There will be 27 vendors selling their handmade wares from bourbon bottle tags to Maker’s Mark-inspired paintings on staves and much more. We have many new vendors this year, including Sycamore Hill, Kentucky for Kentucky and Legendary Boot Company from El Paso, Texas. Those Texans sure do love their bourbon (as do we all)! You’ll be able to find everything – gifts for yourself, family or friends of all different sizes and price points.
