Emily's June craft show pics...Wakefield, Eastham, Fairhaven & Plymouth

Ok, we will start with the most recent! This is Village Landing in Plymouth, on water st. It's a nice grouping of artisan's boutiques with a lovely brick courtyard. Every Thursday between 4 & 8 there is an artisan's fair there run by Mandi Fedele of Snuggle Time Embroidery. It's a new & growing market so if you are in the area come out and support all the hard working folks that have given artisans like me an opportunity to participate. Can't wait to see how it evolves! I will be set up at Artisans in the courtyard again on July 30th and on Aug 27th.My set up above, in front of the Winery.
Below Mandi's table of machine embroidered baby accessories. Sew cute!!
I loved my neighbor's all natural handmade soaps. Between all the lavender in my work and her soaps we had the courtyard smelling fantastic!
I am such a sucker for a French Bulldog. Maybe someday I will have one.

An old New England downtown setting, so pretty. I have to say I was really disappointed to see all the mass produced and imported CRAP that was in this show. Especially when the application & paperwork said that was a no-no. Emily's Vintage Cottage won't be making an appearance that show next year. The money was just not there. It was a beautiful day and the food at this show was the yummiest and most varied I have ever seen at any craft show/street festival. Fairhaven has incredible public buildings. It was worth the trip just to see the Town Hall and Church. That Raggedy Ann in the pic below was made by my neighbor. Just couldn't seem to get a picture of that table without one in it...

Busy street & pretty Town Hall

Dr. Frankenswine does the best BBQ on Cape Cod. He's at The Oyster fest in October too. Can't wait for that show. It's the weekend after Columbus Day so, save the date!! Nifty BBQ meat smoker-trailer. Having a party on Cape Cod?? Frank does it right.

Wakefield Festival By The Lake
Another adorable town green setting. I usually have a nice shady spot under a tree.Met lots of nice dogs and people at this show. It's usually the first craft show of the year for me and one of my favorites.

This little guy caused quite a ruckus!

Well, That's the June craft show roundup. I am working on my July Brimfield post next.

I have a craft show on the cape this Friday & Saturday hosted by the Dennis-Harwich Lions club. It will be held on the old Melpet Farm property on Route 134 in Dennis.

More Soon...XOXO Emily
