This past weekend I attended the Glitterfest in Santa Ana, California. It is a high-end
hand-made crafts show. I went because I knew Christie from Chateau De Fleurs and
Rita from Mammabellarte were going to have booths there and there was something
I wanted to buy from Rita. It is held twice a year-spring and fall. This was my first time
attending. Here are some of the things for sale I liked and what I bought from Rita.

There were some vintage things like this birdcage.

Gorgeous handmade mirrors. This was $85.00.

There were handmade dolls like this adorable Miss from


Orignial art like this from Christie Repasy.

Stuff  to keep dreams alive.

Lots of Halloween decor.

Handknit hats and purses made to order from The Wet Sheep.

The sign I bought from Rita of Mammabellarte  for my master bath with original rose art from
Christie of Chateau De Fleurs.

The Elks Lodge had nearly a dozen beautiful chandeliers hanging inside.
Not for sale.
This adorable little angel was there.

It was $7.00 to get in. You were entered in a
a  free raffle.  There was free coffee, decaf,
  water and cookies. There was champagne
cocktails for sale in the back of the hall
 with booths to sit in and rest after shopping.
