Crafty Supermarket

May 5th was just so many things this year: Cinco de Mayo, World Pilates Day (yes it is indeed a holiday), and Crafty Supermarket.  All the cool kids and awesome Bombshells chose to browse the handmade wares at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center.  We came, we shopped, we showed you how to make pom-poms.  Way more fun than drinking too much tequila or spending an hour in a Pilates teaser position.  (Whatever that is.  Although it does sound provocative does it not?) 

The Clifton Cultural Arts Center is a throw back to a classic style you just don’t see anymore.  But, then again, so are we Bombshells.  The CCAC perfectly housed the legion of artisans.  Like any good party, it was crowded with everyone buzzing about how excited they were to be there.  Our friends made sure to stop by to say “hello” and try their hand at some yarntastic fun.  The wee little Bombshell fans are our favorites! (Shhh.  Keep it to yourself though.  We don’t want any hurt feelings.)  We enjoyed pressing the flesh and sharing our love of fiber art with the shoppers.  Even if they did try to solve the mysteries of our underground organization. 

We classed up the joint too.  Not just with our air of sophistication, but with the nicely yarn wrapped trees outside.  While stitching up a yellow and black striped tree, one Bombshell overheard a child gleefully exclaim, “Look!  A bumble tree!”  This right here is our raison d’être.  We are the patron saints of the slightly absurd and seriously chic.  This is why we love what we do.  We try to bring joy, bewilderment, and a sense of style to an often mundane world.  So stay tuned to see what we have up our collective sleeves next.  You won’t be disappointed.

  1. A knitting guild friend sent me the link to your site. I was at the Crafty Supermarket and saw your work. (Grace Dobush is one of my daughter's close friends and co-workers.) Thanks for bringing smiles to the world.
