Craft Fair Returns to Chester Saturday

Fall Craft Show hits Municipal Field at 10 a.m.

While it is still technically summer, the Chester Fall Craft Fair is returning to Chester Borough Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. rain or shine on the Municipal Field in Chester.

The fair will feature a wide variety of tents filled with hand made items including traditional craft, fine art and country crafts. Admission is $5.

One of the artists being featured at the show is Michele Rome, a local artist living in Morristown. Rome makes handmade holiday folk art from recycled paper using antique and vintage chocolate molds, cookie press molds, and repurposed items. As an example, the paper clay she uses in her unique wine bottle tags is made from recycled paper pulp. The embellishments she uses include vintage mica, tea-stained American flags, sewing thread spools, and goat hair. The bottle brush trees and tea-stained flags on some of her pieces are removable so they can be displayed year-round. In addition, many of Rome's display items are antiques that can also be purchased.  

While Rome has been a patron of the craft show for years, this is her first year exhibiting at the Show as a crafter, listed as Paper Babies.

Rome is one of dozens of vendors scheduled for the craft fair. Check out the complete list before you go.

I will be back this fall for the 2013 show. I have always attended this show as a patron aspiring to join in as a vendor. Follow your dreams and you will find what your looking for last year was my first fall sharing my work as an artist. I made many, many new pieces this year even better than last year. Hope to see you in my booth. Check my website for other local shows. www.paper-babies.com
