Have you "Met" These Stylish Folks?

Since the Metropolitan Artisans' Market opened back in April, I have featured some of the vendors and their eclectic style on this blog.  I find the Market is one of the best places to find people who have adopted the style philosophy of "dress for yourself, not to look like other people".
Erin is not one of the regular vendors at the Met, but she took over a table for her business, called Scissorkix, for a couple of weekends, and I fell in love with the adorable little buttons she makes and sells.  I defy you to not find one that speaks to you, no matter what your personality.  She has an Etsy store where you can purchase her creations, including copies of her zine, Daisies and Bruises.

Amber is the friendly face of Jackpot Vintage.  I've found a few gems amongst her stock of clothing and knick knacks from decades past, most recently a beautiful wool cape that was made in Wales.   I liked the mix of the sparkly silver fabric (my photo doesn't do it justice) and the classic cut of the dress she was wearing on this particular day.  The black cardigan and tights tone down the sparkle for daytime, but without the sweater, and with sheer stockings and higher heels, it would be great for a night out.
