Artfest trades are a great combination of color, ingenuity and humor.
The little box with the mermaid on the front had seaglass and this special quotation with handmade papers inside. It's a quote that strikes a note, as I've seen it used as a signature line by Nina Bagley. And very meaningful, thought provoking.
Even when folks had a similar idea, like bottlecaps or glass vials full of sand, the creativity made each one unique and different.
If you spot your trade - leave a comment. And thanks for sharing your creativity with me.
They hold a lot of meaning and memories for me of the fund and excitement of Artfest 2009.
