This Saturday at Little Flea: Featured Vendors

Another great edition of Little Flea awaits us this weekend -- rain or shine! As always, we've assembled a top-notch group of vendors bringing you enough quality and quantity to dig into for awhile. Here's a sneak peak at who and what's coming this Saturday.

Barker Bell is determined to save the world, one craft at a time, by creating unique repurposed and upycled handmade goods. "Viewing the world through brass goggles with upcycled lenses offers me a unique perspective that helps others see the potential beauty in their trash. A bit like a time-travelling Dr. Frankenfurter, I create steampunk, mixed media, and collage pieces with a unique twist that are reflective of my sometimes warped and twisted view of the world."

Recently launched Verdure Magazine is dedicated to sustainability and community in Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania. Come meet the folks behind the magazine and pick up a copy ($1) of issue one, which has a special focus on green initiatives and businesses in Lawrenceville.

New to the market: Upcycle Fiber Arts. Beth Ketterer's imaginative work utilizes recycled and discarded items turning them into unique and innovative art, decor and fashion accessories.

Ken Roberts (an '09 pioneer Little Flea vendor) will once again share his awesome African-American photo collection and his deep knowledge of the subject. Stop by, have a chat, and take home a bit of history.

Kali Gonzalez from Vehement Romantic makes her debut at Little Flea this Saturday. Most of her work is related to nature in one way or another, often consisting of leaf skeletons, twigs, feathers, moss, and usually created with recycled materials.

There's lots more: household goods, collectibles, art, organic body care, and ethnic food. Music at the Cultural Corner will begin at noon. See you Saturday.
