Creative Ideas from the Pioneer Park Farmer's Market

I spent a great day at the farmers' market and craft fair at Pioneer Park. For once I remembered to bring a camera along to record some of my favorite ideas; for me, expos like this are a way to get some creative crafting inspiration.

These recycled~upcycled cake stands are made from vintage plates paired with crystal or brass candle holders as bases. They'd sell like hotcakes in Los Angeles at a place like the Melrose Trading Post, a weekly flea market, but I'd have to have storage space to hold them....

I loved the idea of making a display from a couple of old doors, hinged together, with grosgrain ribbon stretched between them, and clothespins to attach jewelry or cards.

The most creative idea of the day were these "Plumbers Posies" made from faucet handles painted in bright colors, with a wire stem for planting in the ground! They were selling for $10/$12 each. We do have a plumber in the family, so we'll have to experiment with our own version to give him a chuckle.
