(Native American-wolf butter churner?? not this time)
(i am still hitting myself for taking a picture of this but NOT BUYING it!)
Saturday was a big shopping day-I bascialy went though my "allowance" and i have yet to visit my favorite vendors (all on the last stretch on Sunday, especially my very favorite vendor)-at least i know now much i SHOULD bring next year.
Met an overly-excited born-again Christian who insisted on giving me a "diploma" and 3 stones (2 with Jesus and 1 red one for his blood?)...very nice but then wanted a hug...sorry but it is WAY too hot and sweaty outside for that, i won't even grab my guys hand! But before i could say no, he was in full embrace-oh well!
While on the trip i have been doing a little personal shopping for a few people. This is something we are definitely going to do for next year (why not make a small business out of our vacation)! Working on the deets and will posting something in the wrap-up about it.
Here are some of the things i picked up for the people who wanted items:
(my friend Karen for her ice cream shop MotherMoo Creamery)
(for my friend Amy-the levels are for me)
(using this at the shop)
(ice block grabber-thingie...ROCKS!)
(this one house had AMAZING finds, we got a ton of stuff-coming up on a Good Food post!!)
it was nice to see familiar vendors and how their operations were growing-many had added tents, more BBQ stations, just over more-congrats on growing!!
(this vendor added an area where she was boiling soap on site!)
