A roundup of fashion and handmade goods from Picnic

Let’s get right to it, shall we? Straw hats. If I wanted to just take photos of straw hats on Saturday, I could have filled my camera. I’m glad that we are a city committed to sun protection. Other fashion highlights: major pattern mixing, lots of steampunk style and so much handmade goodness that I was squealing with glee. Now to the photos!
