The Spring 2010 Queen City Craft Bazaar took place yesterday at Union Station in Burlington. Lots of fantastic vendors filled this old train station and offered an exciting mix of indie craft, designs, and art to our community. The level of talent was incredible and we could hear the excitement from customer feedback. The group of vendors this year was one of the finest yet.
The community vibe filled the station as old vendors reconnected and new vendors made first time contacts. This is what it is all about. Building a place where indie crafters feel welcome and supported while providing a unique selection of products to the community. This is why I do it. The positive feedback from the customers and vendors yesterday was well worth the hard work it takes to put on that show.
Thanks to all of the participating vendors. It is because of you and your talents that this show can continue. Keep producing, keep pushing yourself, keep thinking outside of the box.
Thanks to all of the wonderful customers who came out to support indie craft in Vermont.
Thanks to Seven Days for being my media sponsor year after year and especially for the awesome coverage you provided online and in print this week. Thank you SO much!
Thanks to August First for providing delicious treats for our vendors and customers. It was a pleasure having you a the show this year.
