Grimsby festival of Arts!

Once again this year I will be at the Grimsby Festival of Arts, on Saturday, Sept. 11 from 9 to 5.  This is a juried show, and for the past two years it has been by invitation only.  I didn’t think I would be able to make it because of other commitments, but I can!!  I like this show.  As a shopper it is small enough that you aren’t completely exhausted just looking at everything.  They seem to have a good variety of crafts people in the show, as well.

If you are in the neighbourhood and would like to see my beauties up close and personal, this is the show to do it at!
