thanks for an amazing show!
Wow, y’all. Yesterday was our fifth birthday and 11th craft show, and it was incredible to celebrate it with crafty friends new and old. If you were one of the many people who shopped with us yesterday, please take our shopper survey to let us know what you thought so we can keep the show as awesome as possible!
We hate to be hyperbolic like “best show ever!” but seriously — yesterday was our BEST SHOW EVER. Our wildest dreams came true: More than 5,000 shoppers game out to shop with our 90 vendors, a full thousand more than last year’s attendance. This is what the place looked like during the busiest part of the day:
Even this guy showed up:
Cincinnati Magazine stylist Tamia Stinson picked three vendors at the start of the show to win awards for Best Display, Best Products and Best Newbie.
And the winners are:
Best Display: Marisol Spoon of Asheville, NC
Best Products: Oceanne of Cleveland, OH
Best Newbie: Pure Angora Knits of Cincinnati, OH
The sweet felt ribbons are creations from Abby Langdon. And the shoppers who attended the show voted for their favorite vendor to win the People’s Choice award. The big winner was Off the Beaten Path of Dayton, OH!
Big thanks go out to our sponsors, our trusty volunteers, our resident DJ Ben Davis, the incredible staff of Music Hall and all of you shoppers, of course. But especially all of the vendors who traveled from near and far to be with us.
Our spring show will be April 25 at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center. Vendor applications and all the details will be posted in January. For now we’re taking December off to relax and recover with our friends and families. See you in 2015! :)
