Why, yes, that is candied bacon sprinkled on the top and drizzles of maple syrup.
Friday evening I was kept company by my friend Jess. She is expecting a baby in May - a baby GIRL!! There's going to be a lot of baby girls welcomed into the world this spring from what I saw on Friday. There were so many mommy's to be purchasing their baby's first headband. It was adorable. Friday was a little slower than I expected but, I guess the promoters of the event said that twice as many people attended the event than they were projecting. Friday night was a Gala event. It was dressier with wine and appetizers being served. The guests had to pay $10 to shop early. It seemed to be a much younger crowd shopping on Friday night compared to Saturday.
Saturday went by faster than I imagined it would. Although I was exhausted by the end of the day and my feet were killing me I think the entire day was a success. There was great live music throughout the day (Bill played!!) and the venue was so cool. I just don't see myself doing a craft fair in a gym or civic center. I think I'm going to stick to the more unique settings.
The Plains Art Center
Three floors of handmade goodness!
It was located on the third floor in the far corner. I actually liked the location. It was nice to be tucked away in the corner because there was more room for people to look for a bit. It was also nice because I was out of the traffic pattern so it didn't get super crowded when people were trying to look at things on my table. I should've taken a picture of my booth from a distance...
My next adventure with Poppy and Pippa is the spring Junk Market...
