Crafty Minions: The Handmade and Vintage Sale

I am sorry to miss this one.  We will be out at the lake.  I do hope it has a good turn out because it is one of my favourite craft sales!!  I love it because I can go and be out again in 15 mins with all my money spent on awesome stuff.  Here are the details I swiped from their Facebook page:
