I reached out to Heritage Day exhibitors about what they’ll be up to on Monday. I was a bit overwhelmed by the response. (Which is why I’ve had to run so many posts on the festival today!)
I only heard back from about half of the exhibitors, but was impressed by all they have to offer.
To reach the community, local businesses are offering a whole lot of incentives to stop at their booths. Be on the lookout for free:

We moved to Newton in 2012 when the original owner retired, and since then we’ve grown quite a lot. Sunny Window is a family business and my son Ian works with me at shows and in the studio making our top-quality lavender pillows, sachets, aromatherapy sprays and more. We are looking forward to returning to Heritage Day and seeing so many longtime customers – as well as meeting many new ones!
