Christmas Made in the South is Nov 28, 29, 30. Does anyone here go to this. I used to have a problem with paying to get into somewhere so I could shop, but I went last year. It was nice...I bought some great lotion and some great hot drink mixes (coffee based) last year.

I, too, have a problem with spending money in order to spend money :-) But I did go last year and found some really nice things. There were a number of food tables where they had samples and then you could buy the mixes so that you could make the delectables at home. I found that some vendors' prices were a tad high, but most were just right or even underpriced. I thought that last year's diversity of products offered was enjoyable.

Here's a link to a webcoupon for $1 off the admission ...

I've gone to that every year, and the last two years, I've been greatly disappointed. Fewer vendors, fewer food samples, etc., than prior years. I almost always buy something, especially from the people who sell the pecan pie muffin mix (deeee-lish!) and the soup mix.

Since money's a bit tighter this year, I'm not going for the reason that mawipafl said: I don't like spending money in order to go inside and spend money.

I agree that I was disappointed last year and the year before. But, it's not super expensive adn I like buying products from small businesses and crafters, so to me, especially in this economy, I don't mind going to an event like this and supporting non-chain retailers.

If you go, try the Pretty Baby Soap company's lotion (if they are there). Great stuff.

It is a legitimate indoor craft show and the artists/crafters are juried in, so an entry fee is appropriate.

If it was an outdoor show, such as the San Marco art festival or the Fernandina Eight Flags Shrimp Festival (which is more of an art show than a shrimp fest), then the show producer can waive the entry fee, but indoor shows of any decent quality are usually going to charge.

Just a little inside scoop from an art festival lover .

I haven't gone to the Christmas Made in the South show for years, it's really not my kind of show, but it is one of the most highly attended shows in Jacksonville. I think it's worth checking out at least once .

I'm not saying it's inappropriate to charge a fee. I'm just saying I don't like it, and as such, I won't be going. Others won't be similarly dissuaded.

Does anybody remember the name of the booth that sells the coffee based drinks. I know they have an online site but can not remember their name. I love in Tx now and am not able to attend and I want to order some of their cappacciono mixes.
