A Good Find at Summerfair, Cincinnati

The 44th annual Summerfair was held over the weekend at Cincinnati’s version of Coney Island.  This is a 125-year-old amusement park with lots of old, shady trees and plenty of places to sit and rest between visits to all of the juried crafters’ booths.

Many years, I just stroll and admire all the beautiful crafts without buying anything, but this year, I saw a wall pocket that I really liked.  It was made by the Pottery Boys from Blue Island, Illinois, and I had just the right spot for it in my kitchen.  It is exactly the same color green as my primitive shelf and is just right for a snapdragon cutting from my garden.

  1. Very pretty; our arts festival was this past weekend too and a big storm hit there and tore a lot of things up. I felt bad for the artists.

  2. I just love finding the perfect piece of artwork…
    You really scored on the wall pocket…it is lovely and your pictures are great.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Very pretty, and it sounds like a wonderful thing to visit. If I have a vacation tine next year, I’ll try to keep up with the date and go myself. I don’t think it’s all *that* far to Cinci from Knox.
