I think that you should visit Andrew Thornton's blog today and read about his stay in Hawaii for the Soft Flex Glass Art and Bead Festival. Soft Flex hosts a show in Honolulu twice a year, March and September. This small artisan show is brimming with talent. It is a perfect pairing with a Hawaii vacation for vendors and shoppers alike. If you don't already follow Andrew's blog, you really should. He always has such nice things to share. Then you should go ahead and book your tickets for the September show in Honolulu, HI. ~Aloha!
