local arts fairs seek vendors
A few opportunities for artisans in the Cincinnati area have popped up on our radar recently. Festival-type events coming up in Northside, Clifton and Over-the-Rhine are all looking for crafters and artists to sell their work.
(Note: We aren’t in charge of any of these events — we just heard about them and thought we’d share the call for artists!)
