Favorite Little Things at the BUST Magazine Craftacular

(me and a Bust magazine chick)
Hey Girls,

Yesterday I went to the BUST Magazine Craftacular at 82 Mercer Street in SoHo. And here are some some really awesome designers and artisans that caught my eye:

natural handmae artisan goods for bath, body and home

Handcrafted herbal bath and body soaps, face masques and even makeup remover, http://www.herbanlifestyle.com/

I enjoyed a meatball slider from http://www.mightyballs.com/ meatballs! Also I picked up some mighty hot jalapeño jelly.


Check out:
http://www.seagrapesoap.esty.com/ Sea Grape bath and body goodness.

http://www.junkprints.com/ funky, funky handbags with different textures and personality, limited edition hand crafted products.

http://latheratisoap.weebly.com/shop.html  handmade bath and body products are all inspired by books and literature! See this QUEEN BEE Dry Oil Body Spray inspired by The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd or this ALTER EGO Body Cream - Mr. Hyde version, inspired by Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Yum, check out these Gourmet Chocolate Covered Pretzels, http://www.sweetandsaltybydesign.com/.

The pretty dainty earrings and necklace lockets caught my eye at http://www.vivi-sun.com/.



How about jewelry made out of real fruit?  Well, that's what http://glitterlimes.com/  is all about.

Eco lingerie designer Clare Bare,  http://www.clarebare.com/, not only had beautifully crafted and sewn original lingerie but her models in her look book are also all shapes and sizes which I thought was cool.

I had a nice chat with Nathan James Johnson and Jayson Romos, the designers of The Craftmen, about their handmade, hand-stitched leather wallets, card holders and headphone cases like this one:

Also, check out http://www.looplit.com/, I like these washers looped earrings that I could wear just about everyday with everything. Founded by sisters Hind and Hamsa Baki in 2009, looplit jewelry is designed and created to meet the artistic flair of today’s fashionistas.

These polished wood angel wing necklaces caught my eye at http://www.laurenhaupt.com/

There are some more designers that caught my eye and I will be featuring them later during the coming week, I hope you had a great weekend and that it was inspiring and full of love,

Some craftabulous things there, worth of the Craftacular title indeed. I am going to introduce junk print handbags as an idea for one of my crafternoons.
