Shopping at Home County Folk Festival

Home County has always been known to get a variety of high-quality craft vendors, and I like to wander the booths looking for possible additions to my wardrobe.  Andrea Pope, of Lumiere Designs, is a regular vendor at Home County with her "sculpture wear".   Her dramatic neck pieces and ear ornaments are for women who don't mind being the center of attention:
Andrea Pope, wearing, and surrounded by, her unique designs.  I love the ear/face piece she is wearing, and have tried on a couple of them, but they don't work as well if you wear glasses.  To see more of her designs, check out her website.

I have a rather sizeable collection of coats and jackets (how anyone can get through a Canadian winter with only one winter coat is beyond my comprehension) and am especially drawn to ones in unusual colours with details like oversized pockets or collars and eye-catching buttons.  Needless to say, when I came across these coats at the booth Designs by S.A.D., I was a little bit in love.  They are made from sweaters and coats that have been taken apart and felted, then pieced together into a one of a kind jacket.  The buttons are also recycled, many of them from the 1940's.

  3. In olden times, wearing fine jewellery was limited only to the wealthy and the powerful. However, modern technology has allowed for the mass production of beautiful and high-quality pawn shops in scottsdale az pieces. Thus, fine jewellery has become a means of expressing taste and style instead of just a statement of wealth.

  7. You may have recently decided to upgrade your outdated dining room with new buffet furniture, and you've heard that you will probably get the best deal if you shop online. The new trend in shopping for buffet tables has gone virtual, with many retailers taking their goods to sell online. As convenient as it is to shop online at home and save yourself time and money, it can also be a little scary. How can you protect yourself from the security threats and disreputable businesses on the Internet? Just use your common sense as you would out there at a traditional store and thoroughly check out who you are doing business with online. Pakistan Furniture Exhibition

He bought the perfume online by just spending Rs 300, which on the display of some stylish store at a shopping mall would definitely price anywhere between Rs 500 - 700.
