A Beautiful Day in the Park

It was a gorgeous day in Lithia Park for Ashland's annual July 4th celebration.  We arrived around 5:30am and had the booth set up within two hours.  Since this was a craft show, I only brought my repurposed jewelry and a few other small items along.  I had two large tables and three small tables, so set up was a breeze compared to the antique shows.

 There's a creek running through the park just behind my booth.  It was so nice to be able to sit on the grass in the shade all day long.

 This gal can't decide which bow tie to wear. 

 This is me with my friend's daughter Leah.  It was so nice to have them
 there all day.

 Behind the scenes.  Pay no attention to the mess behind the table.  I never travel without my duct tape; it sure comes in handy when the wind starts to blow.  Even though the vendor turnout was way down this year, there was a huge shopping crowd all day long.  Yes!

 This is just across the parking lot from my booth.

 OK, I just had to get a picture of this sign.  These people next to us were selling clothes and rugs.  They snuck this side business in behind their booth, right out on the grass.  Definitely not what I wanted to see next door, but it was entertaining listening in on their "readings." 

  I never had a chance to check out the other vendors, but I did notice these clever creations a few booths down.  Thomas Dyer from Klamath Falls makes these mixed metal sculptures. 

Isn't this mailbox dog adorable?

After a long day in the park, we were too tired to even think about staying for the fireworks.  I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend.

  3. Glad you had a successful sale. If the number of vendors was down, it probably upped your sales even more. :-D

  9. What a lovely setting for a craft festival. Love your booth. Your pattern tissue mannequin is so cute. It gave me an idea for a lingerie mannequin I purchased last year. What product did you use to apply the tissue paper? I just love it.
