Preview of Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show

The 36th annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show opened tonight. The show, which is the museum's only fundraiser raised over $500,000 last year, is one of the best in the country. The preview party offered great music, food and art. Patrons, who were looking to buy unique for loved ones, were in a buying mood. Many were carrying multiple bags.

Suzanne Cohn has one of the most famous craft and glass collections in the country. It is worth paying  attention to what she buys. She liked this wood purse, which costs around $200, because wood is "so tactile."

Interior Designer Barbara Eberlein bought these earrings

With England and Ireland selected as the guest countries this year, it is no surprise that  fascinators, ranging from $30 to $350, were available at the show.
