This just in from Roxy’s e-mailbag…the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival is coming to the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset this weekend. Starting Friday, October 31 (Halloween) from 10am to 6pm and running through Sunday, November 2nd, 2008 at 5pm, the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival promises to be a great place to spend a day with the family and get a head start on holiday shopping. In addition to more than 300 artisans, there will be live music, kid’s entertainment, and great food. Popular artists featured at the show include Danny Kong and Justin Wilner (designer tapestry handbags), Gerry and Donna Keener (fine quality art glass hand cut and fused), Peggy Wilson and Ignacio Bernal (handcrafted fine gold jewelry), Rona Fisher (primal elegance in precious metals), and Robin Barr (wearable sculpture). Middle Earth Studios will provide children’s entertainment with several performances each day from their repertoire of enchanting fairytales and puppet shows.

Way back in the time before Rex (and until Rex and I consolidated our New York City and Somerset locations into one lovely home in the Roxiticus Valley), I lived over in Somerset, New Jersey…it’s near Rutgers and New Brunswick. If I weren’t so busy this weekend, I’d take Rex and the kids over to the Garden State Exhibit Center for “old times sake.” If you get a chance to attend the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival, please do stop back and let us know all about it.

Adult admission is $8 at the door or $7 if you buy your ticket online or click here for a coupon for $1.00 off admission. Kids under 12 and parking are free.
