I ate a cupcake from The Cup.
Later I got some bao from Urban Eats Cafe. Now I really want to visit the actual restaurant. I appreciate how Strange Folk seeks out atypical food vendors.
As far as shopping, I started off slowly, with this skull charm from Narcisse.
I don't remember where I got this ring.
Meanwhile you may want to look at the baby alpaca, who took a break from nursing to pose.
I finished by splurging on this hair comb from Isette.
Do you know how hard it is to take a photo of the back of one's head? Damn near impossible. I eventually broke down and recruited LB, which went about as well as you might expect if an early-bird who had been up for over three hours asked a night-owl/Luddite who hadn't yet finished his first cup of coffee.
I committed that cardinal sin of craft shows, I spotted something and decided to make one of my own. Details some other time, but we stopped at The Bead Place (which is also a yarn store) in Fairview Heights on the way home, where I picked up some supplies, and these super-cool mood beads.
So sorry crafter person!
A few other goodies I marked for future wish lists:
- Artwork or jewelery from Sally Harless of Sadly Harmless.
- Homemade dog treats from Sky Blue Morning in Pacific, MO.
Later in the day, I walked to the street festival at the end of our block (ironic, isn't it, that I drove to a different state to attend a festival when there was one at the end of my block?) and spotted this little guy being carried around like a baby.
Lots of drunks wanted to love on Steu, which he hated.
