Seasonal Fairs are right around the bend. Besides getting ready to "present" new and traditional wares and wears, Madam Chino is again teaming up with Milwaukees finest, working hard for the 3rd annual HOVERCRAFT "Shop Local! Support Local!" event at Sweetwater Organics on Saturday December 1st from 12pm-6pm.

In celebration of all things local and Wisconsin, Hovercraft discovered a very special Milwaukee vendor at WISCONSIN KNITWEAR located on Milwaukees Southside to produce for the first time, HOVERCRAFT's own green and yellow double knit pompon SWAG HATS! These hats will be limited edition of 48, so first come first serve.
Check out what they're doing and get some hats for your digs!
For you amazing veteran and virgin boothers, because HOVERCRAFT accepts established and emerging artists alike, check out this cool Flickr group SHOW ME YOUR BOOTHS to get ideas on pop-up set-ups and traveling showcases, or to network your clever display ideas visually!
One of my favorite Penny Spencer moments of feeling organized and ready for the show. Talk about trunk show, and living out of a suitcase!
If you are a connoisseur of buying local for the season or just trawling local fairs for new ideas, or if you are an organizer and want to get your fair included, head to FESTIVAL NET for a list of crafty fairs in your area!
