To enjoy the start of summer, we decided to take a quick trip to one of my favorite places – Charleston, South Carolina. There are few places as rich in history or as adorably quaint as the city of Charleston. And, while we are there, we always get away for a bit of time at the beach, some window shopping and a carriage ride, of course.

The Piccolo Spoleto Crafts Fair for 2012, which is produced by the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs and the College of Charleston School of the Arts, was a feast for the eyes. The Piccolo Spoleto is an all-encompassing series of events that took place between May 25th and June 10th.

One part of the festival is the Crafts Fair that had its 33rd year. It is a juried fine crafts show that includes the works of over 90 artists each weekend and takes place over two weekends.

The show took place at Wragg Square Park in downtown Charleston and there were 95 spaces available each week for those who wanted to display their wares. The items on display included everything from modern art and home-made rugs to pottery, antiques and beyond. Here is a peek at some of the amazing artists that were included in the show.
