Art in Bloom - Sudbury Ontario
What a day it was!
This is only part of the display area that we had - located outside in the General Hospital area of Sudbury Ontario. Art in Bloom is a fundraising event for artisans and crafters to help out the Sudbury Mental Health Society - a portion of all profits that the artists make during this one day sale, go directly to SMHS.
We were located at the main entrance of the show - beside a few other very talented and creative artists who worked with jewelry, stained glass, wood and some wonderfully tasty treats. Situated directly in the sun, with no tent, all the stones just shone like diamonds in the sun beams! The wind blew the chimes we had for sale making soft gentle sounds throughout the day.
The promoters of the show were wonderful! Fully staffed to host a tea for the guests who came to the show, we were treated with generosity and kindness. Volunteers for this event spent many hours in the hot sun handing out water and food for the vendors. I was impressed by the quality of the food served during the tea and delighted by meeting more of the Sudbury Red Hat Society women.
As for the products available? There was a very good selection of artisans - from pottery, photography, gemstone, beads, glasswork, woodworking, wonderfully yummi treats to eat and more, there was something for everyone at this event.
I cant wait for next year!
