Well, I don't think that we could have asked for a better weekend to be at an Apple Festival!! The sun was shining, the leaves were beautiful, and the fresh aroma of cider donuts filled the air. In case you missed it this year, I am describing Goolds Orchard 20th Annual Apple Festival!
Dennis and I (Becky) brought Freddy to visit Mom and Nana (Bonnie and Ella) while they were selling our beautiful Jewels! We were in the same tent as last year, but I liked the spot better this year. The set-up that they did was great...I am just mad that I forgot to take pictures of the display!! Freddy was still groggy from his nap, so Dennis and I decided that we would get something to eat and then take him to the pumpkin patch. Freddy didn't like walking in the pumpkin patch all that much because the plants and brush were almost as tall as him!! but he did like picking at the pumpkin stems!
Mom and Nana had a successful weekend, with one exception. You may have seen my Dad, Fred, on Sunday. Mom unfortunately wasn't feeling well, so Dad went in her place. So I should have said Mom, Nana, and Dad had a successful weekend. This is what Mom had to say about the weekend:
"Goold's is a great Festival we have done it for 2 years now and I love it. People looked for us this year which was great. Sales were good. I found that people are more careful of spending their money but still appreciate quality hand crafted goods. Favorite customer: A young lady and her mother who purchased 2 necklaces. One a wrapped trilobite, the other a wrapped ammonite. She had studied them in school recently and the teacher was disappointed that he didn't have examples to show them. I think she is getting extra credit when she wears the necklace to school on Tuesday."
I agree with Mom, this is a wonderful show that we have looked forward to all year, and I know that we will be going back next year. I think that Freddy liked it too (once he woke up a little!).
The FamiLee Jewels will be At The Warehouse this weekend. Our hours are Saturday and Sunday 10-3pm. Hope to see you there!
