Summer is for Art Fairs!

Last weekend we attended the 'Red Hot Art Festival' in Stevens Square Park in Minneapolis. Our artist friend, Erin, was selling her awesome leather jewelry Artist Built at the fair.  There was a great variety of artists and goods for sale. The park was a perfect venue, small, shaded, and lots of green space to have a picnic and enjoy the live music. I love finding the smaller fairs, that way I can talk with the artists and leisurely browse at my own pace.

Today we went to Waconia, MN to visit our cousin Rhonda who was selling her beautiful hand painted signs and home decor in front  of Jim Gilbert's Wild Bird Store on main street.  There were a couple other artists around the downtown area exhibiting their work. Waconia is also home to the exciting Nickle Dickle Day so mark your calendars for September 17th for a fun filled day of crafts, cars, and music!

  1. Thanks for the shout out! It was such a treat to have the SophiaFredricka sisters visit me and spend the day walking Waconia's sights.
    Nickle Dickle is a HUGE day here, stop by and visit the Art Market, its on the North side of Main St. right across from City Square Park. It starts early! 8-5 but worth the drive!!
