Many people who have headed to the Fourth Avenue Spring Street Fair have come looking for delicious food and interesting items. 'Interesting' may be the perfect description for a both that stopped many people in their tracks. 
 
"They just laugh and once they actually get to see our product they get pretty excited," Traci Cole explained.
 
Cole is one half of 'Hart and Cole' - a business that makes furniture for your four-legged friends.
 
"They don't expect to see rustic pet furniture at an art fair," Cole laughed. 
 
But, that unique name has been drawing many people in this weekend.
 
"We have beautiful wood on our property and we started to make log furniture and we found that log furniture was very beautiful and very heavy,but it didn't quite fit into most people's homes," Cole explained. "We started making pet products and it was an instant success."
 
It is the unfamiliar finds that bring people like Jerri Mani to the Spring Street Fair. 
 
"Definitely something unique," Mani explained. "You always want to look for I think wind chimes are always unique here, portraits are always unique here - um, the people are unique - why not?!"
 
Mani has a chance to stroll through more than 400 different arts and crafts booths and for first-timer Cole - she says, the crowd has been overly receptive to her and her company's designs. 
 
"It's been a wonderful show - we'll definitely be back," Cole said.
