This past Saturday, I participated in the Western Wake Farmer's Market's 1st Annual Fall Craft Festival. Now, I approached this day with some trepidation... a 1st annual event - expect chaos when you show up and few customers, but boy was I surprised.
When you show up, they cross your name off a list, send you down the row in the parking lot and show you where to park (1st come, 1st serve) so they just filed you in right after the other. This was nice because there was no last minute moving of your display. They had a portable ATM on site and obviously had done enough advertising because not only was there a steady stream of customers the entire day, this was my best show this year!Granted I did take my camera with me, but failed to take any photos of my booth (always seems to happen...), but I would like to take a moment to introduce you to the great couple that had the booth next to me: Lisa and Jeff Ross of Eclectikos. They have beautiful pottery and I picked up two of their ornaments. The one above is for me :) I love celtic inspired designs - although this is currently on my mantle next to some Indonesian stuff, it still looks good.
And this one I bought for my Aunt, the only member of my family who is probably more of a nature lover than me. My picture doesn't really show it, but it is a hummingbird on the right and flowers on the left. I think it will be a great box topper for a present this upcoming Christmas!
Once I got home Saturday afternoon, I started thinking about all of the other gifts I should have been looking to buy - but hopefully, I'll find Eclectikos again in another show this fall.
