Ypsilanti sure knows how to craft!

Thanks to everyone at the Shadow Art Fair for a wonderful fair experience and lots of reasons to get ridiculously excited for Aug. 5. Stephanie, Christine and I headed over to Ypsi to the Corner Brewery on Saturday on behalf of Handmade Detroit and the DUCF. Not only did we have a great, sweaty time selling our goods, we met a ton of new crafty people and spread the word about the fair. WHICH IS GETTING REALLY CLOSE, PEOPLE! I didn’t know what to expect from the Corner Brewery, but I’m sure everyone else will agree with me on this- there was a great turnout and it was a fantastic way to spend a 90-degree Saturday 😉

Here are a few snaps from the event to give you a flavor of what it was like if you weren’t able to make it:


The Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti. An excellent place for crafts, nifty people, and tall mugs of cold beer.

Inside action at the fair.


Look at this adorable table! I wonder who it belongs to…?!


Proud to be crafters: Christine, Steph, Lish.


Proud to be silly crafters. Oh, the silliness!

And if I didn’t give enough love to our hosts this weekend, make sure to read the bar’s blog and see what others have to say about the fair at their Myspace page.
