Archive for September, 2009

So, its September again. Time for school to start and the mosquitoes to subside although the mosquitoes are just about as reticent to leave as the kids are to return to the classroom.
Anyway, this is the time of year that craft shows abound and the weather is nice enough that people will get out to enjoy the day and attend. This year is a little slow since some organizations that have hosted me before can’t afford to sponsor such events although others can. Attendance should be good with so many people saving money by staying close to home and yet wanting to do something.
So far this fall I will be setting up for Byler’s Country Store 12th annual customer appreciation day on September 19 from 10am to 3pm. Byler’s is 3 miles west of Dover, Delaware on Rt. 8. This years theme will focus on pumpkin and apple flavored food items and activities.
Next, I hope to set up for the Delmarva Friends of Folk Fall Fling on October 3 from 10pm to 5pm. The weekend revolves around live music performance and workshops with craft and food vendors on hand as well as children’s activities through out the day.
Finally, so far, I will be setting up on October 17 at the Autumn in Duck Creek Annual Fall Festival celebrating the town’s heritage and historic homes. Events include, market fair, scarecrow contest, pumpkin painting, chili cook-off, hands-on history activities and more. 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
I hope to be doing more events and I will post these as they come along.
