Shop Local!!

Tis the season…. for craft fairs, that is!  Actually, I’ve noticed that quite a few of them are being called “craft shows”, but no matter what you call them, nothing can beat a good gathering of local wares being sold just in time for the holiday gift giving season! 

I mean, who doesn’t need another pair of hand knit mittens, a jar of home-made jam or jelly, or a few new Christmas decorations?  And think about the gifts you could purchase to actually give away!!  Not to mention the local camaraderie (and gossip!)  you get from walking around the shows, talking to old friends and meeting some new friends

So on this Small Business Saturday, are a few fairs and/or shows that I know about this weekend:
