Craft Fair Finds

It's Saturday and my alarm clock goes off at 6:50 a.m. Ronny is up and about ready to take off for a long day of breeding cows and making rounds...what am I up so early? It's the Craft Fair day! But I want to get an even earlier start so I could go to the gym first and then get all stretched and ready for the event full of ladies pushing each other around the crowded aisles.

Usually, crowds get me anxious. But not at craft fairs because I know it's ok to push and shove. But today really wasn't too crowded and I only bumped into one small girl who happened to be the same height as my elbow...sorry little girl!

But I did find some great finds. First, a knitted earband. I probably could make one myself, but I don't have enough time, especially with my six goals I'm trying to get done before New Year's. I like the little details on this one - and it can go with black or brown - my staples. $12

Being a good K-State girl, I of course had to come home with something purple! I love this little ring. $5...bam! 

The last thing I got for myself were these hand-croqueted dish scrubbers....these are the best and you can't go wrong with $2 ones. I was a little disappointed that two booths down from the one I bought these at, they were selling them for $1. I'm sure these are higher quality though.

My main purpose, however, for attending the craft fair was to get two important gifts for two important people. I came home with three gifts. But I can't reveal them yet!

Now, if only I could have also attended the Holiday Bazaar in Kansas that Lori from Home on the Range Exchange & The Craft Coop was at today!

Wish you could have been there too. I didn't know you crocheted or knitted?! I have one of those headbands, you will look cute.
