Here are a few photos I took at the fair last year.
As usual the fair was an interesting mix of fine art, craft, clothing, ceramics, photography, jewelry (both locally handmade and imported), mosaics, orchids, sculptures, calabash art,T-shirts, food, much socializing and more.
I think patrons enjoyed the good weather, eclectic offerings and the overall good vibe that is always found at this annual event!
A few of the interesting offerings from the Wanderer.
This banker-turned-artist creates art from recycled items including old plates, utensils, and pretty much anything she can find…
Some repurposed objects…
These were so good that all day Saturday I thought they were paintings, but they are actually cross stitched!

One of the mosaic vendors… some really cool stuff here!
The Jamaica Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (JSPCA) was there too with some adorable puppies and a massive cat that did not want to be disturbed!
YardEdge was right next to some vendors of palm wine from Togo – a great spot as this was some yummy stuff! Palm wine is fermented from palm trees and combined with a variety of different things to flavour it- sugar cane, ginger, lime, coconut, banana, “roots”, etc.
The sun was shining but it wasn’t too bad really…
Ceramics, photography, clothing…
More mosaics from this vendor from South Africa…
Loved these crosses…
This place had the best brownies ever!
Stephanie Stevens and Nicola de Lisser from Amuse had a wide assortment of jewelry and other exquisite items…

The rice bowl display seemed to fascinate everyone… rice- not just for eating anymore!
