Vendor Shoutouts

At Otafest 2009 we are graced with the presence of over 20 different Japanese culture related vendors selling a variety of items to our continually growing patron count. Our vendors have strived to bring in materials that are not easy to find locally in the hopes of maximizing the enjoyment of the average Otafest-goer. The following is a shout out by a few of the vendors that wanted to let you know they’re coming to the festival, so you can know what to look forward to in the Otafest 2009 vendor room!
