This is where I'll be this weekend!

Saturday, October 16, 2010
10am - 5pm
Downtown Waynesville


During the last 21 years, the Apple Harvest Festival has grown to a premier one-day celebration in the charming historic mountain town of Waynesville.

With more than 125 exhibitors and 25,000 people expected, we will gather for a glorious day of color to celebrate the fall harvest. Enjoy a backdrop of the picturesque mountains of Western North Carolina as you celebrate everything apples.

Handmade crafts, local food and continuous live entertainment will delight even the most seasoned visitor during this annual celebration. Entertainment will include local mountain music, cloggers and the occasional character!

Take home a peck of locally grown apples from the county apple growers association.

The Children's Play Area will feature the latest and greatest . Activities, games, and more will be provided. the 21st Annual Apple Harvest Festival featured the Waynesville Police Department ident-a-kid program and the Waynesville Fire Department fire safety demonstrations.  (text and graphic copied from the Haywood County website.  Hope it's ok??)

This show is always a bitter/sweet one for me.  Three years ago, my oldest brother died of cancer the day I did this show.  He was in PA in the hospital and I was down here in NC.  He passed away at the same time that I was packing up my booth to go home.  So, it will forever remind me of that sad day.  On the positive side, I sold 47 stitcheries that day.  Making it a bitter/sweet memory.

My booth this year will be kind of in front of Mast General Store.  Booth #16 c&d.   My friend Joy Bennett from The Lace Toadstool will be selling her handbuilt pottery that she makes in her home studio and then presses antique lace into for fabulous, unique pottery treasures.  Come see us~we've got a double booth!
And, another friend of mine will be selling her handmade soy candles, soaps and lotions!  Martha Young from My Father's Light.  I don't know her booth number, but if you start smelling something good (other than the kettle korn), it just might be her booth!

That is going to be a little tough. I am sorry you lost your brother.
Hang in there though it sounds like a worthwhile show. Be strong and sell lots!!!

I like this blog name--it suits the info and gal doing it. I couldn't comment over at the Bubblegum blog. Sorry I didn't win one of your dolls but happy for those who did! Why don't you just sell from this blog? Just thinking.....

Linda, I do most of my selling online at etsy. I use the blog to show when I've finished new stuff, but don't have it set up to buy directly from the blog.
I like the name too, but I'm not selling too many outhouse items anymore. But, I am known with that name, which is why I decided to keep it. :)
thanks!
