I love attending the Bayou City Arts Festival! BCAF is typically held twice a year, once at Memorial Park and once downtown.  I've typically always attended BCAF at Memorial, but last year I attended the Downtown edition for the first time! I really love arts festivals, because I always find unique pieces of jewelry to buy that I can't find in stores! I love paying more for handmade work, versus items that are punched out of machine and are of cheaper quality. I also find a lot of pieces that I would love to buy for my future house! I don't have enough room in my current apartment to purchase all of these cool items, but one day I will. Check out my discoveries from the festival below:

This was one of my favorites booths! I purchased a few pieces of jewelry from Lindsey Designs!
Chevron, Chevron, and More Chevron!



I definitely want a front porch or a backyard patio to one day have these cool wooden pieces of furniture!

I liked these two-sided pieces of jewelry. Design on one side, inspiring message on the back!

I had a VIP Media pass so I was able to access the media area for a break and some refreshments. The entry way to the media area was populated with vintage Bayou City Arts Festivals posters!


I love arts and crafts, but typically at these types of festivals the crafts are for kids, but not this time! This time Tinderbox was on hand to do adult DIYs. I of course had to stop by and design a canvas tote for myself. 

More glass jewelry! I love the hearts. I bought the white one.
I really love these solar system orbs. I would definitely have one in my future house!

Can you see the image?

Just in time for the holidays, Texas themed ornaments.
I think Oak Cliff is located in Dallas!
Cool, but kind of creepy! Check out these fun rings!
Cufflinks. I first thought they were studs!
Look at these fancy cool cutting boards. These are almost too fancy to use. I'd just hang them in my kitchen for decoration.
I don't drink wine, but it's a cool display, right?
Vendors, and Vendors galore!
I LOVE Asian calligraphy. This symbol stands for water!

Japanese symbols for all the elements

Ford was a title sponsor for the festival so they were onsite in full force. After you went around and visited all of their vehicles you could get a free screen-printed T-shirt.

At the end of the night, The Arts Festival presented the first ever Bayou After Dark, featuring Marth Wash!

All in all I had a great time at the Arts Festival! I left with new jewelry, free T-shirt, and enjoyed a great concert!
