MonarchMadnessflyer2

I am proud to announce that I will be a vendor at this most awesome event, Monarch Madness. Monarch Butterfly paintings, magnets, lampshades, fine art cards & 11 x17 posters of this infamous colorful butterfly will be available at my canopy: a variety of other items also. The festival runs from 10am-3pm, on Saturday September 12 at Weldon Spring Site.

Other activities will include butterfly tagging, guided hikes on the site’s 150-acre restored Howell Prairie, educational stations and hand-made product vendor booths, and crafts for kids like making butterfly seed bombs from native wildflower seeds. In keeping with the “journey to Mexico” theme, Taco Truck StL will be on hand offering its authentic Mexican food for sale. People are also welcome to bring their own picnics and everyone will be able to enjoy their food to the sounds of local musicians.

I was a vendor at Tower Grove Farmers’ Market in July and a most gracious buyer purchased one of my handmade butterfly cards & asked me to be in this event. I am most honored. Thank you.
