The basket above is a cremation urn for a beloved pet for a women in St. Louis. Handwoven with love, care and pine needles, this vendor along with several hundred of the best local sculptors, textile artists, painters, glass blowers (and more) can be seen at the Westport Art Fair in Kansas City, Mo. We'll have a roundup Monday for those who aren't from the area. Click through for more information on the fair...
This weekend marks the 29th annual Westport Art Fair. As many of you may know, it's exclusively for Kansas City Artists. Knowing that all the things surrounding you were created within a 50 mile radius of where you purchased them is a pretty awesome thought.
