Looking for a good gift or just something for yourself for a change? Come check out the front parking lot at Key Estero Shops this Sunday.
The Greater Fort Myers Beach Area Chamber of Commerce is holding the Key Estero Boulevard Shops Vendor & Craft Fair at the 1661 Estero Blvd. location from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no charge to attend.
Event chairperson Darlene Grossman said the show would feature local artisans, vendors and crafters from all parts of Florida. Browse through a selection of unique gifts and keepsakes for your home or that one of a kind piece of jewelry to enhance your wardrobe.
Key Estero Shops will be hosting a second vendor and craft fair this Sunday.
"We'll have vendors and crafters selling all different kinds of things. One can find jewelry, hats, collectibles, sunglasses, bracelets, clothing like beach-type summer dresses and a little bit of everything," she said. "We'll probably have 25-30 vendors there. There probably will be something for everyone."
The Beach chamber sponsored a similar event in February and, due to its success, a second one should be well received.
"We did one about six weeks ago, and it went really, really well. The response was overwhelming. It was such a success that we scheduled another which promises to be even better," said Grossman. "The Chamber continuously looks for new ways to promote the businesses in our community."
The event is expected to generate business among the shop owners at Key Estero as well.
"Caribbean Pearl will be open for lunch that day. So will Reece's Restaurant and Subway," said Grossman. Parking is free on the left side of the plaza as well as the back of it.
Ragady Megaforceband will provide live entertainment from 11: 30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Chamber organizers are hoping the Sunday event will become a monthly venture come next December.
"Basically, we decided to have it on Sunday, because a lot of working people run errands on Saturdays," said Grossman. "Most vendor fairs are on Saturdays, so we wanted to be different. We'd like to start in December because people needs gifts for the holidays."
