It's that time of year when the weather cools down, the creative project lists get a little longer, and a little flier comes through the mail for one of our favorite events of the year.
Frances announced the date and time of its seventh Crafeteria, an annual gathering of local artists who sell their handmade knits, jewelry, paper goods, paintings, buttons, accessories, and more.
And take note, creatives: Frances is looking for vendors.
