Tonight I attended the Anthropologie Pop-up Market in Austin. It was such a fun event with ten local artisans represented and selling their art. I bought a print from a favorite artist of mine, Starla Michelle. Her work is beautifully layered, and I was so thrilled to meet her and hear her discuss her work. If you'd like to read more about her process, she recently did an interview here. I also got a floral, leather bracelet from leighelena. If you're not local to Austin, but would like to order from either artist Anthropologie carries some pieces from both of these Austin-based artists online or visit their sites (links provided).
Also, a couple of my friends were in the show as well, Bezaflor and Anna Leigh Jewelry. It was exciting to see them doing so well. The artisan tables were packed all night, and everyone seemed to be enjoying the event!
