My understanding was that it would always be on the last weekend of the month.  If it's different than that I don't know!  I wasn't able to make it to May's because I was at Ladyfest Ohio.  But I'll let you know if I hear anything about it going on this weekend....

Hi Everyone!

I should have posted this a lot eariler, but I've been busy!

Anyway, my pal Erin and I (Miss Chief Productions) went to the Bizarre Market and it was indeed great.  It was our first time in Richmond and I'd say it was worth the trip.  There seemed to be a constant flux of people and we sold a fair amount of stuff, (and then promptly spent all our earnings on all the other awesome stuff there was to choose from!).  We traded with some people too which was great.  I really like the idea of bartering.  There was a really nice variety including screenprinted, handmade and altered/reconstructed clothing, buttons and accessories, zines and artists' books, fine art/paintings, music, felt flowers, hmmmmmmmm I'm probably forgetting stuff.  But my point is that you should all mark your calendars for the end of June and it's worth a trip whether you would be going to buy or sell!!

73  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Southwest / Pittsburgh Bizarre Bazaar-esque craft show on: March 20, 2004 12:24:18 PM
Hello again!

I have been talking with a cool gal named Gloria who is really interested in doing a craft show here in Pittsburgh like the Bizarre Bazaars/Markets/etc in other cities.  If you are a Pittsburgh crafter and would be interested in being a part of a local craft/diy/art fair, please email her at [email protected].  So far we've talked to several people who are interested and we figure that if the organizational duties were split up, they wouldn't be too unwieldy for any of us.

Also, have any of you checked out the Hipster Flea Market?  I wasn't able to go today, but I'm hoping to check it out tomorrow...let me know if any of you went.

Hi everyone!  Haha, I realized just now that my last post wasn't very clear.  This event is in PITTSBURGH.  I just called for more info and the setup fee is $10 per day, it's from 8 to 4 each day so you should get there around 7/7:30 to set up, and you could go either Sat/Sun if you wished.  I just heard about this, so I don't know how well it's been publicized, etc, but I think I'm gonna be there.  Let's represent!!!!

Hipster Flea Market...
http://www.thisishappening.com/EventPage.php?curObj=6259&show=profile

lamps, savvy, video games, atomic, music, fly, gas station attendant
uniforms, cool, curiosities, righteous, trucker hats, hip-hop, construction
worker uniforms, deck, archaic horn rimmed glasses and nerdy librarian
shawls, mighty, bobby socks, bee's knees, poodle skirts, stylin, beat up
cowboy hats, jiggy, naked people.

"...see, the hipsters have lost all context of reality...and this is dirty
territory, eye agree, because eye like listening to music walking down a
city street, hell, eye like looking at a fucking tuba, eye like carhart
pants, eyem not an outspoken advocate for the poor & homeless, eye like
'bohemia', but at some point, eye think we must all come to grips and
realize that this stuff is no more REAL than the name 'Bob' embroidered on
the 1967 pep-boys button-up shirt purchased by an Oberlin fine arts graduate
named Dave who's never changed a car's oil in his life. But here eye am
again, preaching to the choir..."

Hi!  I'm just writing to say that I'm a Pittsburgh crafter who would definitely make the couple-hour trip to Cleveland for such a fair.  I bet there are a lot of people within a radius of a few hours who would love to attend as well.  When I first heard about the Bizarre Bazaar I was so jealous!  Pittsburgh has many Arts Festivals, but they all have really prohibitve vendor's fees.  I have sold my stuff at La Superette in NYC, there I believe the organizer took 10% of all sales to split between her and the gallery at which it was held.  I just wanted to say Hello and let you know that you can count me in for things like publicity here, or anything else you might need help with!!

Wal-Mart and Michael's usually have an assortment of round magnets for pretty low prices.  I got a pack of 50 1/2" diameter round magnets for about $5 or $6, so that's 10-12 cents apiece.
78  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Button / Badge / Pin Makers on: January 30, 2004 11:27:19 AM
Hi everyone.

I'm a bit of a button fiend.  I am really interested in this thread because I have a couple of Badge-a-Minit machines.  I have used my 2.25" hand press to make thousands of buttons, with no problem.  So it was natural that I would trust their 1.25" machine.  I have a hand press and the tabletop/bench-press thing--no mechanization, you press it down yourself.  And I have tons of problems.  As was mentioned above, I end up wasting a lot of parts from failed attempts.  I feel like I know how to use Badge-a-Minit's goods because I have had such success with the 2.25" machines, but the 1.25" is really depressing.  I don't think it's something like "getting the hang of it" because that would happened by now.  So is this Dr. Don's thing a good investment?  Does it ever mess up?  Is it hard to load?  I watched the video on their site and it looks easy, $200 is a lot for me right now but the parts seem inexpensive and i just want something that works, mostly.

Any words of wisdom would be appreciated!!
