On the International Space Station, brave astro-pioneers pass the time by making crafts—namely, dreamcatchers to catch the dreams of any nearby aliens dreaming of attacking Earth. Invest in earthbound artisanship with today's Groupon: for $5, you get two admissions to the Lewes Historical Society Craft Fair in Lewes on Saturday, July 9 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (a $10 value). Children under the age of 12 are admitted free.
The Lewes Historical Society's outdoor craft fair and fundraiser arrays more than 80 artisans from the mid-Atlantic region in front of a backdrop of historical structures. Visitors admire homespun jewelry, cozy up to quilts, and marvel at sculptures whittled from blocks of wood or slightly larger sculptures. Vibrant stained glass casts dazzling light, while an array of hand-thrown pottery quivers in fear of wayward elbows and undercover bulls. Picturesque cherry trees shade a cluster of picnic tables, ideal for listening to the festival's lineup of live music and noshing on the spread of baked goods and other refreshments for sale.
