Craft Show this weekend

We are leaving today to work a craft fair for the weekend, Will be in Charleston West Virginia for the annual Capital City arts and craft fair. Show has been going on for about 30 years or more, We worked it for about 15 years and then stopped for a few years, Decided to return this year since we did not do the show in Gatlinburg Tn, in October.

This show is run by the Charleston chapter of the Lions Club with is a wonderful group that does a lot of Charity work. Great group of men who are all volunteers run the show. I think we have about 200 exhibitors. We will be open Friday evening, all day Saturday and Sunday.

We live about 100 miles so we will be staying in a motel for the weekend. Decided to travel today as we pull a 16 foot trailer and are suppose to have sleet and snow in the morning, Sure don't want to be on the road with bad weather.

The pictures are from a past show. My website is mostly shabby chic but you can see from the pictures we paint a lot of different items, My booth used to be all holiday items with something for every holiday. We have only worked one show this year and will have one more weekend show for just three this year. The packing and unpacking gets harder as we get older.
Darrell and I were just talking last night of how we use to work the shows and leave one on Sunday and drive all night to get home. No more of those days.

I'll get some new picts, to share with you next week when I return.

I will miss Pink Saturday this week, so Catch you next week.

I looks GREAT!!!! Hope you have a fun weekend, (throw in a little relaxation time, will ya?). When you do shows you have to appeal to everyone and it looks like you've got it all covered. Good luck!
