Kris Kinder Market in Calontir
Well, this didn’t go well. I’m a delinquent blogger. So many pictures for your viewing, so little time during the holidays.
Earlier this month I went to Calontir’s Kris Kinder Market event, again. It’s my favorite indoor event. Who doesn’t like to shop and visit with friends?
Here are a few of the many photos I snapped while browsing the wares for sale.
At Avalon Oddiments I found a friend. Along with the SCA garage sale items and knit fingerless mitts, hats, and socks, there at ease in her basket was Buttercup the comfort cat.
I found Lord Garren of Ashton Tor had added something to the inventory of the many looms he sells. He now makes and sells wood textile stamps. A wonderous idea. You can choose from his many pre-made options or custom order your design.
The stamped pattern looks smashing painted on whole cloth fabric or to spiff up that boring plain garb you already have. You know, that thing in the back of your closet.
But at Kris Kinder, there’s so much more going on than shopping. Besides multiple meetings, you see people working on their crafts.
This Lady is carding fiber. She sells it in her stall.
There are artisans everywhere. Here’s an embroiderer in the hall.
And a couple by the Christmas tree busily weaving wire.
And the spinning wheel keeps on turning, even through court.
