One artist in the show is Hilary Pfeifer of Bunny with a Toolbelt who will be releasing her first book this season, a colorful alphabet book called “Elephabet” featuring her whimsical handmade wood animals & more!
This two day sale features a selection of wearable, household, and paper crafts made by talented local artists including Katharina Cahen – Jewelry, Al Flory – Photography & Cards, Margaret Gardner – Ceramics, and a lot more.
