Ann Arbor's annual Fairy Day is on Sunday August 6 at the Sunday Artisan Market. This is a great event for kids with facepainting, a treasure hunt, little prizes, free lemonade and cookies, Jonathan Wright (Ann Arbor's famous fairyologist), and more. If you have kids age 3 to 15, dress the girls in fairy outfits and the boys in pirate gear, and have fun at this free event. Parking in the entire area is free on Sundays. (315 Detroit Street - market address)

The Ann Arbor Markets are in full swing now (Saturday Farmers Market, 8-3, and Sunday Artisan Market 11-4). I have missed several weeks at the Northville Market (Thursdays) because of threatening weather. If you want to know if I am at a market, call my phone number on the morning of the market -(734) 525-3549.
Daren (734) 525-3549; call or email to place an order.

I've been designing and making bags for over 40 years. My styles are simple and functional. What really makes the products is the wonderful fabrics I find. I think I have an eye for color, and I know what my customers like. I look at more than 10,000 fabrics a year, searching for unusual and beautiful fabrics that will work for me and that my customers will like. It's like a treasure hunt.
