If you live or will be in Salem, Oregon on May 4th, there is a local event happening called the Jane Austen Faire. It's a small craft fair with a vintage flair held at the IKE Box Café located downtown. The IKE box is a non-profit coffee shop with a beautiful ballroom/stage. The event is Free, with refreshments and regency inspired music, and the first 50 attendees will receive goodie bags to take with them!
I have never been to the IKE box yet, but I hear it has some delicious sweet and savory indulgences and brews local jolts of java from Sisters Coffee Company.
If you know me at all, I'm all about shopping local, and what a perfect excuse to have a girl's afternoon with coffee, lunch and shopping......perfect for Mother's Day which is right around the corner, and who knows you might even run into a certain wonder woman there. ;)
May 4th 10am-4pm
