the 1950s by enthusiastically embracing its iconography (cf. Anne Taintor). With these funky light switch plates, you can literally turn out the lights on the kitchen prisons where our mothers and grandmothers paid their debt to a […]

Welcome by DesignbyDeean on Etsy

http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=92310 Designs by Deean will be bringing her sewn goods to the fair. I’d bring my own sewing work, but sock monkeys that leak stuffing and punctured thumbs probably won’t sell as well as Deean’s purses and baby blankets.

http://www.pixiefashions.com/hairaccessories2.html Fearless prediction: Pixie Fashions will clean up at the the LMCF. Not only is their stuff incredibly witty, I believe there is a huge population of Goths out there whose black-vinyl Xmas stockings have seen better days. (The real money’s in upgrades!) I, for one, will be buying vast quantities of their stuffed-corset Xmas […]

http://www.fabiennegood.com/pics/sing-1d.jpg Fabienne Good is another of our crafters who will be able to hear my gritting teeth from across the room. Unlike me, she clearly managed to master the art of silkscreening. She also has the element of funky which eludes me.

http://www.spunkykitty.com/critter-hats-c-1.html?page=2&sort=20a Spunky Kitty holds two interesting records in WhoGivesAShirt-land: She was the first Stumbler ever to give my StumblePage a thumbs-up, and she was the first vendor I recruited for the LMCF. Any Stumblers dropping by the fair who’d like to say hi to me should look for the chubby, ecstatic nerd wearing this hat: […]
