Although last Friday’s weather “couldn’t have been worse,” the Lakeland Artisan’s Guild’s first Fall Fine Art and Craft Show turned out to be quite a success, said member Curran Copeland.

“For our first show, we were delighted with the good turnout and the enthusiasm of our patrons,” Copeland said.

While it wasn’t raining for most of Friday’s show, it was still pretty cold and damp, and the crowd was slim, although Copeland said it was a decent turnout for such “crummy weather.” On Saturday, though, he said that the weather was much better and helped bring in many more people.

Mildred Grasty, creator of Millie’s House Pieces, sat under her tent Friday afternoon bundled up. She said that just about everyone she had talked to so far that day had been from out of town. She said she was surprised that she was “probably the first person this morning to sell anything.”
