Bi-monthly Philadelphia Events: June edition

On Tuesday night, I returned from a long drive from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. It was a 20 hour drive each way (we did stop overnight on the way back in Savannah, GA so we could watch the Flyers game). I spent almost a week down there where my 14 year old son was competing at the Future Collegian World Tour National Championships at the PGA National Golf course. His passion is golf, our passion is art. Since I’m a bit exhausted from this past week, this blog is going to be short and sweet. There are plenty of events going on in June, so try to make it to one of them and support your local Philadelphia artists and crafters. Don’t forget to check out the Events section of this site to see which Handmade Philly members will be vending at which events. Happy June!
