Last Saturday Bell+Whistle attended Craftadian in Hamilton and it was SO MUCH FUN! if you got the chance to come out and shop the amazing talented vendors who participated you probably got a little peek into the new B+W fall/winter '18 collection which will be dropping so soon into the online store. This collection features new hand painted textile designs, newly introduced black vegan leather textiles and the first available vegan leather option for the ever popular Emma bags! You've been asking for this for a long time and I have finally found the perfect vegan leather textile to keep Emma's beautiful slouchy style! Not to mention a few brand new bag styles like the Maya and Mia as well as 2 new wallet styles!
I had some incredible booth neighbours who made the day so amazing that it was sadly over before I knew it *big sad face* including Melinda of Sunstone Jewels who makes the prettiest jewelry! The mannequin who'm she coined "Susie" is wearing one of her beautiful simple gold bar necklaces! My other lovely neighbour was Sarah of My Dad and Me Everyday Ornaments who had the most amazing wood decor and succulent/ cacti. She even let me in on her secret for how she gets the cacti into the planters without getting prickled because I just had to know!
Bell+Whistle Insiders got their $5 off coupon for the show too and it was so nice to see so many Insiders stopping by to say hello! and of course welcoming new Insiders to the family! There was some rain. Ok it was a torrential down pour and I can't say how grateful I am to everyone who still came out to shop handmade and local. It was amazing! and thankfully all of the outdoor vendors fit into the atrium to keep the fun going. The flower wall was a big hit! and these 2 lovelies shared their craftadian finds so perfectly! This is Shelby and her mom who were also the winners of our Instagram giveaway! They won 2 tickets to Craftadian and a $10 gift to use at the B+W booth! photo credit @ilove2clap
