An Artisan Affair 2014 Recap

Whoa! That was something. An Artisan Affair 2014 came, went, and took all the energy I had with it! We had an amazing turnout of over 40 talented & creative vendors. Each with their own unique style and talent. For the children we had balloon animals being made by Balloons by Loons and a handmade father's day gift card station run by 9 year old Lily Hill. the Music done played by Sabrina & Tony on Thursday & Friday was spectacular as well as the music by Rachal & Emily on Saturday. We had unbelievably kind reviews from our vendors like this one on Facebook from Kellie Montanna of Me & My Canvas... 
We feel quite blessed to have had so many amazing participants involved with An Artisan Affair 2014. The food was delicious, the shopping was stellar, the music was top notch, and the firendships made and rekindled were by fare more than enough reason to do it all again! I am beyond happy to announce An Artisan Affair to Remember 2015 will be help the second weekend in June 2015 at the Oakland Historic House and Museum on N. Maney Ave. just off the square in Murfreesboro, Tn.

Here are a few pictures from our event taken by Katie Eden of KD Eden Photography we hope you enjoy them and that they inspire you to joins us in 2015. Please look for more blog posts with listings of our vendors, donors and supporters of An Artisan Affair 2014.
