the handmade market and the rest of the week...

Wow, it has been a weird week.

A crazy storm system hovered over Western North Carolina and dumped over 6 inches of rain which caused all sorts of problems. Flooding, mudslides, and also of the cancelling of The Big Love Festival which we were supposed to vend at on Sunday. I was relieved that we didn't have to vend in dangerous weather.... but it was a huge disappointment nonetheless because we usually do really well at it. Then, yesterday mudslides took out 4 of the 5 roads to leave our house, and the mountainside above us started to look unstable as well. If there had been a mudslide most likely it would have trapped us in by covering our road or taken out the yoga studio or my studio and not our houses... but I still felt uneasy all day. All seems to better now, albeit very muddy. We have heard that our main route to town will be closed for six weeks while they fix the road.  We are planning on camping at The LEAF Festival this weekend, but if we do it is going to be a very soggy weekend!

Last Saturday I drove solo to Raleigh NC to vend at The Handmade Market. I met some wonderful customers at the show and even got to squeeze in seeming some friends on the side. Here are a few glimpses of that show:
my next booth over neighbor: Paige Puckett Pottery
I hope everyone else is having a nice week!
