UPDATE: the design co-op at the brookyln flea is cancelled tomorrow because of weather! it will resume next saturday. thanks for all the nice comments about the paper chandelier!

this is why i needed the straw straws (i ended up using real straw!)

i’ll be selling a couple of these paper chandeliers/mobiles at the flea on saturday. i wanted to make something to decorate the empty ceiling of the tent. the idea came from this post on laura normandin’s blog. thank you for the inspiration laura! these are quite labor intensive, but a lot of fun too.

it’s a dreary day here… but cozy!

here are some photos from saturday’s flea (taken by rebecca kutys). it was great! aren’t all the colors nice?

we’re just getting warmed up… and will be offering special gifts and new items every weekend– so come by!

i’m looking for straws made of a natural material for a project, and i came across these straw straws from muji that are perfect, but i can’t find them for sale! has anyone seen them in a store, or something similar?

the flea design co-op starts this saturday!

i’m helping organize/curate a new booth at the fort greene brooklyn flea, which will sell products by some of my favorite designers. the section will be run by rebecca kutys of moontree letterpress, and for october we have these talented makers: (photos from top to bottom) marcie mcgoldrick, maptote, lotta jansdotter, moontree letterpress, wayne pate/good shape design, laura normandin, sesame letterpress and my work/lines & shapes.
and there will be some special guest sellers, yet to be announced…

the first saturday, october 10th, lotta jansdotter will be giving away a free goodie with each purchase.

the flea design co-op poster was designed by wayne pate, and will be for sale at the flea for $15 (email me if you are interested in ordering it online and i might be able to arrange it).

hope to see you at the flea!

the book fair was a success… we met lots of nice people, of all sorts, felt inspired by the abundance of amazing books being made by other independent publishers, and actually had fun sitting in one spot for 3 1/2 days straight. thanks to everyone who came by to say hello. and thanks anne, for bringing me homemade pumpkin cupcakes!

i didn’t take enough photos to capture the really incredible work shown at the other tables, so these are some more mundane views of the fair, mostly taken from behind our table. julia did a great write up of the fair here.
