The long-standing, incredibly popular 39th Annual Bow Craft Fair began Saturday with huge crowds looking to purchase some wonderful handmade/handcrafted items. I am doing my blog differently this 1st day of the event. Usually I include all my customers, stories about the purchases and other vendors at the show with contact information and/or links. It takes me 5 hours or more to complete, but because I want to show possible attendees what diverse and great items are available, I am doing this quickly (sort-of quickly, about 3 hours of time) to post this before Sunday’s hours. There is MUCH more than the vendors that I am showing here and the Sunday hours of 9:00-1:00pm will allow more attendees to find that out. I will list on my Sunday blog ALL my customers and the vendors contact information and/or links.
There are booths everywhere in the hallways, the gyms and the cafeteria.
Students have booths for raffles and support for their causes.
There are raffle tables with items donated by the many vendors and I think I saw 50/50 raffles also.
The smaller gym was full of vendors and I saw a familiar booth of Paintings by Gisele and these are her beautiful paintings, many of which are of local spots. She has all kinds of sizes.
The large gym that I am located in was full of vendors and attendees as you can see by the photos.
I have my beautiful 3 heart hanging pieces high over the crowd. The striped wood is Zebrawood and the other is my new rich, intense Redheart.
Below are just a small section of the vendors, but the photos give a nice look at some beautiful, handmade items and as I stated above, I will include their contact information on Sunday’s blog, so for today everyone better get to the show!
