in our town. My sister Bev and I used to do this one show
every year. It was always a biggy. Now I just go and
wander around looking at all the stuff. This year was a good
one for having quality vendors. Lots of interesting things
to look at. Still an over kill on jewelry booths...
like one out of four.
Traffic is heavy after the bridge goes back down.
There weren't as many vendors and I would say the crowd
was way down from other years.
There was this one artist that I just loved. He had tables
and mirrors made of oak with inlays of leaves. I fell in love
with the ginkgo leaves. The dragonfly at the top was inlaid
mother of pearl. Other leaf types were oak with acorns and
a Japanese scene with cherry blossoms. Just gorgeous and
way out of my price range. Anywhere from $850 for the
mirrors to over $1500 for the tables. Beautiful work.
One of the things I found was this garden statue. It has the
four directions with a whimsical picture for each. I got it
and Aman, my son carried it to the car for me. That thing
must of weighed over 50 pounds! He carried it about two
blocks for me. Gee, thanks for bringing me along mom!
But I bought him a couple of beers for all his hard work,
bless his heart. Tomorrow is for cooking out with family.
These weekends go by too fast.
