Saturday Snapshot: Crafts as Far as the Eye Can See

Saturday Snapshot is a weekly meme hosted by Alyce at At Home With Books. The guidelines are to post a photo that you or a friend or family member have taken and then link it back to Alyce's original post for the week. Photos can be old or new and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see.

After being holed up at home for most of the week working, I really needed to get out and clear my head. I bundled up, headed out, and arrived at the Butterdome Craft Show. This show is a big deal in these parts, with vendors from across Canada descending on Edmonton for 4 days of crafty goodness.

I had not attended for about 5 years so found myself wandering up and down the aisles in search of something unique, something worth buying. Alas, there was nothing that caught my eye enough. It was interesting though, to come across vendors who I remembered from my first show twenty years ago.

(FYI - "Butterdome' is the colloquialism for the University of Alberta's Universiade Pavilion, because of the buildings bright yellow exterior. The Pavilion is the multi-purpose arena which houses soccer games, field hockey games, ceremonial events (i.e. Remembrance Day service), indoor track, etc, etc, you get the picture. It is also where the world's largest dodgeball game took place in February 2012!)


  1. I'm not normally into shopping at craft fairs, but that one looks like it's big enough to have something to interest everyone.

  2. Wow, looks like a great place to go browsing!

  3. Wow, it looks like quite an event! Glad you got out and enjoyed it.

  4. I'm pretty sure I went to something like that back in the 80s when I lived in Edmonton!
