We survived another year of fest, or shall I say we ate our way through it! For those of you that don't know what Cranfest is, let me tell ya. It's a festival in Warrens, Wisconsin with over 1300 hundred vendors and over 3 miles of booth frontage-flea market, arts & crafts and food-tons of really good food.
Let us start with the food, that was a REALLY big highlight of our day. We ate breakfast sandwiches, gyros, chocolate dipped cheese cake on a stick, had pina colada/banana smoothies and of course we needed something for our 45 minute ride home- so we each bought large bags of kettle corn to top it all off!
As we made our way through the 1300+ booths, we actually did make some fabulous purchases other then just the food, really we did! Purchased some FUN jewelry. Initial pendants made from scrabble letters, charms and vintage bracelets. We were suckers for all the faux stuff too- you know the fake designer purses and sunglasses-we actually purchased Paris Hilton sunglasses and Channel ones for only $10.00 each- can you believe it? what a deal!!
It was in the flea market area where we scored big time. Finding some cute wood floral things(which we plan to use soon with salvaged hooks), vintage letters and numbers, rusted license plates from the 40's and old metal cigar tins. All in all we have to say, it was another successful year at the fest
(We love the back of this booth)
