i enjoy my alone time every now and then.
there were many booths selling fresh vegetables, handmade products, and even live music. there were more people there than i expected. probably because it happened to be an actually harvest festival weekend, not just the farmer's market. i ran into one of ashley's best friends there and she explained it to me. i cannot tell you how refreshing it was to walk around and browse the booths and take pictures and to be able to soak it all in. i've missed my saturday morning farmer's market runs.
i probably could have bought out the whole place. i found some homemade apple butter and handmade jewelry and vintage designed coasters. i wanted to take all of it home. i did take these two lovely treasures back with me and am so happy with. the cupcake was a buttermilk flavor with a cream cheese frosting (yum!). isn't it just so pretty, too? love the frosting swirls. and the darling little owl hairclip is from carolina ribbons - i couldn't resist it when i saw it. it's actually for a friend of mine, i'm just waiting for her to come back from overseas so that i can mail it out to her. *wink, you know who you are.*
and you better believe i was so happy to have found the cupcake booth! i told the cupcake woman my whole life story (i just moved from chicago where we had cupcake shops every and blah and blah! and im just so happy to have found you!) and she told me she was happy that i found her too, giving me all her info on where to locate them. the sweet carolina cupcake shop is still about 40 or so minutes away but its closer to me than my chicago ones!
any other places having farmer's markets during this time of the year? i told someone today that this seems so backwards to me 'cause back in chicago it's way to cold to keep farmer's markets open this late in the year.
hope you had a lovely weekend, friend!
p.s oh, and don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY.
i'm already so blown away by the response with it being my first one and all.
