Southern Festivals


Last weekend Stacey and I had a booth at the Inman Park Festival and Tour of Homes. We have been doing this market for the last seven or eight years. It’s a lot of fun and we always see old friends who we don’t see much otherwise. We also see lot’s of friends we get together with often. We take an ice chest full of beer and food and have a little party. It’s a large festival, they tell me about 30,000 people attend through out weekend. It was a little rainy this year and I think the crowd was smaller than usual.

Inman Park is a neighborhood much like the garden district of other towns. It is instead referred to as a historical neighborhood. You say potato I say tomato. I sold a few paintings, but no furniture. We had a great time and made a few new friends. Except for the lady that thought I was gonna hit her tent with my truck. I was pulling in to the booth area to drop stuff at my booth, backing up my truck. All the sudden I hear someone screaming really loud. Hey, HEY, WHOA, WHOA. I hate being yelled at. So I thought I would tell her so. I got out of my truck and calmly walked up to her and yelled as loud as I could “Don’t yell at me, I see ya, I got two eyes and a big ol’ brain”. She left us alone the rest of the weekend, we did not invite her to the party.

This Sunday we are gonna go down to Serenbe for their May Day Festival. Click on that link and check it out, it’s a really cool place. I have done markets down there a lot over the past two years. I do a lot of sales and custom work for the residents. Last year I built about ten bed/swings for folks there. I have sold lots of art and furniture there as well. It’s a great place for me to pedal my wears, I know tons of people that live there and they refer me to each other often. I’m looking forward to being there as I have made lots of friends over the past two years and haven’t seen most of them for a few months now.
