Font Friday

from the top: Miss EllenPrismREMARK

There is such thing as the perfect font and searching the internet for the perfect font / inspiration for a project is one of the most nerdy things I love to do.  dafont.com is my first stop because it's simple and easy to peruse. But, I usually end up downloading a bunch, only forget that I ever did and never use them -- and a perfect font is something I want to be able to go back to whenever I need it. To make things a little easier, I figured I'd compile my coolest font finds as a reoccurring post.  That way I always have access to them and you can peep them too : )

September's Cleveland Flea

From the Cleveland Flea this weekend:

The September Cleveland Flea was this past weekend and O T L was a lucky participant! This month was definitely the best yet and I feel like the event is really finding its groove.  The crowd was amazing (thanks for stopping to say "Hi!") and the weather was perfect once the sun came out. 

I was put in great a spot in front of the food vendors and bier garden, in between those bright dahlias from Holly Ridge Nursery and a cute vintage tent where I scored the painted donkey. Ode VintagePlayhaus Design, Oceanne Jewelry and Hunt/Gather Jewelry, four of my other favorites at the Flea, were just around the corner. Unfortunately, as the only worker of my tent, I didn't get to stray too far.  But, I was lucky enough to have cool stuff all around me from the get go! I brought a few pieces from the FW13 collection and they were really well received and I hope to have that out by sometime early October (!)

Were you at the Flea this weekend? Any other great vendors that you recommend? I plan of being a part of the OktoberFlea (10/12), but I definitely have to find someone who will help me man the table so that I can check out the rest of the good stuff I've been missing!

If you missed the seeing the jewelry at the Flea this past weekend, you can see me in a few more spots this month:

Sept 19 - Banyan Tree Fall Styling Event - 6 to 9 pm - 2242 Professor Ave
Sept 22 - Sunday Market - 10 to 3 pm - Ohio City
