Two days of gorgeous weather at the Thames River Arts & Crafts Show in New London, CT. The grassy lawns of Mitchell College with their view of the river was a beautiful spot. Jaden Events really put their hearts into every aspect of the show, filling the venue with an eclectic range of high-quality, sincere artisans. Visitors were really impressed and everyone apparently had a relaxed, peaceful, happy, entertaining time of it all.
Thanks so much to everyone who participated in the raffle, which was a highlight of each day. On Saturday, "Is That You On Bantam River?" went to the winner Reverend John Burger of Bristol, Rhode Island. Sunday afternoon "Goose Island September Sunset" was won by John Bale of Old Mystic, Connecticut. Congratulations to you both! And thanks again to everyone who bought tickets and contributed to the fun.
Most of all, many big thanks to my handsome helper Eric, who sat with me those two days and helped me pack up when it was time to go. You were a life saver, and full of wisdom too!
Congratulations Shelley and family, on a show well run!
