“I had a really good time (May 5th). Just the fact that it was new…we just go with no expectations. If anything I think the market surpassed all of my expectations,” said owner of Alapash Terrariums Marco Chavarry. “There was such a nice variety of products, so very diverse- I go connect with vendors and hang out with friends. It’s more than just selling the art.”
