Anyone who has any pull with the weather divas, please put in a good word. We've had rain the past two years at Celtic Fest Chicago, and the weather report is looking threatening again this year. Last year we had one foot of water in the back of our booth after hours of downpour, and it's less fun showing our Celtic jewelry to soaked Celts.
On the up side, Celtic Fest Chicago rocks as a show for crafters. The people of Chicago recognize quality and are willing to pay a fair price for it.
Chicago is also one of the best cities I've ever been in for Food. We'll be dropping in at Vong's Thai Kitchen for some Asian Fusion cuisine, and some others of Chicago's finest food establishments as well.
So, come on out, hear some great Celtic music, have a brew or two, and peruse the fine craft booths. You'll find silver Celtic jewelry (Sean's Celtic Creations, Michael Hayman & Reflective Images are our favorite "other" jewelers), clothing, art, photos and some other very unique Celtic items.
If you can't make it to the show, kindly visit us at uniquecelticjewelry.com and see what we stuffed our luggage with for the 6 hour flight from Ashland, Oregon to Chicago.
I'll be posting about the show next week, so if you miss it, tune in then for all the news.
