Cramming everything in my van.
Setting up all my displays.
Discovering what I forgot.
Sitting in the southern heat.
Needing a "break", and finding my daughter has decided to take a walk and scope out the competition.
But my most favorite part?
Visiting with old friends (fellow vendors).
And making new friends (customers).
Lots of them.
So here is where you can find me locally for the next few months.
The Evening Farmers Market in historic downtown Statesville, North Carolina.
We open every Thursday from 4 to about 6 from April through October.
This is such a great group of people, the farmers, the live entertainment, our balloon guy, and of course, our customers.
Next up, on October 3rd, I'll be at the October Fall Vendor Expo at the Statesville Rec Center. This is a charity event for a local teen who is battling cancer.
On October 17th, I will (hopefully) be at the Taylorsville Apple Festival.
I say hopefully because I haven't received my vendor packet yet. But this is a very large festival. I did it about 15 years ago, and I would love to get back into it.
This is my second year with this show, and my third show with this promoter.
Now I know that you can't have a show without crafters and artists, but I also firmly believe that it's the promoter that can make or break a show. And Melissa Friend is an amazing promoter. Concerned about her vendors, and works tirelessly to spread the word. I just love her. :0)
So, there you have it.
And here you can find me.
How about you?
What are some your your favorite shows, to participate or just visit?
