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.
Hi Bugga!! {waving} You're one of my favorite SCSers because I ran into you in real life, do you remember???

Those bunnies sound cute, but the one is Tulsa is very commercial, too. I've not lived in Oklahoma that long, but the original handmade sounds really cute. There's other handmade craft shows (like Alliday) that sound good, too. I haven't been, but I'm hoping to this year!
