🎨 Weekend Update 9/1-9/4
First Friday, Artisans everywhere, and the last *unofficial* week of Summer on MV
Happy Labor Day Weekend! What many consider the last unofficial weekend of summer, we start to see the island slightly slow down as kids nationwide head back to school.
This weekend is a great time to celebrate the artisans of MV! We have so many opportunities to view the work of island artists and interact with them.
