We can’t believe there are just a couple of weeks left of spring! Say hello to the first summer month of the year at the 22nd Annual St. Pete Beach Beach Corey Area Craft Festival, happening Saturday and Sunday June 6-7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Corey Avenue and Gulf Boulevard in St. Pete Beach. Crafters from all over the U.S. come together for a weekend of great outdoor family fun.
One great way to celebrate this summer’s almost-arrival is by sharing the talents of ACE crafters with your family and friends. Bring them to the festival, support our participating crafters and take home something handcrafted with love as a way to remember the occasion. But what about those who can’t go? Why not get them a little something they can enjoy this summer and beyond? Start a tradition in your circles — get almost-summer gifts for your loved ones!
Not sure how to go about it or what to get? Here are some of the participating crafters who will be in attendance at this weekend’s festival in St. Pete Beach.
Those who enjoy decorative wall art with a purpose will fall in love with the creations from Ocean of Gold, by Sindi Karman.
