Summer Shows

Schools out for the Summer and the Summer Craft Shows are upon us... and there are going to be several great shows at the Jersey shore and in the central Jersey area over the next 6 weeks!

The first is the 2nd annual OM Baby show in Pt. Pleasant, NJ on Saturday, July 11th. 20+ EtsyNJ vendors will take over the OM Baby yoga studio with a variety of handmade creations. Om Baby is located in the heart of the Pt. Pleasant shopping district, there's plentiful parking in the area and the show has FREE admission. Plus the beach and boardwalk are both only a 5 minute drive from the show...handmade items and the Atlantic ocean. Show begins at 12pm and runs until 6pm, but get there early for the giveaways : )

Next on the calendar is the Handmade Faire's Summer of Love event. The summer 2009 version of the Handmade Faire will be held in Medford, NJ at Freedom Park on Saturday, July 18th. Approx 100 juried handmade vendors (and 6 food vendors) will participate in what is probably New Jersey's finest craft show. If there is but one craft show to attend, this is the one. The variety and quality of the vendors will simply blow you away and as always... free admission!! Click on the banner in the top right column for more details-------------------------------->>>>>

Turning to August, I'll once again set up my tent at the Lacey CrabFest and Craft Show. The Crafts Show is in it's 9th year and the Crab Fest in it's 13th year. Last year's show found a handful of EtsyNJ members attend and this year will probably be no different. Handmade items, great food and a well organized event always make for a fun time. This year's show will be held on Saturday, August 1st and the show is held on Lacey Rd in Forked River.... just a stone's throw from Rt9. Bring the children, as there are always activities for the little one's and a couple of local radio stations make appearances and free admission for the craft show!

We're still hoping to get a show organized in time for August 15th on LBI... more info to follow.

'til next time...

Thanks for sharing the craft show information! I've decided to follow you to come back and learn more.

I haven't had the time for crafts shows and have only done a few, so your experience is very helpful. I'll also check out the Etsy forums for those craft show threads that you mentioned.
