Forget window shopping . . . in this gorgeous spring weather I prefer OUTDOOR shopping. So I’m excited to check out the first ever “Celebrate Spring” Arts and Crafts Fest in Fanwood on Saturday, May 9.
From 10 am to 5 pm, more than 100 artisans will showcase their handiwork in the train station parking lot of Fanwood. Do not expect the flea-market type merchandise that you find at most festivals; all the items for sale at this show have been handmade with with tender loving care. If you like to shop for handmade goods on etsy.com, then you will certainly enjoy shopping the Arts and Crafts Fest.
Among the items for sale you will find glassworks, pottery, jewelry, fashion clothing, gardening items, woodwork, paintings, sculpture, photography, and much more. And it just so happens that this Arts and Crafts Fest is the day before Mother’s Day–so you can pick up something unique, handmade, and fabulous for the mothers in your life! Or get a jump start on shopping for Father’s Day.
In addition to the crafts vendors, there will be lots of gourmet food for sale. Everyone will be entertained by live performances throughout the day featuring jazz, acoustic, oldies, and more. And don’t forget to bring the kids: there will be a FREE craft section for children where they can make take-home crafts! There’s truly something for everyone at this festival.
