Fall Festival

This past Saturday my town had it's annual Fall Festival. They have crafts, food, antique cars, lumber jack contest, games for the kids, and music. It is an all day event. A friend of mine and I had a booth in it this year. This is the first year I have been in it in years!

Below is a picture of me and the baby booties, hats, and bonnets I had for sale.
Here is a close up of my booties and hats.
This is a picture of my two Christening sets I had for sell. I sold both of them to a lady who goes to my church. Her daughter-in-law is having a baby girl in late February.
In the upper part of this picture you see some ribbons that my friend made. She embroidered the different school logos on them. Also there is a bonnet I crocheted. In the lower part of the picture are some little Japanese bags I made to sell.
These are some scrub tops and little pajamas my friend made.
These are some pillowcase dresses my friend made.
Here are some jumpers, diaper bags, blankets, bonnets and little slips my friend made.
This is one side of our booth. It is my friends canopy and "Sew On & Sew Forth" is what she calls her business.
We did not sell very much stuff, but we had a really good time seeing and talking to lots of friends that we don't normally see very often. The crowds just weren't very big. In the past few years the fair that comes to town yearly has been coming the week of the Fall Festival and a lot of people go to it. I really wish they would schedule it in October like they used too!

Amber and Keith spent the day with me at the festival. Keith actually sold a pair of baby booties for me! I had gone to get us something to eat and left him in charge. He said a lady told him she did not have any babies. He told her they make great gifts and so she bought a pair! I was so proud of him!

Goodness your goodies are so cute. I tried to do this once and just could not get a hang of it. I would love to learn how to make a blanket...simple way...

Just visiting and really don't know how I got here but glad I did.

You and your friend had some lovely things to sell. Your booties and baby hats are adorable!!! Next time I have a granddaughter on the way, I will buy several pairs and some hats to boot! So cute and beautiful craftsmanship (at a very reasonable price). It looks like you had a fun day with beautiful weather!
