November 20 - December 20, Bethlehem, PA

Christkindlmarkt is ON! But I won't be there :(

Complying with the Covid-19 restrictions meant that people couldn't touch the jewelry and I couldn't help them try them on. So sadly I had to decline to participate. Showing customers how to wear ear cuffs meant I would be well within the 6 feet distancing requirement. Roll-on 2021. Here is a link to this year's event which goes Oct. 8 - Nov 29, Thur-Sun except Thanksgiving. 

Mar 6 - 7 and 12 - 14, 2021

Maryland Home & Garden Show, Timonium Fairgrounds, MD

Welcome in the Spring with 3 shows in 1 ... a craft show, a home improvement show and a garden show as well as special events to be announced. I receive a few free tickets, so contact me at fionathompson@verizon.net if you'd like one or two. Click here to learn more about this event.
