Athens Indie Craftstravaganzaa

We had a great day today at Craftstravaganzaa.   We were  worried about the weather, as a lot of rain and storms had been predicted.  Saturday dawned grey and overcast, but by 10 am the sun was shining and the sky was the prettiest shade of strong cyan.  It was a little cool and somewhat breezy, but we were all very relieved that it did not rain.

We had quite a turnout today, a lot of visitors and a lot of people buying.   The interest in buying  handmade and buying local is strong in Athens and that makes me happy.  Athens is a very creative community, and it makes me proud to see so many beautiful artistic things being offered.  Craftstravanganzaa is Athens' largest handmade market and I think the best.

I took over 300 photos today at the show and will work on getting them cropped, corrected, and published on the website as quickly as I can.  It will surely be several days, as that is  lot of work to do all those gallery pages.   I'll also post them on Flicker, and some on our Facebook fan page, so check them out.

Day two of Craftstravaganzaa is tomorrow, from noon until 5-ish.
