Being part of the Ravenswood ArtWalk is always fun.
This year Architectural Artifacts offered their Artifacts Events space to Ravenswood ArtWalk artists, and we were so fortunate to get to be in this spot.
I had never visited the store, but am planning to go back to look at all the things.
How amazing are these finds?
I’ll have to examine light fixtures more closely before I settle on my new upgrades at home.
There are so many large items.
It felt a bit like being in a giant movie set store room.
A vintage piece from Rotterdam.
Sewing aficionados will love this spool receptable.
I had to remind myself to go back to my booth and not start shopping.
Saturday morning was overcast as we set up, once again proving that I should keep my shows indoors.
I set up my table with risers from Aylaâ€™s Originalsâ€™ recent garage sale.
I used nightstands to hold my trees (they’re from Nadeau, for those who kept opening the drawers).
Since it was raining we got an influx of browsers right away.
Traffic was steady throughout the day, with a few people spending time circling for a few hours.
The blue collar everyone always picks up and tries on went to a new home.
The talent is always fresh and creative, and I couldn’t resist this cute handmade book.
Architectural Artifacts also is a feast for the eyes.
In the evening a bridal party passed through for their wedding in the courtyard and upstairs.
We put our booths to sleep and checked out for the day.
The following day more people perused.
It was tough to watch everyone but me make transactions for a few hours, though my view was fun.
A friend brought me a libation that I will not read anything into. 😉
Thanks to that mojo finally in late afternoon people affirmed my presence with purchases as well.
I’m excited that many of my pieces have new owners.
Late in the afternoon the light cast interesting shadows on my table.
Some ornaments were adopted as well.
Before long it was time to tear down and load my car back up.
You can check out next year’s event around August of 2017.
Here’s hoping I get to be in this space again next year.
