As a true lover of summertime, I am always seriously sad to see it come to an end. I would rather sweat to death than put on pants any day of the week, so there is always a melancholy feeling for me when the days start to get shorter. Now just because I prefer the hot, lazy days of summer does not mean I don’t appreciate the seasonal fun that fall brings! One of my favorite fall activities to attend AND participate in is craft shows! Here is a list of some of the best ones around Columbus this fall to attend, and maybe even get a head start on some Christmas shopping!
