Celebrate West Hartford

Arts.  Crafts.  Food.  Rides.  Nonprofits.  School jazz band concerts.  Always busy.  Always fun.

A woman makes whimsical tassels from vintage and collectible salt and pepper shakers.

Over the years I have bought this potter's vases, coffee mugs, wine cooler and berry dishes,
but these days I have stopped buying stuff for myself.

I liked these watches and bands, but I have enough watches . . .

 Lamps made from salvaged musical instruments.  Clever.

Marie makes lovely glass bead jewelry with a Japanese Kumihimo braiding technique.

My sister likes birdhouses.  A few years ago I couldn't decide so I bought her three.

A month old social enterprise company sells fanciful socks.  They employ physically or intellectually disabled adults in the business and the net proceeds are donated to HARC,
a Hartford nonprofit that works with those indivuals.

What a great looking crafts show. Thanks for sharing a few things I wouldn't have considered!

There is a nice assortment of things there, Jack! I think we have all reached the stage of having too much stuff.

The music instrument conversion is fascinating.

Some very creative people. I always find plenty that I like at such fairs but very little that I actually need.
