This annual festival (10am-6pm) hosts a number of live musical acts all day, great food and drink, arts and craft vendors, and so much more in the closed-off street around 800 Brandywine Boulevard.

Some of our Delaware Etsy Street Team members will have all kinds of new work for sale.
Here are some items from their Etsy shops, although today, you can meet them in person if you make it to the festival!

May 2013 First Friday on and Local

Welcome to the May First Friday Art Walk Weekend here on our blog for our Delaware Etsy Street Team.

This is a monthly post where we link up to a thread on our Team discussion page, where our local Etsians can link up work from their Etsy shops, and you can click away and see all kinds of cool stuff from Delaware and surrounding local areas.

This event is officially hosted by the Art Walk Etsy Team (AWETeam) as a blog hop over on the AWETeam blog.

Over there you can find Location teams, like our team - where you can virtually blog hop around the world via Etsy shops (once more location teams sign up). There are also Theme teams and the official AWETeam member post.

Here are some items from our team members (see more HERE).
