Craft Fair

Did I mention I worked Thrs. morning at the Southen Highlands Craft Fair?  I volunteered as a ticket taker.  It was fun, and not that hard.  Didn't see anyone I knew.  Guess my friends don't go to the first 2 hours of a craft fair.  Mmm, wonder what that says about them...

Next Sat is the last Tailgate Market.  This Sat. was beautiful.

Just as I parked, another friend from the pottery studio parked (Tailgate, Black Mountain)

I had actually been entranced by the golden trees in the sunlight.



More golden leaves in the sunlight!

After the Tailgate I went to the Craft Fair again, this time to look especially at all the pottery and clay sculptures.  I think I not only visited each booth, I tried to meet each potter.  And I enjoyed very much those who had time and patience to speak with me about their works.




It truly was like visiting a museum, though crafts don't get shown in most museums.  I really learned a lot from my interactions with the artists, er, craftspeople!

  1. One of the best parts about doing craft shows is getting to talk with interested and interesting people. I'm sure the artists/crafts people were happy to talk with you too.
