  1. Last day of this popular street fair. Dropped by to see David Craig’s desert art against at Fluxx Gallery, then browsed the vendors and then wandered into an antique store called Nowhere Land at 414 E. 7th St. off of 4th Avenue. They have a free library (no kidding) where I found a 1944 edition of my favorite childhood book “Green Mansions”. Lots more to do till 6 p.m. today.

  2. Something for everyone at this spring fair: leather sandals, wall hangings, sculptures, jewelry, bowls w/ chopsticks, even sushi making boxes, and lots of delicious food and entertainment. Two more days of fun this weekend, and don’t forget to get your 4th Avenue Spring Street Fair tshirt w/ that cute lizard design on the poster.
