Marketplace: Upcoming Events

At the Pet Care and Adoption Fair 2017
At the Pet Care and Adoption Fair 2017

I have three weekend events in May, which is quite a lot! I didn’t have the chance to list and write posts about the new things before my first event (tomorrow) but I’ll be getting them up there—and making more—after the event this weekend. In the meantime…

SATURDAY, MAY 5, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Rennerdale Church Spring Arts & Crafts Fair
First United Presbyterian Church of Rennerdale, 151 Noblestown Road, Rennerdale, PA 15106

This event I’ll feature “felines and flowers”, both my inspirations from my cats and from nature and wildlife.

I’ll be introducing a few new things too!

  • handmade goods: trinket dishes, keepsake boxes, jewelry, table linens and more
  • garden flags
  • tote bags
  • small framed original artwork
  • framed and unframed prints of artwork
  • gift bags
  • books
  • greeting cards

The sale is indoors and out—two floors of vendors indoors, tents and tables outdoors



SUNDAY, MAY 20, 3:00 – 7:00 P.M.

HCMT/Pittsburgh C.A.T. Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser
J. Verno Studios South Side, 3030 Jane Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15203

Adults – $10
Children 5 and under – $5

I’ll have as much of my handmade goods as I can pack and set up, plus greeting cards, garden flags, prints of artwork on paper and canvas and selected originals and framed prints. This event raises a huge amount of money to support TNR and rescue, especially all the medical care all the cats receive.



SUNDAY, MAY 27, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Pet Day at Slippery Rock Campground Association
1150 W Park Rd, Slippery Rock, PA 16057, SRCA Ball Field

Also a Pet Parade Contest and Rabies Clinic
Pet Food & Supply drive to benefit the non-profit rescues in attendance.
Visit Slippery Rock Campground Association website for more information and directions.

I’ll have as much of my handmade goods as I can pack and set up, plus greeting cards, garden flags, prints of artwork on paper and canvas and selected originals and framed prints. This event is outdoors and is always fun.



SATURDAY, JUNE 23, 9:30 A.M. – 3:30 P.M.

Hearts and Paws Pet Care and Adoption Fair
South Park Fairgrounds Agricultural Building Area, 3734 Buffalo Drive, South Park, PA 15129

Admission is FREE
At least 40 vendors and animal rescue organizations attend.

I’ll have as much of my handmade goods as I can pack and set up, plus greeting cards, garden flags, prints of artwork on paper and canvas and selected originals and framed prints. I’ll be near HCMT and Pittsburgh CAT for this event that’s really fun for meeting a lot of pets and adoptable animals and seeing old friends and and meeting new ones. Most of all, I love getting out there with my stuff after spending hours in my studio.


Whew! And that’s only through June! I hope I see you somewhere, and if not you’ll get to see photos from these fun events.
