Harvest and Christmas Fairs for DSigns

During the summer months Ronnie and I sell our wares at the Newfound Farmers Market in Bristol most every Saturday morning.  We enjoy talking with the people and hearing their positive comments about our work, Ronnie: woodworking and I sell photo insert note cards and photographs in several sizes suitable for framing
Now the colder weather is upon us, we look forward to some indoor craft fairs.  We were vendors at the Bristol Applefest Craft Fair and the Franklin High School Chem Free Prom Craft Fair that was held at the Middle School.  We did okay at both fairs but we were disappointed in the attendance.  I think there is just so much going on every weekend that fairs may be at the bottom of folks lists.  But fun things do happen.  This last weekend a woman ran up to our booth as we were packing up to leave.  She said she was so glad she caught us because she wanted to buy two large spoons from Ronnie!  GREAT!  It's rewarding to know when someone appreciates the hand crafted work done by a NH Craftsman.  I sold some of my photographs and had some lovely conversations with old friends and new customers.  We will be vendors at some upcoming local fairs and here's a list:

The Christmas Craft Fair- November 24th -Mascoma Valley Regional High School in West Canaan, NH.

WCA Holiday Craft Fair-December 1st- New London Outing Club Indoor Center (former middle school gym).

2012 Annual- Christmas Craft Fair to Benefit the TTCC-Dec. 7th & 8th, Bristol, NH Community Center.  On Friday the 7th the fair hours will be 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM-Sat. hours-1:30 to 5:30 PM
