Summer has begun and so had the Art Festival Season. We went to Edina Minnesota for the 50th and France 44th Annual Edina Art Fair. This is usually a Jim Dandy show with many people and excellent Artisans.
Unfortunately we had weather on Saturday. It rain all day and that quelled the crowd. Sunday was OK with many people. The strange thing about this show, and it seems to hold true, that on Friday people buy high end pieces, wands and bracelets, on Saturday we usually sell mid range pendants and Finger Bracelets™, and Sunday is mostly Trinkets, and Finger Bracelets™, so with the rain out on Saturday we kind of missed out. That’s Summer for you.
The really odd thing was the commercial vendors in attendance at a Fine Art Fair like Edina 50th and France. It was surprising to see these.
My friends John and Sandra Albertson were at this show with their new designs. His JohnTheRingMan web site showcases more of his great designs.
After the show, John, Sandra, Ginny Kreiger from Hook an Ear and her friend Kay all went to dinner, so that was fun. We will do it all again next weekend somewhere else. Our next Art Festival appearance will be June 12th 2010 in Rhinelander, WI at Cellcom’s Art Fair on the Courthouse Lawn, and June 13th 2010 in Oshkosh, WI at Oshkosh Fine Arts Association Winnebagoland Art Fair.
