Multiple vendors are traveling from out of town to sell at Saturday’s event, giving Columbus a chance to see what the national craft scene has to offer. Here’s a look at what to find from five of them.
Valerie Tyler Designs
Tyler, inspired by natural and Asian aesthetics, shapes minimalist mixed-metal jewelry ranging in price from $15 to $360.
Cards, $4 each
This cat’s name is AC (a reference to the “annoying customer” scene in “Clerks”). He loves wearing clothes but hates sitting in Funk’s dioramas, hence the crabby cat face. He’s well-paid in cuddles, though, and you can find him in various scenes of hilarity on his owner’s greeting cards and calendars ($16).
Gracie Sparkles Books
Books, $5 each
These 100-page notebooks by crafter and author Grace Dobush are made from salvaged paper found at various garage sales. She sews the accounts payable folder covers to the paper with colored linen thread.
Kindle/ Nook holders, $50-60
Talia Halliday’s hollowed-out book “safes” are designed to hold everything from plants to clocks, e-readers to flasks.
In addition to the bi-fold wallets, Danni Trester will have checkbook wallets ($22) and pocket-sized notebooks ($5-7).
