Crafter Info

Historically (for 33 years), this has been a specialized show featuring

traditional Americana, folk art, historic crafts, authentic antiques and the

original works of award winning artists.

Even before acquiring the show six years ago; I have always considered

myself as one of the show’s biggest fans. As such, I also love a variety of

genres involving our past. That is why I am excited about expanding the

show to include Vintage and Repurposed items -
