Right away I ran into four of our customer friends and spotted a few others while taking it all in. I saw lots of fresh faces and ideas. Here are a few of my favorites.
Alchemy Goods, http://www.alchemygoods.com/, had a terrific display of messenger bags, totes, belts and wallets made from bike inner tubes collected at Seattle bike shops. I bought a nifty business card holder from them.
These striking candle holders were created by Red Barn Woodworks, http://www.redbarnwoodworks.com/. (I’m sure the lighted candles made my retired firefighter husband a little nuts!) But I loved their look.
Felted Style, http://www.feltedstyle.com/, had a lovely array of handcrafted wool accessories for the home. Her color selection and the quality of her work were brilliant.
There were a hundred of these kind of artists. Visit the Urban Craft Uprising website to find out about future shows in Seattle, and to receive their emails with all the latest inside scoop.
