I live in Oklahoma City and have attended the Affair of the Heart many times over the years and enjoyed it. It is a 3-day affair here, and you can go multiple times.

It has changed through the years, though, in my opinion. It really used to be a marketplace for lots of handmade items. You could find some really unique things.

The last time I went was a couple of years ago, and I was disappointed. There are more and more "storefront" type booths from all over the country. It has gotten very commercial, and the handmade things are in the minority.

I remember long lines at a booth that manufactured velour bunny rabbits. They were cute, but machine made, with monogrammed ears. You had to place an order and they sent them to you.
