Logan - I checked and there was nothing for sale other than raffle tickets at ours. The lady organiser said that people can 'show' crafts and put a contact card by them, but they don't allow selling. She said that they would probably allow it at larger shows though.

Some of the entries were amazing. There really are some fab gardeners out there. I've got so much to learn.
