The Wemple & Edicks Crafts Fair

Coming this year on September 15th & 16th, 2012. 9-5

Wemple & Edicks is an old fashioned ice cream parlor owned by my husband’s cousins, Bob & Laura Channell and this year’s event will be the ??th annual. There usually are about forty booths with steady traffic. I have a little difficulty fitting into the crafts fair category  because my handmade gifts all feature my photographs and I ask myself if maybe I should be in art shows instead. Be that as it may, I find my things are always welcomed with smiles as people recognize their hometown sites on coffee mugs, clocks, paperweights, etc… More than once I heard someone browsing say, “what I like about these things is, they’re local”. Where I referred to the glacial pothole in Canajoharie as just that – a glacial pothole – everyone else stopped and exclaimed, “the boiling pot!”. I guess I’ll just have to re-label a few things.

Anyhow, for a small venue, I have done very well. Even more importantly, were the many contacts I made. Re-stocking the business cards kept me busy and gave me a good feeling inside. Hopefully, I’ll hear from all those folks in the future.
