Funky Ferndale Art Fair 2010

Two years ago I attended the Funky Ferndale Art Fair and stayed on the West side of Woodward along 9 mile. While I knew something what going on across the street just south of 9 mile, I never ventured over. This year I was previewing some homes in the neighborhood and started at the DIY Street Fair on East Troy Street, east of Woodward Avenue and south of Nine Mile Road The DIY definitely delivered on the promise “twice as funky as the average fine art show”.

The weather was a bit iffy and I almost didn’t go but there was really great attendance and certainly represented the vibrant community of Ferndale. There was plenty of live entertainment, 14 Michigan Brewers, Local Restaurants, DIY Marketplace and a Kids Zone. I don’t know who the person was in the dunking tank, but there was a long line of children ready to hit the mark and dump him in the water, and he was quick to pop back up and go again – as captured in this video.

Jewelry is my favorite art to purchase and a pendant created by Patsy LaBlanc captivated me. I now have a new one to add to my collection. I also picked up some beautiful note cards by Lily K. Arnett called Flower Power . I love flowers and, when I send notes to people, I like the cards to be unique and these were irresistible. The DIY is definitely on my list for next year.
