  • I am an a New England Artisan and I have always enjoyed seeing the work of other artists featured here each year. Your presentation is usually lovely.
    This year you have done the artists featured this year a huge disservice. The products, especially the hand made cards, pens and jewelry, are very difficult to see. Who could tell what the hand knit sweater or the throw in the home section look like? Based on your article, I can’t imagine who would buy anything here.
