A fun Etsy Meetup in Hilo - and a resulting treasury by Cheryl

Yesterday was Kamehameha Day, otherwise I probably wouldn't have made it. Etsy announced that this was the Etsy Craft Party 2011 day, and thanks to Tanya and Connie it took shape. We met in Downtown Hilo at Broke Da Mouth. Yummy coffee and I later had an ahi salad on greens which was also very good. Several people had baked stuffs which also looked very good but I had breakfast before I went. I think most of us had never met in real life before, I only knew Tanya in real life and PK by a bit of on-line communications. We're a rather diverse bunch from vintage through fabric artists and jewelry makers to a candle maker, Cheryl, who put together a treasury that illustrates the large variety:
