    Can someone tell me some information about being a vendor at the fall craft fair? I would love to maybe try and set up my own booth next year.

  2. Mary Harper says

    Can anyone tell me the name of the artist that does the religious based paintings that was at last years craftsmens fair? He had a particular painting that I wanted and didn’t get and I have been trying to locate him ever since. The picture was a painting of the lion laying down with the lamb and was absolutely gorgeous. The man does beautiful work and I would love to be able to purchase this and possibly some more of his in the future. I am not sure if I will be able to make it to either of this years fairs as I may be moving. Thanks!

  3. Wayne Chance says

    I am looking for the website of a regular exhibitor that makes jewelry…believe the name is something like “spun gold originals.” Does this sound familiar?

    • Anita Chapman says

      Hi, yes I do paint fire screens and have them on display at the Gatlinburg fair. I did not display them in the July show this year, but I usually have a full mantle and display in my booth. You can contact me for further information.
      Thank you,
      Anita Chapman

  4. Barbara Caldwell says

    We attended last year’s Fair in October and purchased a wood coffee table. The Vendor was Anita Keeney (The Woodbox). I have tried all my contact information to get ahold of them to purchase a second table to match the first we bought, but the larger size. I get no response. We will be in Gatlinburg but must be back in Florida by Oct. 5th, so will miss the fair. Can you advise if this is a exhibitor, or how I could reach them and perhaps arrange to purchase a table from them prior to the fair since we can’t be there thru the start on October 9th. Any help would be appreciated.
