The weather faked me out a little bit, and it ended feeling more like late summer than early fall, so in celebration of the sunshine and all things summery, I treated myself by ducking down the street and into Rita's for some relief from the heat in the form of a tangerine/frozen custard combination. The season for snowcone-like items has truly come to a close (in my mind, anyway - Rita's is open year-round, and while I might crave a frozen treat in December, it doesn't quite hit the spot the way it does in those summer months), so since I hadn't actually had a real snowcone this year (what a tragedy!), I snuck in this close approximation in early October.
Armed with frozen goodness, I tackled the fair. Break dancers, check.
Adorable one-eyed monster onesies, check. That sounds a little odd, doesn't it? But there were pretty cute, especially when surrounded by other monster cuteness. Monsters seemed to be the theme of the day.
Food-themed cufflinks, check. Hello, who wouldn't want bacon and eggs cufflinks? Or T-bone cufflinks? Pickles? Sushi? All available for the taking. Or...take-out. Yes, cheesy, sorry.
I didn't actually purchase anything (other than food...sounds about right, doesn't it?), but I did grab a few business cards and check out a few websites after the fact to peruse a few options a little more closely. I'm a pretty big fan of Mean Cards and the cool typewriter jewelry from The Weekend Store. Keep it up, Crafty Bastards - you run a pretty snazzy craft fair.
