So many wonderful craft fairs to choose from makes me wish I had more people to shop for during the holiday season. Maybe I'll take my husband and get a birthday present for myself instead (I'm a December baby). Sometimes just meandering through is a treat in itself, admiring all the beautiful handiwork! I could also get some Christmas decor too. Hm...now which ones to choose...Any suggestions of where I should start? Comment below if you have a suggestion or annual favorite.
