N and I walked around the street fair today. Apparently it’s an annual street fair, the longest running one in Seattle (who knows if this is true?). I don’t really remember what I read. But it was pretty cool. Definitely a lot of handmade stuff, recycled stuff, delicious food, and I found the first coffee that I enjoy black.
There was a lot less jewelry, a lot more random stuff, the food was much better than SF market fare, and surprisingly normal-priced. Seattle Times had the coolest comic strip umbrellas, but unfortunately I didn’t get one because they wanted a two month subscription. I did get some other goodies though :].
First off – the heartiest, most delicious bread I have ever had…sandwich bread wise. I don’t know what it is, but apparently the story (according to N) had to do with some guy getting out of jail and suddenly making bread. Or maybe he was really drugged and decided it was a great idea to make bread. N wasn’t sure, I wouldn’t know, but here’s the bag that I got with my bread, and the slogan seems to imply something along the lines of bread and jail.
I also picked up some popcorn. I’m kind of a sucker for caramel corn in general, but I tried their white cheddar and it was a lot better than TJ’s popcorn…so of course the stomach in me overpowered my brain and I got a bag of each. It’s cinnamon butterscotch, with white sugar instead of brown, so not your traditional caramel corn.
There were a lot of awesome prints that I really wanted to get since I just stick stuff on my walls, but in the end I found some cute pins that were pretty cheap. The robot hugging the octopus is mine, the other three are up for grabs by friends.
I also picked up a bunch of random stickers for A, an Odwalla kiddie juice box (typical me), and a cute mug for Q. I’m still on the lookout for gifts for the rest of my kiddos.
