One of MP’s favorite things about this time of year is the abundance of craft shows and holiday fairs throughout the state. Fortunately, CP#1 is always game to shop. She and MP will spend a Saturday morning visiting a few beloved fairs, as well as shows that are new to us.

And before you think, there is no way I’m bringing my little one to a craft show, consider that many feature live music, crafting tables for kids, homemade lunches, cookie walks, and garage sale finds (we’ve often scored on gently used books + games).

MP loves shopping neighborhood craft fairs because there has never been a time she hasn’t discovered a talented local maker. Here are few highlights from over the years, and links to the shows where she originally found their work:

MP adores this time of year. There are inspired outdoor markets going on all over the state, and many offer live music, food, and crafts for the kiddos. This weekend, MP is looking forward to shopping the In Bloom Artisan Market at Doc’s Cafe in Cumberland.

There’s something especially cute about a little boy in a cap. CP# 2 prefers his papa’s hat of choice—a wool flat cap DP wears around town.

MP has been in search of a cap CP#2 can call his own. Thankfully, Dory Smith Graham of Bar Harbor’s Worthy Goods makes colorful, functional hats for kids and adults. We especially love the whimsical fabrics and patterns she uses for her designs. Her soft, cotton hats are cozy and washable, making them all the more kid-friendly.

You can find Graham’s Worthy Goods shop here. Or, if you want to see the hats up close—visit her booth at the Picnic Holiday Sale in Portland.
