Well, we did it. Christmas in July was a major success, and we survived the blistering heat!
I got everything all organized and ready Friday night, while watching the opening ceremonies of course, and then we loaded up the cars and headed out bright and early at 6:30AM Saturday morning. Our booth was on a nice little corner near the main road, so we had a good breeze for most of the day, which was probably was kept was from dying of heat stroke. The booth next to us was a whole little family working together, they were so cute! AND as it turns out, the daughters were in my sister-in-law's English class last year. Such a small world. We had a lot of fun meeting everyone and visiting with out neighbors. Ruffles and Lace did really well, especially considering the heat, and the fact that I don't think the event garnered as much traffic as they were hoping. There were still quite a bit of people, I just think more would have shown up if not for the sun melting our faces off. All in all, it was a fabulous day and a great experience for our first bigger show. We CAN'T WAIT to do another one! We're looking at doing Fair on the Square in October, I'll hopefully have more information about that next week.
Hope your weekend was as great as mine! (even though it's Monday, and I now need a weekend to recover from my weekend) ;)
