Valle Country Fair 2 Weeks Away

Two weeks from today!  The Valle Country Fair!

Here are pictures of the site where the fair will take place, just off route 194 South.  As you can see, the trees are starting to turn.  Hopefully, they will be in full color on October 20th.  These fields will be a mass of white tents, cars and lots and lots of people.


In addition to all the wonderful and unique crafts for sale, there is also entertainment, from cloggers to bluegrass music to traditional mountain storytelling.  Some delicious food is available, as well as apple cider, made right there on the fair grounds.



If you are going to be in the Boone, NC area that day, please do visit the fair.  And come see Daffodil Corner and Happy Whosits!



The Big Crafty – T minus 7 days

Daffodil Corner is participating in The Big Crafty on Sunday, July 8 from noon to 6:00 pm in beautiful Asheville, NC.  I am sharing the booth with my good friend and former co-worker, Sue of Happy Whosits

As this, my first craft show of 2012, is a week away,  I thought it might be fun to do a kind of countdown to the big day, describing the activities each day of the last week before the show.  I’ll call today T minus 7.

I checked the long range weather forecast via the National Weather Service website.  Temperature predicted to be around 88, with a chance of scattered thunder storms.  That means dress cool, bring the tent sides, and have plenty of water on hand.  Picked up a case of bottled water while running errands this morning.

This is a good day to check inventory, making sure each item is listed on my inventory spreadsheet.  Any items which fall under CPSIA guidelines must have the “care and feeding” tag, as Sue calls it.  This is a tag which contains an inventory tracking number, date created, content and care instructions.  Each item gets a price tag at the same time.  Lookout dining room table you are about to get inundated.

More tomorrow…
