Tonight was the Carbondale Downtown Art and Wine Festival. It was nice to vend at, and the weather was absolutely amazing!!! Please visit the DAWF Website for more info...
Next weekend (October 9), is the Art Around the Square, where local businesses in the downtown area feature artists from all over the country in their shops. Many times, the artists may even begin selling their work from the shop after the event too. Please visit The Art Around the Square Website for more info. Stop into Dayshift if you have a chance to see two really great artists!! (Carbondale, IL)
Then, the following weekend (October 17-18) is Vulture Fest!! I will be there shopping and possibly vending. The boardwalk is a fun place to visit and there will be lots of art, crafts, and music. Some good food (especially the candied almonds and pecans...yum!!) Dayshift will be vending there too. (Makanda, IL)
Tis the season to be creative and make, sew, craft, whatever you fancy!! The nice cooler weather (at least in the Midwest) inspires more people to get put in their communities and enjoy local art and other fun activities. The holidays are fast approaching, so stock up your Etsy shops and be prepared this year!!
