A Wet Fall Festival

28 Sep

I rushed home for work yesterday and jumped into the car I had packed the night before and took off for Watson’s Fall Festival in State Center to try and sell my soaps and other items.  I’d been watching the weather all day, and it looked like it was going to be close.

By the time I started up my gravel road, I wasn’t sure whether or not we’d end up having the market.

By the time I got to State Center and put gas in the car, the leading edge of the storms had arrived.

I sat in my car for a little while, and let the worst of the rain pass.  I felt bad for the couple setting their tent up while it was pouring.

Can you tell rain is pouring down the windshield?

When the rain had finished, we set up.

There was even a bit of sunshine for a little bit, but that time many of the vendors and the bounce tent and horse-drawn hay rack rides had cancelled.

That means that there weren’t many people.

Still, it was nice to see people I hadn’t seen in a while, and I did have a few customers.

Almost Back in Business

17 Jul

I have spent a lot of time this summer cleaning and painting in the soap room.  I’ve been making new inventory and getting ready to be open on the weekends again.

I’m almost there.  My hope is to be open every Saturday after the first of August.  If the garden cooperates, I’ll even be able to add fresh produce.

The Greatest Thing Since

Sliced bread!  I am baking for the farmer’s market again, so I decided to kick it up a notch.

I bought a bread slicer.

I decided I should use one of the loaves I still have left in my freezer from last year to practice on.

It works!

I think they look good.

Hopefully, I won’t have to bring any back home with me.

I hope you’ll come back tomorrow to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.
