calling all craft fair friends (and fiends)

This weekend (as in Saturday and Sunday) is the annual Central Valley High School Craft Fair.

Sadly, I’m missing the fair this year, but if you live anywhere near Spokane …

You really should add this to your weekend to-do list.

My adorable friend Melissa Kaiserman has a booth this year.

It is colorful and happy and FULL of delicious homemade goods that include reversible camera straps, wrist straps (for point and shoot cameras, phones and MP3 players), sets of designer “burp cloths”, rosette pins, clips & headbands, beaded watches (no two alike), and a few other odds & ends.

When she sent me these photos I said out loud, “Oh For Pretty!”
I have a hunch you could go and make a serious dent in your holiday shopping (how good would that feel?)
Admission is $2.
Melissa’s booth is in the commons area along the same wall as the front entrance — but you could just squint and look for all that delightful color!

Melissa (btw) is a member of the Write. Click. Scrapbook. collective and designs beautiful scrapbook pages too.
If you haven’t peeked at the WCS November gallery — it’s well worth your time.

Bon Voyage!


  1. Alas I live on the wrong continent to visit the craft fair, but Melissa’s creations are beautiful! :-)

  2. I wish I lived closer – those goodies look very tempting!

    Sounds like a ton of fun! I’m on the East Coast, so no fair for me, but we’re having one next weekend. Support local crafters! =)

  5. Love the fabrics! Beautiful! Our church’s craft fair is this weekend too! Love some homemade goodness for the holidays!

  6. I love craft fairs. We used to have booths at most of them around my area but they have very few of them now. I would love to go to one that was as nice as this one seems to be.

  7. I have family in Spokane and visit there often (I live near San Francisco). Looks fabulous!

  8. Does she have an etsy or website? I would love to order a camera strap!

  9. Thank you for the sweet advertising, friend. :) Have a fantastic time on your cruise!

  10. I wish I wasn’t 3 hours away… Melissa’s crafts look fabulous! Have so much fun on your cruise! I so understand the need for the spray tan…

  11. Ohhh! I so wished I lived nearby! Looks amazing! I’m sure she’ll do well. :-)

  12. Really excited for my buddy. Melissa, your stuff is gorgeous and fun and cute and adorable. Knock their socks off!

  13. Would love to go to the craft fair – but it’s a bit far from Viginia! Look at those camera straps and the rosettes, so pretty!

    Have a safe, fun, relaxing time on the cruise!

  14. Oh my! Those pictures are awesome! Since I live too far away to attend the craft fair, I wonder if Melissa has an etsy shop that those of us out of state could shop online?

    Sure wish I lived on the other side of the state! Love all the colors in your photos! Have a great cruise!

  16. What gorgeous fun pictures! If i wasn’t 2000 miles away i am sure i would be going!

  17. Love them. Tell her she should sell her left overs on the internet and we will buy them:)

  18. Well, nowhere near Spokane (lol) but if I was I’d certainly visit Melissa’s booth – so pretty!

  19. Love all the bright colors in this ‘shop’! So many fun hand-made craft-fairs around this time of year!

  20. I love Melissa K and her stuff! I think I found her website through you and have even ‘lifted’ some of her ideas. Hope you’re having a wonderful cruise.

  21. All those colors made me very happy (and wishing i was a little closer to such a cute craft fair)!

  22. My spouse and I stumbled over here from a different page
    and thought I may as well check things out. I like what I see so now
    i am following you. Look forward to looking at your web page for a second time.

  23. Hello, Neat post. There is an issue along with your web site in web explorer, would check
    this? IE still is the market leader and a huge portion of other folks
    will miss your fantastic writing due to this problem.
