Like all fairs you can find the typical silver jewelry booths, t-shirt and hat vendors, posters and wood carvings. I always go with a mission to find local, handmade and unique goods. Here are few that I found today ...
Shiny Silver large button ponytail holder
Hummingbird ornament hand beaded by local artisans from Guatemala
A portion of their proceeds are donated to the Friendship Bridge, a non-profit micro credit organization offering small business loans and education to underprivileged village women in Guatemala.
Hollander wood earrings
Green Tree Jewelry
San Diego based company that creates affordable fun jewelry from renewable resources and recycled materials in the USA.
I also picked up some delicious white chocolate macadamia nut toffee from The Toffee Box and some oven baked Honey Peanut Butter dog cookies from Beggar's Bakery for Chloe.
Don't worry if you missed the Carlsbad Village Street Faire today because the Queen Bee Market is on Friday, May 6th & Saturday May 7th at the Del Mar Hilton. This market will feature 50+ handmade vendors and a portion of the proceeds will go to local San Diego charities.
