The Old North House Tour and Home Grown Street Festival - May 14 (from 10-4)

What: The Old North House Tour and Home Grown Street Festival
When: May 14, 10am-4pm

This info was found on Facebook from Holly Schroeder. She knows a LOT about the STL craft scene!

The Details: The Old North St. Louis House and Community Tour is expanding this year. Crown Square, formerly the 14th Street Mall (right across the street from Crown Candy), is a two-block area of refurbished historic buildings which reopened to street traffic last year. To celebrate, we are throwing a street festival, and are looking for arts and crafts people, as well as truly local businesses and those who would like to give some sort of demonstrations...cooking, gardening, artist demos, music, dance etc. Kids' activities would also be very much welcomed. Booths are free for neighborhood residents and $65 for those outside the neighborhood.

If you would be interested in participating, or know someone who would, please contact Kathleen Parvis at parvimail@sbcglobal.net.

See their BLOG too!

volume 25 - her first craft show was great!

these images are all from the volume 25 blog. she is an incredible inspiration to us all!!

See her awesome blog HERE. It is filled with TONS of great ideas for planning a craft show. Looks like this was for her first show, and she really did it right!

This is a credit card imprinter or "credit card kit" on Ebay for under $20. I guess you take the impression of the customer's card, then when you get home, you go and pay via Paypal. I think I would want to make sure Paypal is easy to use in this situation before I got the imprinter. But I bet this is a great way to accept cards at shows.
