There is more than enough talent to go around to make both of these shows quite the spectacular! With 100+ vendors to see this weekend, you better get started! We did! Here's some of our favorites below...

Amy Rice has 100 little paintings ready to go for the show, all priced under $40. You can also contact her via her blog about other pieces for sale.

Aesthetic Apparatus is known the world round for their keen sense of design and work in the art work. You can stop by their booth and pick up any one of their fantastic prints. We especially love the recent Doombuddy pieces!

Chestnutfarmer makes wooden and screen printed toys for girls and boys. Stop by to see his small handheld games, secret pillows and more!

missamyjo isn't a newcomer to the No Coast scene and has been a supporter of it for many years. Be sure to stop by for original pieces as well as things from the vault you thought were long gone!

Adam Turman is hitting No Coast like a storm with reprints of sold out favorites, and he's giving away 2 embellished Giclees of his "Cherry and Spoon Painting" and more. We absolutely love his "Eat Locally" print that would be great in any Midwestern home.

Giraffe Art brings you Smart stuff that looks good. Check out their great selection of coasters, magnets and more. Be on the lookout for some collaboration work with Adam Turman as well!
