Sequatchie County Craft Fair

In our first full weekend in Chattanooga, I wanted to live it up Catherine-style! What does that entail? Craft fairs. As many as possible.  I googled and googled trying to find craft fairs and markets going on this weekend and finally landed on one out in Dunlap, Tennessee.

I enlisted my brother's wife, Abby, as a co-conspirator, and after we dropped off the dogs with their Grandma Colleen, we were off to Sequatchie county.  We didn't really know where we were going, other than knowing to look for the fairgrounds.  We assumed that would be on the outskirts of town, so we drove... all the way to Marion county. Whoops!  At least we had these views to enjoy on the way...



After stopping for directions (Google maps is not very familiar with the boonies), we learned the fairgrounds are, in fact, next to the senior citizen activities center near downtown Dunlap.  At least we made it.  Eventually.

Just as I had hoped, the fair was full of fun things: little ladies with their quilts (a lost art!), pallet art makers, monogrammers (my Achilles heel), organic soaps, wreaths...

I ended up with a $5 monogrammed navy pendant (shocking, I know). What a deal!  



I also got some ideas for future home decor projects... when our housing is less temporary.

Now to find a craft fair for this weekend..

Happy crafting!
