Odd Duck

I ventured to the land of WANT today...
seen at C.A.B. Fayre
to Odd Duck Bazaar in Davie at the historic Old School and witnessed fabulous craft. There were things for body, home, and garden, I lusted mostly for articles of personal adornment such as jewelry and handbags. Here are a few of highlights.

from Danny Brito
My splurge. A hand-painted vintage purse by Danny Brito. ($40). I actually needed a ladylike tailored purse rather than an everyday schlepping tote. It was love at first site. I am typically not a bow person, but the black-on-black is so subtle that I think it'll work out just fine. I felt so modern when I paid via a cell phone swipe.

from Andrea Cammarata Glass Art

A is for Apple. B is for bow @ Andrea Commarata's Glass Art. Once again, I've never been a frou frou bow lover, but Andrea (top photo, right), with her beau bow, has made me a convert. Seriously...this metallic red bow glass necklace ($65) just might be the quintessential holiday 2011 necklace.
from Deland Tiki
There was something so endearing about this rough-hewn hard-case purse ($125) and the love story behind it. Sara, who sells vintage clothing,  was coming home one day with one of those desirable vintage wooden purses -- maybe a la Enid Collins or similar -- and she fell and it broke into smithereens. She was very upset. A few hours later, Justin, a talented whittler, presented her with his own version. So romantic, right? From Deland Tiki.
from CraftySarah

Last year I bought an "Eclipse" duct tape wallet from Sarah McCarty. This year I bought one with a sugar cereal box theme ($15). My friend, Debbie, was interested in the comic wallet above. They're big enough and chic enough to use as an evening clutch.

With "The Underwear Diaries" permanently implanted in my brain, underwear never goes unnoticed. May Stafford cuts and decorates these white cotton briefs ($7). I'm loving the contrast stitching.

Coming later this week: my favorite home delights at Odd Duck. Until then,  XOXO.

I love the story of how the purses were born from DeTiki :) so sweet. I wish I'd had more time at Odd Duck to find out these little things.

my daughters think it's ugly, but that didnt dissuade me from taking her out on a maiden voyage to a popular boca eatery!!
