Craftstravaganzaa!

CRAFTSTRAVAGANZAA 2021

Hey Y'all!

Man, oh man...Missy and I have been sooooooooo busy the past couple of days cramming for the big ATHENS INDIE CRAFTSTRAVAGANZAA tomorrow (Saturday)...it's fast approaching midnight and there's still lots of work and preparation to be done...

For those of you who don't know (and that's probably most of you), the CRAFTSTRAVAGANZAA is a big craft fair that happens here in Athens, Georgia two or three times a year...the one tomorrow is going to be the second one ever (the last one being a couple of weeks before Christmas last year) and it's gonna be bigger and better...It starts at 10am and goes on until 7pm, and it's on the corner of Pulaski and Clayton in downtown Athens (behind the 40 Watt, in the parking lot next to Agora, Betty, and The Caledonia). There's going to be 45+ vendors selling their handmade crafts, goods, art and food plus bands and a DJ...it's gonna be a blast! As usual, Missy and I are going to be sharing a table, hocking our lovingly handmade crafts...Missy will also have some of her zines available too. AND AND AND...we'll be GIVING AWAY 25 COPIES of THE SIMPLE CARNIVAL's "Me And My Arrow" CD e.p. (which Missy designed the cover for)...so, if you happen to be in the area, come stop by and say "hi" and getcha some really cool music...looking won't cost you a penny! And who knows, maybe you'll find that special one-of-a-kind Mother's Day present there? wink wink, nudge nudge? For more information about the Craftstravaganzaa (two "A's", like "kwanzaa") just click HERE.

You can check back here for pictures from the event on Sunday...until then, please take a gander at some images from last year's craft sale and have a good night!

We traded with some of the other crafters today...we did VERY well...we'll have to tell you how well, later! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Also, TAG TEAM TABB is now on our list o' links! Yay! I'll try to send you and Blake Weekend Wind-Down questions tonight...if not tonight, then tomorrow morning (we just got home and we are BEAT)

Lastly, I'll have to double check on Wednesday night...I might have Folklore practice. Jimmy stopped by the table today and practice was discussed, but not set firmly in stone..so we'll see...

Bye!
