the big crafy

So, I am frantically trying to get my inventory ready for the All Arts Market on the 15th and 16th (booth 314) and NOW... on the 17th (Friday) as well.  They added an "encore" on Friday with only 35 artists vs. 85 and I have a spot (booth 116), it was total luck, not because I am special.  Anyway, I bring this up to let you know its is just not going to be a great week for blogging and of course so you will spread the word to all of your friends to come see me next week!

In my work storm this weekend I missed out on a few things I had been planning on going to.  One was THE BIG CRAFTY in Asheville.

Here is how The Big Crafty describes The Big Crafty...

 The Big Crafty revives the tradition of the community bazaar, a lively celebration of handmade commerce, featuring local food, beer, toe-tapping tunes, and the fine wares of select indie artists and crafters. We're grateful to have once again been voted Best Arts/Crafts Fair in the annual Mountain Xpress readers' poll! (Thanks, Asheville!)

Our guiding principle is that buying handmade is good for the community, and our aim is to make doing so fun.

Our free and fun for all ages events are held twice annually in the heart of beautiful Asheville, NC.

We extend warm welcome to Asheville's rich pageant of basement and backyard artists, its juried prize-winners, and those who delight in them.

Sounds pretty cool huh?  Did any one out there go to this?  I want to know how it was, I am thinking I might want a spot there next year.  Help me out people!
