Guests can expect a wide variety to shop including everything from handcrafted jewelry, homemade pasta sauces, a variety of bath and body products and so much more,” says Becki Silverstein, the show’s founder. This year’s show is indoors and social distancing recommendations have been put in place to allow for a safe and enjoyable shopping experience for all. ”
COVID-19 safety precautions include:
- 6ft between each vendor booth
- Larger aisle walkways
- Hand sanitizer at the entrance
- One-way traffic at the event
- Masks requirement by both vendors and attendees
” To work alongside these artisans and those who appreciate their art is truly extraordinary, and really brings together the community.” Silversteins says.
A portion of all proceeds from each event are donated to local charities within the communities each show is held. To date, the show line has raised more than $55,000 for local non-profits. A portion of the proceeds from this spring’s Strongsville show will be donated to the Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank, a charity that distributes free books to children and families in need. The Avon show’s recipient is Prayers from Maria, a local non-profit dedicated to funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments and cure for deadly childhood brain tumors.
