TEXTRIX .... is the female form of weaver, in latin!!  I just about freaked when i found that out.  A perfect fit, me being a weaver (that's one of my handwoven tapestry classic car pics to the left - any chance to promote promote promote... Tongue) and a curvy female form.  Plus, I love the suffix -trix added to just about any word... besides the obvious ones, NAVIGATRIX is one of my faves!

there is also a lovely spider in England called Textrix Denticulata.  I am quite partial to spiders, and it sounds like one of the best Evil Villainess names, ever!!!

Just call me Tex...
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: How to find craft shows.. and some more questions on: March 14, 2005 09:47:36 PM
A good place to look for list of craft fairs are craft councils.  I'm not sure how it works in the US, but in Canada, each province has Crafts Council.  I live in BC, and the Crafts Association of BC (where I've volunteered for 6 years, and am now lucky enough to work at) publishes an annual Craft Shows Guide.  Its a listing of all kinds of Craft Fairs, everything from community centres to large-scale wholesale fine craft shows.  It is free to members, but available to the public for a small fee.  Other provinces publish these too.  Maybe there are some state organizations who do as well.  check out the links, they may help, if not just inspire...

There's been a bunch of great suggestions already, but this may be worth checkin out too.
http://www.secondhandsavvy.com/ .  They host the 'Secondhand Safari' which is a bus tour, complete with shopping time (yay!), of secondhand shops around town.  Also, my sister, the queen of finding everything for under $3, swears by the Wildlife Rescue Thrift store at Granville and Drake downtown.  For outside the city limits, I've had a blast at the Value Village in Clearbrook (past Chilliwack).
Good  Luck Thriftin' !!
