Finds by Strange Folks! Fab Finds on Aloha Friday - 9.24.2010

Happy Aloha Friday, folks! 

Based on my previous post, I was curious to see the vendors featured at this weekend's Strange Folk Festival.  Here are some very cool artists I found from the Strange Folk website who currently are on Etsy! 

1:  Welcome Fall with a Brilliant Yellow Leather Journal - Eco Friendly by Binding Bee
This vibrant handstitched leather journal is perfect for jotting down your thoughts.  However, I think I would spend a lot of time staring at how beautiful it is though. 

2:  War Buddha Print on Extra Long Asphalt Color Jersey Scarf by Baretree
Bare Tree has a host of unique designs that make a statement.  Fun designs with a conscience. 

3:  Striped Cutting Board by Newberry Furniture
Amazing craftsmanship for your kitchen!

4:  Chicago Flag Crochet Round Recycled Area Rug by Ekra
Upcycling is a huge theme for quite a few artisans at Strange Folk.  Ekra's collection of crocheted rugs are a perfect example of this.  Why not give recycled fabric a new life?

5:  Coffee and Conversations Upcycled Farmers Market Tote by Greenie Bean Recycle
I am a coffee freak. I thought this was way cool.  Greenie Bean Recycle's upcycled market tote is definitely a conversation-starter. 

6:  Made to Order 16oz. Cup, Heart Anatomy by Circa Ceramics
Sorry folks, coffee again.  I heart coffee, what can I say? 

7:  Roscoe Recycled Glass and Felt Bracelet- Cayenne by Muggy Tuesday
Muggy Tuesday reincarnated glass and wool into this beautiful bracelet. 
8:  Small Halloween Dish by Jools Magools
I love the fall colors molded into this dish.  Perfect for the upcoming season! 

9:  Mixed Metal Tree Branch Necklace by Factory Girl Ashli
Inspired by nature, Factory Girl Ashli uses vintage items and creates fabulous adornments.

10:  Handmade Grocery Bags- Set of Two with Carrying Case by Clever Betty
When I go to the grocery store, I never come away with just one bag of groceries.  This handcrafted set of bags is perfect for your trips to the nearest grocer and is very stylish too.

All of these fabulous artisans and their goods will be at the Strange Folk Festival this weekend.  Don't forget to head on out there and support indie handmade!

Happy Aloha Friday!
