Six to Shop in Springfield

Braum’s An Affair of the Heart, consistently voted one of the country’s top contemporary craft shows by Sunshine Artist magazine, will return to the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds in Springfield, Mo., Sept 6-8.

Braum’s An Affair of the Heart is a handmade, boutiques and gourmet market that started over 30 years ago in Oklahoma. It is now the largest and longest running show of its kind in the state, and working to bring this long-standing shopping tradition to Springfield.

The third annual Braum’s An Affair of the Heart show will feature over 160 booths of handmade, boutiques and gourmet food items including everything from jewelry and up-cycled furniture to clothing, home décor, handcrafted lotions and soaps and much more. The vendors represent 10 states traveling to Springfield to sell their goods over three days.  The show provides shoppers with a unique opportunity to browse over 100 pop-up shops from across the nation selling unique, one-of-a-kind items celebrating the craft, skill, art and style of the vendor.
