CRAFT EVENTS: AnnaRita Visits The Tarpon Springs Craft Fair

Get excited about the spring craft fairs and artist markets with this report on a crafter's visit to a fair this past fall. AnnaRita said she had a fun time at this annual November craft fair. Read what she had to say about her exciting experience. 
The fair was in Tarpon Springs, a nice little town known for fishing, and sponge docks and real loofah sponges from under the sea. It was small but nice. A lot of hand made jewelry, and home decor, but some mass produced items that were from other countries.  

The first booth that we stopped in was Designs By G!"

G made beautiful wire wrapped jewelry. Wood craved crosses that were wire wrapped with colored wire, jewels, and beads. Starfish that were also designed by her too.

The second booth was very different, but interesting. Steampunk creations, jewelry, pendants and very cool top hats with visors and decorations.
