  • Jeanette

    Thanks for the craft fair list! I’m so grateful – it’s been a corker searching multiple places to try to figure out what’s going on from week to week, especially for the smaller ones, which are fun to support.

    • You’re welcome! There’s so many talented people in the area that have booths at the fairs, I hate to miss even one. I’m so glad there’s folks out there that are capturing this kind of stuff.
