Anacortes Arts Festival

Ooops, I promised the details about the Anacortes show this weekend, so you could plan ahead.

The Anacortes Arts Festival is HUGE. One of the largest art fairs in the Pacific Northwest, with a juried fine art exhibition, over 250 juried booth artisans, two music stages, international food court and beer garden, a hands-on youth area, fiber boutique at the Depot, a fine art exhibit, a working artist area, poetry reading at the port and more. The artists booth cover 6 whole city blocks, both sides of the street and a row down the middle too. So much to see and do. It's my best show of the summer, each and every year. So I'm looking forward to another fabulous weekend.

Dates: August 4, 5, and 6
Times: Friday and Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 10am-5pm
Location: Downtown Anacortes, on Commercial Ave between the port and 10th

Soapworks Studio booth location: same spot as last year, directly in front of La Vie en Rose Bakery, near the corner of 5th street, on the West side of the street. Yum - so many breakfast goodies to choose from.

I am bringing all the soap scrap bars I can possibly find here to the show this weekend. All the dings, dents and dropped on the pavement. All the leftover bars of discontinued frangrances. Some of the usual suspects which came out with a streak (beauty marks?) or seem a little off kilter. There will be a tub of soap seconds for sale at $1.00 each. "Come early for best selection." Ha, that means that the best ones will go fast and if you wait til Sunday afternoon, there will be just a few ugly bumpkins left.
