This craft fair is a little different from the many other wonderful local fairs. We’re trying to encourage the use of eco-friendly, local, sustainable, and/or re-used materials by folks working from their own homes, and also to provide an outlet for new vendors and young vendors who may not be able to get into or afford the big fairs.

So you’ll find things like these:
