This was just one of the 300 vendor booths at this year's Market Days show and sale.

One of the Southeast's largest fine arts and crafts events happened in Tallahassee over the weekend. The 56th Annual Market Days at the North Florida Fairgrounds attracted tens-of-thousands of shoppers.
The show and sale is a major fund-raiser for the Tallahassee Museum. Its President and CEO Russell Daws was more than happy with the huge turnout.

"We've got great happy shoppers. The holiday season's upon us and it's a great time to buy gifts."

Gifts from 300 artisans from near and far, whose wares packed the Fairground's many exhibit halls. Although Daws was quick to add the Museum has much more to offer beyond the yearly Market Days.

"And we've got activities throughout the year at the Museum. Check out our website at: tallahasseemuseum.org. And if you have any thoughts or anything you want to share, give me a call."

The Museum occupies more than 50 heavily wooded acres in Tallahassee's southwest quadrant, featuring wildlife exhibits, historic buildings, and a popular zip-line attraction.
