On The Road with the Moo Crew

This weekend a few of our team members will be at art fairs and markets in Oregon and Brookfield.  If you're in the area, stop by, get to know them and shop directly for cool handmade wares.  If not, please share this post on Facebook and Twitter to encourage your friends and family who are to shop local and shop handmade! 

Peter McMasters, a.k.a. "the Hat Guy", of Forest Academy Alpacas will be at the Hayloft Gallery Art Fair on Saturday, June 18th and Sunday, June 19th from 10am - 5pm both days.  The Hayloft Gallery is located at 1239 S. Fish Hatchery Rd in Oregon, WI.

Enjoy a lovely, but short, drive into the country for this fresh, unique "on-the-farm" art fair featuring fine art and fine craft that blend nature with creativity.  Fair-goers can make a day of it by taking in other activities and events in the area, such as: picking strawberries at Carndale Farms (just 1/2 mile from art fair), shopping for plants at Winterland Nursery, or going on the Parade of Homes at The Legend (at Bergamont).

Peter will be selling his unique handmade hats many of which are handfelted from the fiber of his own animals raised just outside of Evansville.   They continually add more product for each show so be sure to stop by and see what's new.

Tilney & Ryan of MANvsGEORGE will be at the Brookfield Farmers' Market, "Market & More Day", on Saturday, June 18th from 7:30am -12pm.  The market is located at 2000 N. Calhoun Road in Brookfield, WI. 

Market & More is held the 3rd Saturday of each month and is an extension of Brookfield's popular farmers' market.  MANvsGEORGE will be among dozens of handmade arts & crafts vendors on the plaza next to the farmers' market stalls.  They create colorful greeting cards printed on 100% recycled paper, with designs that wrap around from the front to the back of the card.  They also sell variety packs of greeting cards to keep you prepared throughout the year and poster-sized prints.
