  1. We attended the fair this weekend for the first time and had a great time, we will be regulars! One of the crafters was selling a children’s book about Monster Boy. He was from New Orleans and we forgot to get a business card and wanted to buy a book. Can you help us?

  2. I just spoke with Barbara Boutot at a show and she gave me the name of your show. I am looking forward to finding out more about your event and getting an application. I make hand dyd and painted silk scarves and clothing. Thank you.
