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.

  5. Most of us understand jewellery at an emotional level... we understand how it makes us feel, but little about how it is made and the materials it is made from. In fact, it is common and natural for us to judge a piece of jewellery more by its price tag (with cheaper jewellery being less desirable and more expensive jewellery being more desirable) than by all those confusing numbers! However, there's a lot more to know about jewellery than just how the price tag makes you feel. Today we explore the differences between 9K, 14K, 18K and 24K gold. evil eye throw pillow

  11. A shopping mall is a building or several buildings that form a shopping complex. In this shopping complex, there are several merchandisers represented, with interconnecting walk ways that allow the mall visitors to move from one shopping unit to the other easily. Most malls will also have a good and manned parking lot where visitors can park and leave their cars as they shop. There are two different kinds of these shopping arcades, one being the open air format and the other being the enclosed ones. 셔츠룸

  12. It is very usual that the young students get attracted to fashion the most and start following the trends instantly so fashion influences our youth strongly.There should be a right balance between being fashionable and getting away from our roots. They should be aware of the fact that the fashion within limits is admirable but when the limits are crossed, they have to face many problems. 풀싸롱
