Today, my parents, my girlfriend and I went to the 25th anual avocado festival! We had tons of fun, and I got a lot of great ideas for next weeks street fair. Oh yah, if you happen to be in the neighborhood of Thousand Oaks, California, come on down to the Rotary Street Fair, I'll be there, with a booth and everything. If you can't make it, no problem, there will be tons of photos and a blog entry afterwards!
Anyhow, while we were at the avocado festival, we saw some really neat booths with some cool stuff for sale. And to commemorate the festival, I made an avocado hat!
So check out some of the cool pictures, ideas and neat things I found at the avocado festival!
These cute key necklaces are a handmade product of Lynne Hinz, who owns Maji Designs. I thought they looked really well made. You can find more of Lynne's designs at majidesigns.com
This woman made a very unique type of jewelery that I have never seen before. She grew very tiny flowers and then solidified them in glass to make necklaces and rings. It was really amazing to see, and then look closer and see actual flowers in the jewelery. Very neat. A link to her site coming soon.
This booth made really cool metal sculptures. They were very detailed and included bugs, animals, vehicles, and tons of syfy creatures like preditor. It was actually pretty neat. You can see more of Metal Soul's work at metalsouls.com
So we had a really great time at the 25th Annual Avocado Festival, saw some great crafts, got some good ideas, and ate some awesome food. If you're ever in Carpinteria in October, make sure you get to see the Avocado Festival!
