Students and their mothers will get a chance to shell out the Monet to a wide array of regional vendors at the Moms’ Spring Arts and Crafts Fair.The fair will take place today and tomorrow at Beasley Coliseum and will be open to the public.“I can’t tell you how much it means to me when people say how they like what they got from me,” said Liz Wilhite, owner of Willendorf Soapworks and former WSU chemistry professor.Wilhite specializes in soaps, scents, and overall “turning your bathroom into an oasis” products that are made from North American ingredients.Wilhite said that after she left teaching, she wanted to mix chemistry into a more youthful art form.Ginger Gallagher of DLG Enterprises, the craft fair promotion company, said there will be more than 100 vendors at the fair over the next two days.A lot of vendors see events such as this as a great opportunity to get their names out and possibly expand their business with collectors.“It’s a great income stream for me,” said Cori Dantini, an illustrator who will be vending this weekend. “It’s just really fun to see my people, there’s a lot of locals that come out.”Karen Rohn, a photographer from western Washington, said this sort of event serves as a powerful opportunity for her to reach a whole new crowd. She said she leaves Mom’s Weekend with at least one collector.Fairs as massive as the one put on for Mom’s Weekend usually take a great deal of preparation.Wilhite said she started preparing for Mom’s Weekend as soon as she was finished with the autumn arts and crafts fairs.“It’s a lot of hard work doing craft shows. You’re never really sure if you are fully prepared,” Dantini said. “It’s a super intense way to earn a living.”
