Summer arrived right on schedule, how's that for some normal weather! We're still soaking it up before it gets too hot and we pack up and go up north. We're more than half way through our spring Craft Fair season and have been having an amazing time with our own GO WEST! Craft Fest, then Art Star Craft Bazaar and the Clover Markets. It felt like summer hit with the Trenton Ave Arts Fest & Kinetic Sculpture Derby and we so much fun watching all those bike powered sculptures and drinking too much iced coffee. We're in the midst of 2 weekends (make that 3 due to a weather related cancellation) off and had a leisurely memorial day weekend canoeing on the Schuylkill by Manayunk and barbequing with friends in West Philly. I have no pictures to prove it though! Which almost feels nice... I do have a homeschool volcano experiment from these weeks, creation to destruction, just like the volcano itself.
This coming weekend is packed full of wonderful antique markets. First is the debut of McConkey's Market in Washington's Crossing. We can't wait to be out in Bucks County in the beautiful Washington's Crossing Park surrounded by historic buildings. Being steeped in all that history feels just right. We'll be sure to have some colonial inspired necklaces too!
Sunday is the final Clover Market of the season. I have some of my favorites from the last Chestnut Hill Market below and I'm excited to see what's new this Sunday. I'll be on my own for most of the day (stocked with water, coffee and snacks!) as Mike and E will be at Bartram's Gardens participating in the Tidal River Boat Parade at the Bartram's Community River Fest. For all of you non venders that's a pretty good Sunday plan! Clover Market for the finds then boating and kids crafts at Bartram's. Hope to see you all some time this weekend!
