SD ThreadShow at Horton

Thread, a popular 'showcase of emerging fashion' returned to San Diego on Sunday, April 11. It was my first time going to a threadshow since I didn't get to go last year. This time the event took place at Horton Plaza in an old Steve & Barry's department store, which made it easier for me to attend since it was at a venue i knew of. It was pretty fun, lots of vendors, fashion show, artwork, etc, and not to mention a huge crowd of people.

I got to see some pretty booths, one in particular was OhHelloFriend's. Ahh me and my best friend felt like such dorks cause we knew who she was through her blog. It was like meeting a famous person, haha! Her booth was super cute filled with super cute things.
My pictures were kind of lame. There were a lot of people at her booth so it was hard to capture everything ;p
I wasn't sure if i was going to buy anything but my boyfriend told me that i should support her, so i bought these:
2 postcards and a necklace, cuute!
I saw a lot more cute booths, but every picture i took was blurry (there were so many people pushing their way through the crowds, it was hard to get a good picture without someone accidentally walking in). So i took some pics at home.
Bought this shirt from sub_urban riot
the shirt says "this is the place i lay"
and i love the tag. haha "iron if that's your thing. dishwasher safe."
Snagged some cute business cards and stickers.
This definitely inspired me to do a craft show sometime soon. Me and my best friend were talking about doing a craft day where we just sit, talk, make cute stuff and possibly sell at a show together. wooot! my boyfriend even said he'd be there to help. aww!
can't wait for more shows in SD.

Love the pictures from the thread show and what you bought. It is so nice to see what people are buying on the west coast since most of my sales are from that region. Great Inspiration!
