Must be close to summer, art fair season is upon us! Last weekend was our local fair, and the three of us (Lulu didn't get to come this year, which was too bad bc the place was crawling with dogs) paid a visit in between rain showers.
This year's fair was really quite good. I generally expect to see the same types of wares every year: pottery that all looks pretty much the same, photography that looks pretty much the same...but we were pleasantly surprised at the excellence of the artists and the variety of things we haven't seen before.
