After months of planning, sewing, pricing, and a bit of stressing, Mayfest has come and gone.
A cold snap moved through late Friday night which led to a rather chilly (my favorite kind of weather) start to the weekend.
We had no idea what to expect from our first festival. Thankfully, despite smaller crowds because of the weather, we still had a great time.
We ate loads of Kettle Korn. I am not kidding when I tell you that I ate it for breakfast and lunch both days.
We were also spoiled to be near the stage so we were continually entertained by performances like this one from the Vintage Dance Society of Lexington.
We met so many friendly people in those two days. Lots of families with kids our age (fun playdates ahead!), readers of my blog (which is always humbling and odd that people know about me and I know nothing about them), and lots people who recognized my little company from years of selling at local shops.
I was also surprised at how friendly the other artists were at the market. They all seemed to take us under their wing and "show us the ropes".
Mike is the best employee ever.
I am not sure if, or when, we'll do another festival. It definitely posed some challenges with a newborn and finding help with our other 2. I may set up for a few weekends this summer at the Artists Market downtown that happens during the Farmer's Market...but well see.
For now I am glad that its over. Standing on concrete for 2 days straight is quite tiring on the legs.
