I found some of my amazing Shop Small Saturday Showcase features on their vendor list, so I will definitely be catching up with Clay & Fabric, Foxboxes, Hallo Jak, Kheel's, Squshies, TeaDrops, Wood Brain, and Zazu Faure.  Then, I will be sure to find some fresh new shops for future features to share with you all!  So excited!

********************


As I was writing this, I realized that I said just about every craft show is my favorite and that every food event has to be on your calendar.  But you know what... it's true!  Definitely, let me know if you're going to any of these, and if there is something else that should be on my calendar (because it's sooo empty).  ;)


Which events do you plan on heading to this spring and summer?
