Vendor Round-Up: Tasha Mckelvey, Popidiot and Richmond Thread Lab

Richmond is a wellspring of crafty folk and here are a few more of our local favorites vending at the this years SBB.


Popidiot keeps it simple: righteous t-shirts with bold fun graphics. Robots, monkeys, spacemen and more. Not only will they have tees at Spring Bada-Bing, they will have art prints, post cards and handmade comic books. Are you ready to POP out from the crowd? Make it happen.

Richmond Thread Lab is a line of handmade accessories by designer and maker Christie Thompson. Currently focused on hand sewn men's neckties, RTL's Spring/Summer line features lush linens and cottons with bright color. With Spring graduations fast approaching, I see a perfect gift idea for a new grad to dress up his look but be far from boring. See Christie's Spring/Summer line on her lookbook video and website at

Tasha Mckelvey Handmade Pottery
Tasha Mckelvey's handmade pottery and jewelry is inspired by the gardens and forests of her childhood here in Virginia. Many of her clay pieces feature clever touches of flowers, leaves and birds. Bright, cheerful and functional. You will find that it is hard not to smile every time you see her work.
Full disclosure: Tasha is a friend on mine, RCM alumni and I love her stuff. But you totally will too! :-)
