Pretty day. Met a lot of very nice folks Very low number of people attending, but I still sold six environments to happy new owners. I was literally across from two young Alpacas!

We had a corner space, so the set-up was a little different in appearance.

Met Rhonda, a Master Gardener who makes different kinds of bowls than mine, and is teaching a class on how to make Fairy Bowls. Her website is here: http://www.gardening-inspirations.com/index.html Her bowls are charming, as she is, too!

wiltonshow2,jogRain, high winds, and only six of us venders out of 29 expected showed up. Lovely organizers with tons of free coffee and doughnuts, but two tents literally blew over from the heavy winds. They asked me to come back next year and I will. Sold three bowls to three hardy souls! It would have been fabulous, except for the weather.

6. We added the Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market on Sunday because of the weather on Saturday. No rain, but wind gusts over 40 mph. Sold two more bowls, and received tons of compliments. We may return again this season because it’s so close to home base.

7. June 1 Teddy Bear Family Craft Festival      
Town Green – New Milford, CT 

Very hot, extremely humid, very small attendance.   

8. June 2: Forthy-Ninth Arts and Crafts Fair  
Huntington Green – Shelton, CT    

Gorgeous day, great attendance, sold 6 bowls – AND – I won the First Place Prize for Crafts, which am with a certificate and a $75.00 check. I was thrilled and loved the location. Great show and very professionally organized. Lots of exhibitors and the things being sold were special and unusual.
