StashFest 2014 is coming up soon – March 29 & 30 – and we have some very exciting artists for you this year! This special Museum fundraising event promises to be a unique shopping experience, as well as a lot of fun! This event is highly anticipated and very well attended so we recommend getting the Preview Sale ticket. For only $12, you get to shop an hour before the general public. Our new sponsor, PEMCO Insurance, will be there to greet the early bird shoppers and take pictures, and there will be treats and door prizes as well! To see this year’s artists, for more information, or to buy Preview Sale tickets, visit the event website at www.stashfest.com.
