My first weekend visit to East Passyunk Avenue was awesome. In addition to sampling yummy food during the Flavors of the Avenue event (more on that later!), my family & I got to experience Crafty Balboa, a South Philly craft show. It was a beautiful day & a great supplement to the food festival. I was amazed with how many talented artists the Philadelphia area has to offer!
There were all types of vendors at the show – from accessories, to paper goods, to jewelry, to dog treats – it was endless! Check out some of the things that caught my eye . . .

Crafty Balboa was an awesome experience. I have been shopping on Etsy for most gift giving purposes the past few years, so the fair was great for adding some more shops to my rotation. I will definitely be hitting up some local Philly artists for my next few gifts!
Do you own anything from these talented Philadelphia artists? Any new shops or Etsy stores you have to recommend? xx
