report from Yulefest

I just got back from Yulefest, which I hadn’t heard about until this year, even though it’s is in it’s 28th year. Apparently I’m the only one who hasn’t heard of it though, because the place was mobbed. If you’re a fan of folksy Scandinavian crafts, and aren’t too claustrophobic, it’s worth checking out. There’s a vendor on the first floor who has some amazing vintage pieces. Just be sure to bring cash or checks, because they don’t all take credit cards. I had to leave a beautiful vintage hand-woven table runner behind, because I didn’t have enough cash on me.

Yulefest runs until 6pm tonight and from noon to 5pm tomorrow at the Nordic Heritage Museum in Ballard.
