    • I’ve been to this many times – you’ll find jewelry, crafts, paintings, folk art, and other wonderful surprises! Last year I found this lace art.  The artist was selling pieces made with lace and the wine ring – but I had my own lace so she made me 3 lace rings using my lace. They now which hang in Zuber’s.
