  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.


  3. I was a first time vendor at this show last year (2018). Even with the rain I loved the community that attended the show. I will definitely be a returning vendor with my handmade notebooks/journals and bags from repurposed blue jeans. I truly hope the taco salad will be on the menu again, it was amazing!!!
