[pics] LA Times Festival of Books

May 2nd, 2011 | 3 Comments » | by kristel

Yesterday I checked out the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books at USC. It was a really nerd’s dream come true! Writing workshops, tons of vendors, special guests, and free ice cream. I had to stuff my wallet at the bottom of my bag to prevent me from having easy access to it and spending all my money (and trust me, I wanted to buy EVERYTHING).  My favorite tent, however, was the one pictured above.  People were encouraged to write what book they were reading on the wall. I proudly jotted my down, see if you can spot it in the gallery.

I took some pictures of my favorite vendors, but because of the format of the gallery I couldn’t include captions. So instead, I’m going to highlight some of my favorite finds today. So stay tuned!

This awesome clock was made from a recycled Silvertone record player and a Sir Records 45 titled, “Nobody But Me” which is replaceable. This is a one of a kind item obviously and would make a really cool conversation piece at your next gathering.

This item melted my cold, cold heart. It’s a sterling silver Tree Bark personalized ring. It’s personalized with your and your lovely’s initials, as shown above. And from the other picture (shown below), I’m thinking you might be able to get something engraved on the inside of the band too.
