This past weekend was the International Folk Festival in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Not only were all of my joints creaking, but my tent and display items were covered in a layer of dust. (It's been a while since my last show). At some fairs, your booth arrangement is better than others... I don't mean my items in my booth; I mean the vendors around me.
Once the rain finally stopped on Saturday, it was so neat to see that my booth stood in the perfect spot. The vendor to my left had PVC sculptures. (Yes, those birds and frogs are made out of PVC pipes). What screams beach more than tropical birds, especially those pink flamingoes? This couple will be at the same show I'm doing in Concord, NC next month and I can't wait to show my mom the birds. I think she needs one on her lanai ;)
To the right side of me was the Island Breeze Soap company. They had a plumeria bar I just had to buy. I thought the grass skirts were a wonderful idea for the booth - made it looked like we were purposely put right near each other. And then there was my booth. I got a new banner that is the beach scene that I feel is more fitting to my style. (And I still steal the DVD shelf out of my living room before every show... one of these days, I'll have to get something new.)
I was so tired after this weekend that I am glad I have 3 1/2 weeks until the next one!
