Unique LA Holiday Show!

I had a great time vending at the Unique LA Holiday show a couple of weekends ago!

Lots of regulars turned up to say 'Hi' and I managed to get one of my new designs out in time for Christmas :) This one is a bit smaller than the others that I made previously, which took quite of bit of measuring and reworking. But I'm happy with the way that turned out- this can be worn as a button tote or as a zipper-d tote!

Came back from the show exhausted but happy- it was a good show- lots of interesting vendors and customers!

Makes you wonder what kind of shoes she's wearing......

Sneak Peek into some new displays just arrived!

I'd be busy listing these new babies- some are at a really good prices so do check them out over the weekend!  http://www.etsy.com/shop/selinabeadsnbits
great for displaying small cards and photographs- folds easily for storage and moving around at shows
these buckets are great for storing bits and stuff you end up having to use like pens, staplers, receipt books  at shows- also great for stacking books, ornaments too :)
 this bird cage shape 2 level etagere is perfect for adding some height to your displays- hoist it up on a vintage wood crate to give it some more interest with the different textures....
 small mini tray stand- great for showcasing plants, jewelry
my new favorite item- a rooster finial 3 layer cupcake stand- also works beautifully for showcasing some interesting pins or flower corsages :)

Deep Fried Oreo Chocolate Bacon at the Los Angeles County Fair!

I probably chose the HOTTEST day to go to the LA County fair! But I just could not resist the 'deep fry just about anything you can eat' siren call.....  there were lots of crazy looking rides and a really amazing NHRA Motorsports  museum showcasing vintage racing cars.
fun colors taken of a carnival store

deep fried krispy kreme chicken burger anyone? (Listed on the top left hand corner)

carnival store

power puff chickens!

quite surreal- kids were 'zipped' into an inflatable floating ball and were rolling around in it!
Who doesn't need a pink/purple and red stripe racer?

fun american 50s graphics

This looks even more amazing in person!
