Fairhope Arts & Crafts Festival - 2010

One of my favorite spring events...the Fairhope Arts & Crafts Festival. The day was warm and the sun was shining. And the vendors were out in full force. Last year we were in Pensacola for a little trip looking for jobs, homes, and just getting to know the area again. It just happened that it was during the art festival, so we made the lovely drive over to Fairhope to the 57th annual festival. But, this post is about this year's art festival!

Great series of pictures. I was there on Sunday. Maybe we passed one another. You have a wonderful eye. I love that you took a picture of shoes! Don't you just love those southern belles!

Wow... such a mix of different art and people and you were able to sample it all, thanks!
