Craft Show review

Some of the photos in the slide show were from the Heritage Hollow tent at the show. They started doing that a few years ago. It's a HUGE tent right on the Town Square and all old timey demonstrations under there, nothing for sale. They also set out a row of hay bales for people to sit on since it's shady. I love seeing all the old ways of making things.

I didn't take many photos of the actual crafter booths cause it's too dangerous to walk around! I didn't even see 1/4 of the show and I bought over $100 from one vendor!

I had a great two days of sales. Friday was pretty crazy until around 2:00-3:00 and then it slowed down. Both days were pretty hot, so I didn't miss having a booth AT ALL!!!!!! I was sitting in a/c all day, didn't have to pay a booth fee, didn't have to pack stuff up and lug it around, and didn't have to sit out in the HOT sun. It was in the high 80's both days. I think this was the first time that it didn't rain at all. Not even a sprinkle!

I'm opening tomorrow for a few hours (11-3) in case there are still tourists in town that didn't make it in. I'll finish up some stuff today to take in, so there will be something new. Only sold one doll all weekend. That was surprising, but you never know from one show to the next what will be popular.

My next show will be at Wolf Laurel Country Club in Mars Hill, NC on September 5th which is Labor Day weekend, then I'll be at the Waynesville Apple Festival on October 17th.

enjoy your Sunday.
