Going Local-Maiden Fall Festival





We recently participated in the Maiden Fall Festival.
It's a yearly event that takes place at the Maiden Community Center. 
Maiden is a small town between Hickory and Mooresville 
in the Piedmont area of North Carolina.


The weather was cool and overcast
and we set up our daisy tote booth along with about 20 other vendors.
The outdoor event was from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., rain or shine.
A number of craft and food vendors displayed their wares.



This was one of the more unique handmade items being showcased.
Pops Cornhole Boards and Bags is a family-owned business.
This game is quite popular up here and these boards were works of art!
What a great idea for the holidays!
If you are looking for a special gift, 
you can reach them at popscornboards@aol.com.
Tell 'em daisy sent you!



An array of vintage cars and trucks came out to strut their stuff.


The men swarmed around these beauties like bees to honey.


 A large play area for kids was available and at no charge.



 Something akin to a tractor-pull,
this event used lawn tractors to do the heavy work.


 There was no shortage of spectators enjoying the action.


We're hoping to do a few more craft shows before the season winds down.
We did well at this festival,
despite the intermittent rain and eventual downpour
that had us packing up an hour earlier than anticipated.

When you are doing what you love, nothing can dampen your spirits.
