A Street Fair with Flair
Posted on 05 July 2012
On Saturday morning, I’ll be trekking over to the East side of Cleveland for Loganberry Books’ Author Alley event.
Author Alley is part of the Larchmere Festival. The festival’s website encourages attendees to “Celebrate your independent spirit with dozens of local merchants and indie vendors of kitsch and collectibles. This is a street fair with flair.”
I have never been to this festival, and so far had pictured Author Alley as a standard book fair — but a fair with flair? Count me in.
Also, I may or may not be at risk of leaving my booth to explore the festival and possibly buy a bunch of antiques and art that I don’t have room for, even in the new house. But hey, I have an independent spirit to celebrate. This is serious.
In any case, if you’re reading this near the Cleveland area, I’ll be sitting outside Loganberry Books with my copies of Living Arrangements, some sunscreen, and possibly a funky hat I purchase on the spot at the festival.
How do you celebrate your independent spirit?
