Finally the weather in Southern Illinois is nice enough to be outside every day!
This weekend, another event is happening. In Makanda, IL on the Boardwalk, the Makanda Spring Fest will be in full swing. Saturday and Sunday all day. Featuring live music, roasted, candied almonds and pecans (mouth watering...), and of course fun arts and crafts. Usually a very eclectic mix of hand made and then some not so hand made. But check out the shops...
The Trading Post for incense and gifty items
The ever adorable Dayshift for all hand sewn purses, clothing, baby items, and some vintage. This shop is absolutely amazing, and you should surely take a trip there and visit soon!!! See Mary HERE!!
The Smelly Hippie for your tie dyes and hippie gear
and Visions for glass jewelry, paintings, and other nice quality art.
So, come and support local artists and see some locals!!
