Today and this weekend is the Gem Faire at the OC Fairgrounds and I'm hoping to find some steampunk components for jewelry and costuming. I'm sure other artists will be looking for the same thing. I normally go on Friday to get first dibs and to get in free and get free passes for the weekend. But my boyfriend wants to go to so we are going tomorrow instead and paying the gate fee to get in.
I think I should also be making regular visits to new Goodwill across the street and the Salvation Army down the street for things like vintage jewelry and chains and old vests and lace.
