Default Gloucester, MA. Waterfront Festival

I've been going to this wonderful craft show, right at the ocean, for about 15 years, every since I found it accidentally. This year, it was breezy, sunny, relatively COOL AND DRY! Wonderful day!

The festival is known for inviting really cool and unique artisans. I buy lots of consumables for myself, family and friends.

Here are some of my favorite food-related booths (I bought something at most of them!).

The picture after the honey products is of a stall with GREAT hot-plate/trivets with dried beans, flowers, spices, etc.

The picture after the maple cotton candy is of wooden tongs that fold flat when you aren't using them (I bought some).

Next year, I will go back and get something from "Knot Again" (incredible cutting boards) - he's online if anyone wants to order.

Awwwwwww, Lefty! I will invite you NEXT year!

The Highland Festival looks like a blast! I'm half Scottish, and it's only 2 hours and 20 minutes away. That may be a weekend trip some time!

Adding a few new pictures from this year's Waterfront Festival in Gloucester.

This is SUCH an interesting fair!

The first two photos are of hand-carved, kind of scary furniture.

Then lawn art and sprinklers.

Samples of vanilla ice cream topped with drizzles of olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt (delicious!)

A picture of my cat, Bud, finding the catnip toy I bought him.

Cairn on the beach.

My friend, Babs, on a beanbag chair/recliner/sofa.

Hmmmph.

Here's Babs on the bean bag.

I saw a customer stand the bag on it's end, then he stood in front of it, and just fell backwards, full length, on top of the chair. The bag formed a couch, molded to his body!

LOL!
