It's not a juried fine art/craft faire, but has anyone participated in Milwaukee's "Great Lakes Pet Expo" to be held Feb. 4?  My hand-crafted dog leash hangers and products seem to do better at dog…Continue

Antioch (IL) Arts & Craft Show - Sat/Sun, Sept 11-12

Art Fair in Library Park, Kenosha, WI - Sun., July 18

Has anyone attended this art fair? (46th annual). It's the day after a one week vacation and I'm wondering if it would be worth my while after a 7 hour road trip the day before. Appreciate any info you may have. I make whimsical dog leash hangers and wood coin banks.
