Do you know what weekend it is?


It's War Eagle Weekend! Can you guys believe that this weekend is finally here? An entire weekend... well, you could almost say week... full of craft fairs. Too many craft fairs for one person to visit. We have War Eagle, Bella Vista Arts and Crafts Festival, the NWArkansas Craft Show in two locations, Spanker Creek (although I don't recommend going to this one), shows at the Frisco Mall, Jones Center and a plethora of other places.

This weekend is one of my favorite weekends of the year. I always loved hunting craft shows for that perfect gift for someone (or myself), getting to samples the dips and sauces that vendors sell, and just having a blast getting in the spirit of the season. Since becoming a vendor in the craft show circuit a few years ago, I have missed out on the fun of the hunt. Sure, I can get some Christmas shopping in while hanging out at my booth for a few days, but it's not the same as hopping from show to show only taking a break for lunch. I just miss the shopping - what can I say... a girl's gotta shop!

Who's heading out for the shows this weekend? Who's vending? Leave a comment telling us where you'll be so we can get out and shop from some local Etsy artists.

So put on your comfy shoes, empty your bank account and start shopping for Christmas!

I'll be set up at the Bella Vista Arts and Crafts Festival Thursday - Saturday selling my handspun yarn, jewelry, spinning fibers and scarves (Idyllhands and Woolyhands) and my sister (Punkinhead) will be selling her market totes, bags, Snowfolk, Ghostfolk and other goodies - so please stop by if you plan on coming out. We'd love to meet you!

I will be at Old Fashioned Square Gathering in Ozark on Saturday. I'll have my jewelry including some cool local school items, and my mother in law is coming with me to sell some beaded Christmas ornaments and crocheted baby booties.

I'm planning on being a vendor @ Spanker Creek. I was told its a real good show. I'm traveling 10 hours so I'd like to know why it's not recommended here. Thanks. This is for the Fall 2012 show.
