Great Day!

The Crafty Feast Freedom Festival was a success!  Sorry about the delay in posting...this has been a crazy week.

I tried to hang in there for the fireworks but alas!  The kids were worn out and so were my feet!  All in all it was a great day.  We set up from 1 pm until a little after 8 pm and did really well considering.  The craftspeople had to compete with over a hundred open stores in the center so I don't think that sales were as good as they could have been for everyone.  I didn't realize how much stuff I had until I saw it all laid out.  My top sellers?  It was a toss up between the ankh necklaces and earrings and the soft swirl hats, which was a surprise considering the oppressive Carolina heat.

I got to meet my "blogging idol" The Crochet Diva with a Sewing Problem.  She is sooooo nice and had a great selection.  My daughter fell in love with her owl pillows.  She's a fellow Carolinian (North,'s all the same).  We are a resourceful bunch.  I got to meet the owner of TotToppers.  I also got to meet the owner of FeatherBrainz!  She was set up right next to us and my kids loved her.  She did have a big bowl of candy and an endless supply of plastic flowers so that probably had a lot to do with it :-).

Well I posted all of my pictures to my Facebook albums.  I'm feeling a little under the weather so I will probably post the highlights here later.  I wanted to do an update since I was MIA for a few days.
