These items and more will look right at home in your collection and also make great gift ideas.

In addition to artisan’s wares, master craftspeople and other talented artists will give live demonstrations in copper spinning, wheel-thrown pottery and other art, giving visitors a window into their creative process. Multiple jazz groups will be on hand with their catalogues of modern tunes, and the popular Middle Earth Studio costume storytelling for kids makes its return. An array of artisan foods you be available to stock your pantry, including handmade cheeses, natural dip mixes, fruit-infused wines and nut butters.
