We have had gorgeous weather here for over a week but unfortunately Sunday it rained all day. The Heritage Festival was an outdoor event. It was located in one of my favorite local towns. I thought that it would be wonderful to be there and participate in such a fun event. But it was an outdoor festival and rain or shine. Well, the rain came and of the 28 vendors who were supposed to line the busy main street of this town, only 4 came. I was there bright and early, the first one, I set up with high hopes that it would clear out and maybe turn into a good day but the rain carried on all day. My greatest disappointment came when I realized that there was space in the building where the fundraising for the Heritage Society was taking place. No one checked on the vendors throughout the whole day. The only sign to draw attention was right outside the building and we were located about 1/4 of a mile away on the street. Those in charge didn't even realize until late in the morning that only 4 vendors were there. We were not even offered a cup of coffee throughout this miserable day. It would have been wonderful if they had invited us into the building, since there was so few of us and it could easily accommodate us. I felt that in the end they were only concerned with receiving the amount that we paid for our space but not with the comfort or success of the vendors. Needless to say, no one stopped at the booths and I did not have any sales.
I did take the time to visit Brown and Hopkins Country Store. It is such a fun place to visit and I always stop in when I am in the area. I was also able to enjoy some of the many antique shops that line the streets of the town. At least that made the day a bit more fun and brought me in out of the rain for a bit.
Here are some of the extra things I made for the show.
