rain rain go away

I had hoped to post today with a lovely recap of the Renegade Craft Fair from this past weekend. However, this has been a really rough week all on fronts. Earlier in the week Jackson was in the hospital having surgery. He is home and doing well but that was stressful enough.Jackson during our recent trip to the Outer Banks in NC. He just attempted to eat a mouthful of sand.

Then we were all ready for the Renegade Craft Fair when the whole area was hit by big storms. Minutes before we were to leave Saturday morning to set up for the fair, our basement flooded about 6 inches or so. We had so much stuff stored down there. My entire darkroom is in the basement including lots of equipment, photographs, books etc. It is all a mess and I am totally bummed.

Then to top it off we had to sit for two days in pouring rain and then lots of wind. It was pretty awful the first day but Sunday picked up and sales were better. I was pretty amazed that so many people came out to shop, even in the worst weather. We met some terrific people who really brightened our day and made the whole experience worthwhile. So thanks to eveyrone who stopped by, made us laugh, bought a card or two, or just said hello.

Since I didn't get a chance to go around and photograph other booths, I will try to do a roundup of some of the great stuff that I did see.....
