My husband (GipsonWands) & I shared a booth space at the event. We were on the first floor of the barn and had a pretty good view of the festivities. After working for months on procuring & making the hair clip holder frames, and crafting a banner from supplies on hand, I was pleased at how Violet's Buds display turned out.
It was great meeting customers and other businesses in person. Both Kiser Krafts & Unique Creations by Tracy made a special visit to the event. I had a nice time chatting with them both, and Lu & Ed who had a booth at the event too.
I had fun walking around to see the other vendors. There were so many talented people at the fair! I did make a few purchases for myself. I was so excited about this scrabble-esque shirt by Tiny Little Monster. They are a small screen printing business out of St. Louis. Who doesn't appreciate a Vanilla Ice reference?
I am a button hoarder. I wanted to buy one of each of the buttons Two Tone Press had for sale, but I limited myself to two-- Yeti Lover for me and Sci-Fi Lover for my husband. Two Tone Press is a Letterpress Print Shop run by two sisters.
Lastly, I got this Nettle Rosemary shampoo bar from Nurture Botanicals. I can't wait to try it out, and see how well it works. I was warned it may take a few weeks for my hair to adjust, so we will see. If nothing else, it smells great!
