Milford Oyster Fest Craft Show

We were at the Oyster Festival in Milford, CT this past weekend. It was a sunny hot humid day. We welcomed it after all the rain the last two months. The day was good, many people were out enjoying the show, 30,000 people were expected for this annual event. There were 200+ crafters sprawled out along the Milford green. If you have never been there, it is quite large. We took some pictures of our display and the crowds. Hope you enjoy.

Here are some customers enjoying the many unique one of a kind birdhouses we had displayed for the show.

We were lucky enough to get a spot by the flowers where we displayed our license plate birdhouses.

Our new tobacco lath garden stake birdhouses were a huge hit.

They heard we were here!

Guilford Craft Show

We were at the Guilford Craft Show on Saturday, beautiful weather....FINALLY.

There were 60 crafters selling an array of jewelry, fine arts, prints, hand turned pens, woodworking, handmade soap just to name a few (which I had to buy) and birdhouses. The buying crowds were out and we really enjoyed the day.

We had today off, so what do you think we did. We drove around looking for tag sales. We really lucked out, we found a ton of items that we can make one of a kind birdhouses out of, but we are not giving away any secrets just yet.

We have had a lot of requests for church birdhouses. Fred has been busy the past week designing and building them. The windows on each side are stained glass. We met an artist who speicalizes in stained glass and asked her to create the windows just for us. Let us know what you think.
