Fairfax Fine Art Festival: Saturday and Sunday, May 3 & May 4

View number 1 of what might be in my (Jill Banks) booth at the Fairfax Fine Art Festival 2014
Tonight (Friday, May 2) the tent will move from my driveway to become Booth #19 in this weekend's Fairfax Fine Art Festival.

Another view ... this time of the inner corner
Both Randy and I are moving a little more slowly. It's been quite a day setting up a rather complicated booth for the first time. Thank goodness we weren't doing it first ... in the dark ... or on the day of the festival.

The payoff for the effort is one great-looking booth ready to welcome visitors -- best of all, You!

While there are no final yeas/nays yet as to what will be hanging there ... here's another sneak peek of what you might find there. What do you think?

Join me there if you can:
Saturday, May 3, 10am to 6pm (maybe 7?)
Sunday, May 4, 11am to 5pm
Rain or shine
Fairfax Corners Shopping/Restaurant area in Fairfax, VA.  See my web site event page for more details.

I hope to see you this weekend. Bring friends (if you want), help me spread the word ...

It's really nice that the  booth setup has been moved out of the family room onto the driveway. Wonder what the neighbors think of our new addition?

Just heard word, too, that I was accepted into the 41st Annual Westport Fine Art Festival (art festival #5 for me in 2014), being held July 19 & 20 in Westport, Connecticut.
