The excitement over Fair In The Square is even greater than usual at one Verona elementary school this year. One of the new vendors has product line that was inspired by, and named for, a classmate.

Katie Valentine New York is a line of baby bonnets and aprons made by Katie’s grandmother. “Katie was the model for all the bonnets when she was a baby,” says dad Matt Valentine, a Verona firefighter. “My mother-in-law is an amazing seamstress.”

The Valentines won’t be the only Verona residents selling products at Fair In The Square. Ruth Lepp is back, after being snowed out last year. Ronda Smith will be there with Bone Appetit, her homemade dog biscuit business. “This is only the second time I will be selling my products in public,” she says.

Among the other names you might know: Mary Jo Cuddihy with Grandmother’s Treasures, Laura Daniels’ LD’s Vintage and New, and Mark Eulie’s MetroMedical ID. Deborah Condrelli will be representing the Canterbury nursing home in Cedar Grove, and Edward Giblin and Greg Moore will both have displays on financial services. Susan Robinson, one of the newest advertisers on MyVeronaNJ.com, will be showing Stella & Dot jewelry and Elizabeth Vigna will showcase her Letter Bee Designs. There were still vendors being added as of last evening, so expect plenty of opportunities for gift getting and giving.

And Verona being Verona, there will also be lots of food to eat at the Fair and take home from Tortilla Sunrise, Eight Hills Caterers, Hobcaw Café and Jack’s Cafe.
