Willow Valley Fall Fest

Saturday was so much fun!

Beverly and I got a good start
on the day and were set up in
plenty of time.

The organizers gave us an excellent
spot beneath a large, very large willow
tree.

This was great as it meant I did not have to
figure out the canopy. Yay!

This was the view from our stand...




Isn't it gorgeous?

In between the customers we caught up on
the happenings in our lives. Beverly has
given over the business to me since she has
moved so I don't see her very often anymore.

It was so good to be able to chat and
share like old times.

I was disappointed in that last year the tables
were covered and had skirts while this year that
wasn't provided. I had just planned to supplement
and decorate the table tops with some Fall fabric.
Thankfully we had our case with back up
supplies in it and made do. Not what I would have
done if I was expecting to do it.

It did not seem to hurt sales. We did very well.

Around noon we had to consolidate to one table as
all of our Coke candles were gone and many of the
votives and gel candles had been sold, as well.

We were amused at this because last year it was
all about jar candles and we couldn't sell the
votives...you just never know.

Here are just a few of shots of our table.
These were taken later in the day after our
consolidation.






I made a woman very happy by selling her one of
our Coke pillows. I purchased two this week at
a yard sale to draw attention to the Coke candles.
I had one in our display.
She pleaded with me to sell her my pillow.

So I did.

She screamed and gave me a hug.

Too funny!

Its the little things.

Have a great day!
