And here's Bethany getting into the steampunk spirit of things with Shannon's help--
We at Jansjems featured mostly steampunk designs. They are really popular with all ages at this show. We also had a small collection of traditional jewelry just in case. But we only sold a couple of those pieces. I did have to say "goodbye" to one of my favorite steampunk pieces.
Several other members of the Artisans of Western Mass. were there--
Lou's Upcycles had a corner booth and her banner stood out nicely from a distance.
Cutsomers got drawn in by Aviva's bright and colorful Sieberdesigns.
And you couldn't miss Wild Child's tie dyed clothing.
Steve was there with handcrafted soaps and skin care products from Little Birch Farm.
Mary Risley Jewelry, brought her beautiful silver and gemstone pieces to the show.
It was really nice seeing some of my former co-workers from the Umass Library who stopped by the tent to chat. The Indian food was great and the snow cones were enormous. And it was nice to spend the day with artistic friends and appreciative customers.
