Good fun at craft fair Hip & Handgemaakt

Dutch craft market Hip & Handgemaakt is expanding. This year it's in Deventer where it originated and five more towns in the eastern part of the Netherlands. Yesterday Deventer enjoyed this yearly market for the fifth time and it was fun.

There was a nice mix of artists and artisans. Here are some great items.

In Dutch we have a phrase that says that shards bring luck. Studio Waanzin's brooches are called shards of luck. The other brooch, by Sloppop Yeah, is classy.

These adorable felt dogs are made by Jackelien. She can make make one resembling your dog too.

Hedsup makes bags of rubber and felt. They look rough but feel surprisingly soft.

And finally the food stalls were a very pleasant surprise. Bloemopdetaart made my heart jump.
