Craft Fair Season is in full swing! After the hubbub of
Renegade Craft Fair, we thought it would be fun to check out a smaller, quaint craft fair. The Lake Katonah Craft Fair was just that. It was held in the clubhouse situated on beautiful Lake Katonah. Here are some photos from a very fun and festive day! I brought some Holiday Gnome cookies with me and this guy decided to do some exploring. Thats the Lake Katonah club house in the background. Tamara and I shared a table which always makes the day fun and interesting Tam sold her adorable felted acorn ornaments, brooches, holly berry pins and snow people- all make great gifts and were very popular with shoppers http://www.etsy.com/shop/angeldogdesigns Its always hard to narrow down holiday cookies to sell because there are so many fun shapes! I baked an assortment of Santas, Gnomes, Gnomis, winter animals, and ornaments. Early on we saw that the penguin would be a big seller at this fair… Nikki Elkins (kitchen manager from the Martha show) stopped by with her adorable kiddos, Lucy and Will. Will could not wait to eat his penguin! Speaking of snacking, fresh donuts were prepared throughout the day for the bake sale table… I found Alicia Condon making these amazing donuts in the club house kitchen… she said the recipe she was using (by Martha Stewart) was most reliable and always delicious! After extensive taste testing, we wholeheartedly agree! Imagine our surprise when Martha stopped by! I sent her a flier since she lives down the road and she decided to pop in while running her morning errands. When I heard Martha’s dogs were in the car, I had to go say hi. GK has grown so much since I last saw him on the set of the Martha Stewart Show! He is very huggable. Back inside, Jane Turner was selling her amazing wideworlddog.com books and matching merchandise. Her illustrations are just so sweet! The dog beds, shirts, and other items by pedbedsheetsonline.com were very nicely made… many people also wanted to buy this adorable dog prop! This young entrepreneur was doing very well selling his mason jar candles! I have always LOVED these rustic birchwood reindeer! If I didn’t already have 2, I would have bought these! The animal illustrations on these ceramics by Stephanie Mear are whimsical and adorable! Objects, quilts, and eclectic art by Kathleen Anderson Beautiful and elegant silver works and jewelry by ShopAtreyi.com It was amazing to watch portrait artist, Martha Talburt, in action! She works very quickly yet her drawing style is detailed and beautiful. Crafter, blogger and collector Tereza d’Andrade of presepiovista.blogspot.com was excited to be selling with her sister-in-law and mother- what a sweet family! Hip, upcycled necklaces by Tanklime and fun, beaded jewelry by Alicia Simon The display for these pretty glass ornaments was just perfect with a view out to Lake Katonah Did I mention there were fresh donuts served all day? These were jelly! After a lovely day of selling, we took a moment to admire the beautiful Lake Katonah and were off!
Thanks to organizers Joan Roth and Wendy Rice for a great gathering and a fun day of selling. Tis the season and Merry Merry! Xo Dani
