Brielle Day!!

Every year, Brielle, a shore town close by home hosts 
"Brielle Day"

Homemade crafts, art, fun stuff for the little ones and
lots of's a wonderful festival with something for everyone.
We go almost every year, it is always held the Saturday 
after Labor Day, when all the tourists have gone for good.

 It was a cool, cloudy day, which was great for me,

 and although it looked crowded, it's a huge festival,
so walking around and enjoying it all was doable for me!

 Who remembers Sarsaparilla??

 This booth was probably my favorite.
Recycled china, I purchased an adorable bird feeder here for twenty dollars.

 Their Facebook page can be viewed here.

 This man's photography was gorgeous...
 he had this large sign displayed on the back side of his booth.

 I loved this was so very unusual.
Art B'Jeweled, her website can be viewed here.

 Beaded By The Beach was another favorite of mine...

 although I am not really a jewelry person, their products were very pretty,
and I loved the way they had them displayed.
Their website can be found here.

 Organic, natural soaps,

hand knitted items by Beach Girl Scarves,
and more homemade soap.

 Lot's of people... 

but see, lot's of room to comfortably walk around.

 This is the bird feeder I purchased, 
made from recycled china.
The jewels are beautiful, with colored roses inside.
The bottom plate is a pretty periwinkle purple.

I purchased two ankle bracelets from Elizabeth,
her website can be viewed here at  Jersey Girl Jewelry
She has made all of my ankle bracelets, I really love her work.

We also picked up some dried herb dip mixes.
Mixing the package contents with 
1 cup of mayonnaise and 1 cup of sour cream
makes a wonderful bowl of dip for dipping just about anything.
We use it for fresh vegetables.

And I picked up these adorable, handmade cards for 4 bucks each.
I don't know how people are able to create theses cards,
and sell them so inexpensively.
These were presented by Greetings By Jayne,
her facebook page can be found here.

I love my takes for the day!!

I wish they'd do that kind of thing in some of the towns around here. Maybe they do and I just don't keep up with the news.

So, the guy who runs all our NY/NJ jobs lives in Brielle..... So cool to see this craft fair!! I love when people find cool, creative things to do by re-purposing stuff. Nice feeder!

Oh my goodness now this looks so worth visiting! So many delightful goodies, and I just bet the photography of things washed up on shore is wonderful.

Wow, I loved all of your finds. I think this looks like a great place to browse through. I loved the china and your bird feeder is cute. The jewelry is lovely and unique. I especially liked the layout of the booth. So often they have them so close it makes it harder to look at everything. I enjoyed looking through all the awesome photos. Blessings and hugs!
