I recently moved back to Houston and sell hairbows. A friend here also makes bows, and we're looking into going in on a booth at a craft show or two. I stumbled upon your blog when looking for craft fairs online. I saw your post on upcoming fairs you'll be at and am wondering if you could help me get information on how to enter them as well. Thanks for any help you can give me! ~Cami mybabyhairbows@gmail.com
