Mountain State Art and Craft Festival

Posted by Wallace Fuller on September 18, 2017 at 6:49pm 2 Comments

Lu and I did something that we have never done in 50 years of doing Art Fairs. We arrived at Mountain State Art and Craft Festival in Ripley, WV on Thursday to set up for the weekend.

This is terrific information, and not just for artists! Copy and paste anywhere you think it will be seen by those impacted by the storm.  (Note: My home and property and family are all safe, unaffected by the storm.) 



1. File with FEMA and get your FEMA number ASAP! You will need it for everything. Download the FEMA app now. They now prefer that you register online rather than the phone.

2. File a claim with BOTH your homeowner's and flood insurance. Even…
