Our Arts & Crafts Sale on the Porch on October 25 was a huge success!
All ten vendors (here are their logos) said they had a good day, and (even though the set-up and break-down was a lot of work) they all said they would do it again!
We obviously did a good job of advertising the event (thanks to Dickie Anderson and all the other folks who spread the word!) as we had a steady flow of visitors all day. And almost everyone had a mask, too...our greeters only had to hand out one mask all day!
Front Porch Beads had a VERY good day.
The other vendors kindly made contributions to our cause, while Alwynne Lamp donated ALL of the proceeds from her notecard sales--many thanks, Alwynne! Here she is, pictured in front of her notecard display.
All in all, together with our own jewelry sales, Front Porch Beads made just under $1700!

Above, you can see the Painted Shell Creations table all ready to go! Next, Diane Hamrick of Kenya Partners is just putting the finishing touches onto her "Kenya Marketplace" while Dickie Anderson browses the Black Frog Designs racks.
Lis Krawiecki of Fired Up Fernandina is pictured here standing by her amazing pottery. Next is Lucy Bryan's dazzling notecard display, and then you can see Kathy Munson, pictured with some of her gorgeous wreaths.
KLotz Creations include Karelyn's painted wine glasses and votives as well as cute, hand-painted note cards. Next, Virginie of Black Frog Designs is standing in front of a display of their wonderful maps and photos printed on linen. Last but not least, here are Dickie's well-known books and some of her delightful small paintings.
As you can see, there was a lot of fabulous merchandise to browse and lots of wonderful people on the porch, both buying and selling! It was a lovely day.
