Southdown Marketplace

We made a family day out of visiting the Southdown Marketplace on Saturday. I must say I was very pleasantly surprised by all the amazing handcrafts. I had not expected there to be such a wonderful selection of vendors. 

We saw so many lovely things……..

We came home with so many lovely things! And found out about many local handcrafters. Best of all, at the one and only vintage booth, I found out about the flea market….. more on that tomorrow!

  1. I can’t believe I missed the yarn!!! I’m still mad about that. I didn’t see the pottery either. I wish I had time to go back through it all without big christmas decorations..rofl

  4. I only got to look around a bit, and I didn’t see the wooden bowls, those are nice! I did pick up a red mug from the pottery booth though, I am really falling in love with pottery!
    And yeah, Southdown is a pretty big craft show

  5. Alaska Native art is ok. Dont getme wrong.. its pretty cool stuff for the most part. But if youve been looking at it almost everyday for 28 years.. it gets alittle old lol. I think my problem is is i need more variety. I can only look at so many seal skin masks with fur around them before they all start to look the same lol.
    Maybe what i’ll do next time there is a craft show going on i’ll take some pics for ya if youd like 🙂
