Crafty Mart

  picture care of Jessica, here

Crafty Mart is an awesome gathering of Akron-area artists, described as idiosyncraftic craft fair. They have a few events per year in Akron and this passed Saturday I got the opportunity to go with Jessica and we also saw Lyndsey (both awesome fellow Akron-bloggers!). 

I am really into supporting local artists and also local shops. It worked out perfectly that NOTO is located right next door to Musica, where Crafty Mart is held. I bought a few things from the lovely Lauren (NOTO's owner). It was 'small business Saturday' after all.. :) 

I also got a few random items (including a really cool and random Christmas present for the husband..!) at the Crafty Mart.. my favorite of which being the vintage dream-catcher necklace (pictured above) from Barbara of Toony Jewelry. She has the best jewelry, I was so glad nobody snatched up the dream-catcher before I found it :)

You may have seen on Lyndsey's blog that NOTO is having a free special event on Saturday..

 Hope to see you there :)



  1. i love that invitation. it's so pretty!
