The Milford Oyster festival 2015

This was our second year doing the Milford Oyster festival in Milford, CT, this festival is SUCH A BLAST! The Annual Milford Oyster Festival committee really does an amazing job and they have been voted the 5th best Oyster festival nationwide. The Arts & Crafts show features over 200 artists and artisans and is also considered one of Connecticut’s largest Arts & Crafts Shows! Admission is FREE and they have so much free entertainment (last year they had Bret Michaels!!) including the Gin Blossoms this year. The arts and crafts show is set up on the beautiful green plus there is a car show, a children’s stage, events in the harbor, and more. It’s only a one day event, but brings in over 50,000 people. We met so many great people, thanks to everyone that came out to see us! Here are some of our  pictures from this year’s show.

The window mirrors (above) were pretty popular. We only brought 4 with us and they all sold. We purchase our windows and doors from an architectural salvage warehouse and many of them are quite old so they tend to have a ton of character. The mirror we use is 100% recycled, from old bathroom vanities and such, usually about 1/4″ thick so these are quite heavy!

Kantha quilts (pictured above), a centuries old tradition, are handmade and painstakingly hand stitched in Eastern India from layers of 100% recycled sari cotton. These are highly coveted for their beauty, intricate designs and wonderful colors and textures. Each one is completely unique from the next, with endless combinations of patterns and colors. They are often thought to bring luck and protection. These are wonderful on the end of a bed or draped over a couch or chair and were our best seller this year!

This year we featured many of our re-purposed bags as well as some pillows, Kantha quilts, jewelry and some home decor wood work including mirrors made from very old farmhouse windows and doors. The grain sack pillows (below) were a big hit as well as the military bags.
