We went to the famous Craft Show

Today we went to the Little Falls Arts and Craft show. This is an annual two day craft fair with a ton of vendors! This was the 36th Annual show! There are over 700 juried exhibitors. Artists, crafters and specially selected food vendors that are working at the craft fair. I have gone for about 5 years now, and I love it! Good walking, great items to look at~ all hand made, and lots of people. It wasn't too crowded, even with a stroller, so I was thankful. It was a perfect day to go, because it was kind of chilly out, and there was an overcast of clouds. I am glad it wasn't super hot! I will say I really didn't take any photos, because some crafters don't like that in case you want to "mimic" their ideas. I did get some amazing ideas, but knowing me, I will probably forget them all. One of my favorite items, and currently on my "wish list" is this very comfortable chair hammock! I would love to have about 3 of them on our 3 season porch, as well as a laying down hammock out in our yard!

It is so comfortable! It holds up to 500 pounds, so it for sure holds me! LOL It is very sturdy, too! Nathaniel loved it, and begged for us to get it. Seriously, I would have if I had a $120!
Maddie thought this chair was great, too. She didn't want to get out.
I would have taken a photo of Caleb, but he wouldn't get back in the hammock. I missed the chance when he was lounging. I think he was feeling the need of a nap at that time, oh well.

My friend, Jone, came with us! It was fun to spend the day with her! I don't get to see her nearly enough! She loves the arts and crafts, too! She was really liking the jewlery. She said her eyes are drawn to the sparklies. It was fun to hang out today, Jone!

I love going to places like that. But I spend more time window shopping than actually buying!

I always love the arts and craft fairs especially this time of the year when they have all the fall and Christmas stuff out. Glad you were able to spend time with a good friend that just made the day that more exciting!

I've been to the Little Falls craft show, but not for a few years now. It's huge! They pretty much cover the entire town with crafts. My problem is, that I never end up buying anything because I always think I might find a better deal somewhere else. Then when I decide I want something at the end of the day, I can't remember where it is!
