On the Road - Arts Fest Beverly - MA

A gorgeous day, a street lined with talented artists, delicious food, and tons of visitors. These are the perfect ingredients for a springtime street festival. This past Saturday was my second time participating in Arts Fest Beverly in Massachusetts and I enjoyed the event from beginning to end.
Arts Fest Beverly 2013 - Beverly, MA
A gorgeous day with a big crowd
One of the best parts of doing a show is seeing friends. I had a late drive into Beverly on Friday night and was welcomed by warm hospitality, yummy desserts, and great conversation from the one and only Jen Gubicza of Zooguu. It was great seeing her new dinosaurs in a variety of sizes and colors. Her little spikey stegosaurus was my fave. Abby Berkson of Abby Berkson Ceramics was there with her husband Erik. Speaking of dinosaurs, she had new adorable mugs with two entwined, in love brontosauruses. Carrie Wagner of SepiaLepus was there with her husband Jim and dog Franny. She hopped up and greeted me with doggy kisses (Franny, not Carrie). I adore her new hand painted, woodcut narwhale with unicorn pilot. Just click here, and you'll see what I mean!

I enjoyed seeing customers, both old and new, at Arts Fest Beverly. I was pleasantly surprised to meet a bunch of ladies who also collected Bakelite and Lea Stein jewelry. I could talk vintage plastic for hours! By the end of the day, a nice variety of pieces went hope with shoppers, including pinback button necklaces, blinking eyeball necklaces, lockets, and Fun 'n' Games rings.

I was wearing a protractor necklace with a creepin' brassy centipede and colorful plastic bubbles. Before long, It crawled right off of me and onto the neck of a happy customer.
The centipede crawled from one gal...
to another!
