Christmas in July

This Thursday the annual Christmas in July Arts and Crafts fair will take place in St. Germain, Wisconsin. This will be one of only two juried shows I will be participating in this summer. I will bring with me my traveling jewelry boards, showing off all the latest creations from Dream Life Designs.

This fair, St. Germain’s largest of the season, takes place between 9am and 3pm at St. Germain Community Park, just off Hwy. 70 East. For the first time I’m not bringing my tent with the colorful waving flags. They wanted me to set up on a dirt road and I didn’t want the jewelry to get dusty. Why I can’t manage to get the same tent site each year after doing this show for about seven or eight years is always puzzling; however, I’m happy to try out a site under the pavilion.

Hopefully I’ll see many of my regular customers who always help make this show a success, and meet some new people as well. Of course, for those of you who can’t make it, the shop at Sandy Point is open every day between now and September and you may also want to check out our NEW online store: www.sandypointproshop.com.

And by the way, the weather forecast is 78° with a chance of late thunder storms. Far better than the 53° highs we had last week, when it truly felt like Christmas in July. 

POST SCRIPT:

The show was nearly a complete bust. Unfortunately I took in record low sales for ANY show I've done in the past eight years. According to the other crafters/vendors it's just been that kind of season.

The good news is: I got a hug from Santa.
