First Friday Favorites

Thanks to all the artists and shoppers who came out Friday night on Beach street. We all had our fill of chocolate and helped raise money for the American Heart Association while we were there. The weather was nice until about 4 when it started raining lightly. Hopefully there will be clear skies for March. We couldn't complain about the nice rainbow after the rain cleared though.

Here are some of pictures of my favorites from the Artist who were showing:

Chris Crowley's Alligator Foot

Triple Stranded Lava Necklace by Anne Nguyen

See you next month Friday March 5th on Beach Street.
