  1. I went yesterday to CraftBoston & it was fabulous! I got to meet some of my favorite artisans and gush to them-some much top quality work. Tons of jewelry-which is my love. If anyone out there has'nt been it's a definate must-see. Myother favorite show is the Paradise City Arts Festival-it won #1 arts festival destination from American Style magazine-a terrific mag if anyone has'nt checked it out.
