Favorites from the Ballston Arts & Crafts Market

I finally made it to the Ballston Arts & Crafts Market today. It seems like every year, I become aware of it just in time for the season to end (even though it runs from April to October), which, as I realized today, was my loss. It's a small market but I was impressed with the quality and variety of things people were selling.

I especially loved this ceramic kitty from Red & Main because it looks like my real-life kitty. I was tempted to buy it, but unfortunately before I acquire more cute things I need to acquire more flat surfaces to put them on.

I also really liked Katharine Watson's block-printed cards and textiles, Yummy & Company's clay jewelry, Motherbored's recycled computer part pendants, and Ashley Buchanan's hand-cut metal necklaces and earrings.

While I'm on the subject of cool handmade things I've seen recently, I should mention Uncanny Jewelry, whose earrings and necklaces I saw at NOFO last weekend during a trip to Raleigh. I've seen recycled can jewelry before but nothing as pretty as what she makes.
