Rotary Arts & Crafts Fair Recap
We had a great time at the Rotary Arts & Crafts Fair! It was held both Saturday and Sunday the 14th & 15th and we ended up going on Sunday. It was the most beautiful day out! The island was packed and most of them were at this fair!
There were so many amazing booths at the Rotary Arts & Crafts Fair with great things to look at and buy. One of our favorites was the man selling his handmade benches and chairs with fish carved into them. They were beautiful! Brendan loved the one with the tarpon on it.
Our other favorite exhibitor at the Rotary Arts & Crafts Fair was the photography by Dennis Goodman. They were beautiful photos taken on Sanibel of views and wildlife and displayed on canvas. They were absolutely STUNNING! I wanted all of them.
After walking around the Rotary Arts & Crafts Fair, we headed inside the Sanibel Community House to check out the Silent Auction. This was a HUGE silent auction. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club got a lot of donations from many of the island businesses. There were great items varying from art pieces to vacations and gift cards to island restaurants. I ended up bidding on and winning 2 tickets on the Thriller boat. I will definitely be featuring my trip on a future 100 Things to do on Sanibel & Captiva.
We had a perfect day at the Rotary Arts & Crafts Fair and we will keep you posted as to their next great event!
