Bonanza at Cabin Fever

I had the pleasure of going to the Cabin Fever Indie Gift Show yesterday and I thought I'd share some of the hot finds I stumbled upon.  There were close to 80 artists, designers, bakers, illustrators - an inveritable whirlwind of creativity packed into the Cathedral High School Gymnasium.  Here are some of the highlights:

24 year old and Little Rhody resident, Stephen Fitch of Moondust Macarons, has mastered the art of the macaron.  I can honestly say they are light and crispy and très authentique.  Picked up a lovely box for dessert.

For clever and attractive vintage design tees, hoodies, and other great stuff.

I'm such a fan of Leah Giberson.  I first saw her art on a post from beachbungalow8, and then
met her this past Fall, at West Elm's We Heart Handmade Art event.  Not only is she local-Brookline talent,  she's a very warm person and a delight to chat with.  Her work has been featured many times on the blogosphere - and elsewhere, but one can never tire of her appealing photography, paintings, collages, and images.  I find them absolutely captivating.

-And seeing as St. Valentine's Day was right around the corner, a shiny gemstone caught my eye.  Sara Danielle Designs - handcrafted precious and semi-precious gemstone jewelry,  was a lovely place to linger and play dress-up.  Only, it wasn't just dress-up.  I did manage to pick up a couple of gems for myself.  Happy Valentine's Day, Karen.

There were also beautifully designed and handcrafted note cards and prints from everythinglittlemiss -

Following our stroll around from artist to artist, I managed to forget to circle back and grab a couple of crazy-delicious-looking brownies.  I know.  Easy enough to replicate, but these just seemed spectacularly good.  From Yummy Mummy Brownies.

Treats for all the senses.  Cabin Fever was a great indie show and I'm looking forward to checking out more events in the area for handmade artistry.

Thanks so much for the lovely words!

Now I’m kicking myself for not picking up some of those macarons - and they were right across the isle from me!!! I’m happy to say though that my daughter was generous enough to split a brownie with me in the late afternoon! Completely delicious!

I have nothing but crumbs and a half-eaten lemon macaron left. We'll just have to stalk Mr. Stephen Fitch or hope he appears at the next gig.

i didn't know you had met Leah! I love her work. I don't think I knew she was from Brookline either. Or maybe I did. who knows my brain is a walnut this days, rattling around in the old shell.

ok, I have to admit. I rully, rully want to like Macaroons, because artistically, they're so pretty. But I had one once and it gave me such a sugar headache that I have to admire from afar. bit of a macaroon poseur, I am.
but brownies? uh. I'm sold.

I love your blog! But it makes me want to spend money and eat...
Bad. Bad. Bad.
