our first craftshow

Last weekend, the Craftmates took part in the Jade Garden & Greenhouse 3rd Annual Craft Show in Milton, Ontario.  It was a wonderful gathering of over 100 vendors and artisans featuring thousands of handmade products, baked goods and fabulous art pieces.

It was a momentous time for us, as it was our very first craft show we participated in as Craftmates.  Our table featured a variety of goods, showcasing each of our little specialties, and stamped with the happy and whimsical look of Craftmates.

We had to put a sign that they were actually edible.
Many thought they were fake!

We're in our happy place!

We received the sweetest treat on Day 2 of the craft show when our friend Cindy of Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard surprised us with a visit.
It was wonderful finally meeting her in person with her adorable boys.
Such a kind and supportive friend! We're still blown away by her sweet surprise!!

We had an amazing time at the Jade Garden craft show!  We would like to thank everyone who came to say hello, and the countless others who emailed, tweeted and texted us their love and support!

We'll see you next year in Milton!

Thank you!
