As in Courthouse Square in downtown Scranton this Saturday, July 27th from noon to 8 pm. It's the first year for this event but it's going to be huge! And it's not just a craft show but more a celebration of the arts in our city. There will be art and performance events throughout the day and music by local favorites The Coal Town Rounders, Rogue Chimp, and Gypsy Jazz Quartet. All on three stages (Spruce, Linden, and N. Washington Streets). The fourth side of the square (Adams Avenue) will host an Open-Air Studio with art-related events.
Read interviews with some of the artists, musicians, and craft vendors here. See the day's schedule here. And check out this cool promo video—
I'll be one of the craft vendors but I can't tell you yet exactly where to find me. I'll edit this when I receive that information. Besides me and my vintage-inspired creations, there will be soaps, candles, children's clothing, accessories, photography, painting, and jewelry. In other words, a little bit of everything. I don't know about you but I love to get some early holiday shopping done at summer craft events. It's a great way to find unusual gifts and to support your local community at the same time.
I'll be debuting not one but four new items (crazy, right?—I've been sewing like mad for weeks)—vintage button magnets, vintage fabric pin cushions, simple beach tote bags made from vintage heavyweight fabrics (some authentic bark cloth), and needle books sewn from vintage fabric scraps with felt pages inside to hold pins and needles. I'll have a little of everything else in my product line, too. I hope you'll stop by and say hello.
