As usual there will be a wide variety of handmade items including traditional craft, fine art and country crafts.  Although I haven’t had time to walk the show myself my customers tell me that there is always a good amount of jewelry! You will find unique gifts for everyone on your shopping list as well as beautiful handcrafted furnishings for your home.

AND if the show doesn’t have enough for you – don’t forget to stroll thru the amazing shops along Main Street.  You will not be disappointed by the variety and number of shops!  Just check the listing of shops here MAIN STREET SHOPS

Main Street in Historic Chester is a pretty tree-lined street.  The brick sidewalks are usually bustling with people shopping the unique stores and eateries which are just steps away from the show. You will discover a wonderful selection of crafts, antiques, home furnishings, and specialty items. COME EARLY AS MOST SHOPS WILL BE OPEN PRIOR TO THE CRAFT SHOW OPENING AT 10.

FALL is the perfect time to make a special day trip to Chester – any weekend!  The  foliage as you are driving into Chester is beautiful  and worth the trip in itself.  I think the fall might be my favorite time to be on the streets of Chester.  When is your favorite time to be in Chester?

Want to stay near Chester so you can hang out longer?  Check out The Whistling Swan Inn – its not too far away and its lovely.

The Chester Craft Show is promoted and managed by Jim & Sara Burnet who are very familiar with Chester as they used to own a shop on Main Street!  I believe there are usually about 300 exhibitors in the field – so there is definitely something for everyone.  This show consistently ranks as one of the best shows in the country.   Wow!
