Thrifting and Arts Festival

It is a beautiful day today. Practically a heat wave at 55 degrees. Even had to open up the windows this afternoon to let some cool air in. Just as everyone else had stated we were suffering from some cabin fever. Decided to get up this morning and go out for the day. This morning found us at two of the local thrift stores. Not much to find. Did get three baskets for gift giving at .45 cents a piece, some books, an art book for art study at 2.00, and a ceramic crock with a lid for 3.65 that I intend to hold flour. After lunch we headed to a higher end Arts Festival at The Lodge in Unicoi which is in Helen. Very nicely done. Had about 50 artists including: paper cutting, copper works, oil painting, water colors, doll making, yarn, soap, wood works, and the list goes on. Hubby mainly wanted to check at the venue as a possible festival for him to try next year with his art. He does have two festivals coming up in June, both here in Georgia. It was really wonderful to get out for a while. Now on to some housecleaning. Well, somebody has to do it.

Sounds like a wonderful day! I love thrift stores and art festivals! Glad you are feeling better.

Their is a wonderful art festival called Kentuck Festival here in our area (Northport, AL) every October. If your husband entered we could have a chance to get together. I'm just saying....*Grin*

You should try to sell some crochet items at Scott's fairs at his booth. Bet you'd do well with it.

I wish we had any art festivals nearby ... and thrift stores ... but could do without the housecleaning!
