Charlotte Hobbs Library Art and Artisans Fair

95 Main Street Lovell, Maine

9 am – 3 pm

This lively local show raises funds for the library in Lovell, Maine.  It draws a range of craftspeople from Maine and New Hampshire, and is a much loved event.  The first time I did this show, I saw a mother bear and two cubs cross the road right before I got to the school!
