Dacia Marszalek

Does anyone have a contact name or number for who organized the vendors for this event? I paid cash for a necklace from a jewelry vendor who said she would mail it to me because she didn’t have what I wanted in stock. I bought it on Sat. May 28 and she said I would have it in a few days. All I have is a handwritten receipt with a cell phone # on it and her name is Darcy. I called her to follow up and she’s not returning my calls. Any help would be appreciated!

Dr. Brent

Hi, Dacia. Reach out to Joe Todd Campbell at The Finishing Touch in Sharon Springs. He has the complete vendor list with contact information
