Albany’s Gary House specializes in making pots for the succulents he grows. He said he loved making pots and growing succulents so it seemed natural to combine the two.

A unique booth featured homemade and organic pillows that help with sleep, migraines, neck pain and more. Chi Moore said he loves coming to festivals and being able to help those with headaches and other ailments. He added that he also enjoyed meeting the other vendors.
