|I parked myself and books under a tree.|
Though they didn't have as many vendors as in the past, there were still lots selling all sort of things, goodies to eat, (behind me, the local store was selling Tri-Tip sandwiches and had a long, long line), crafts of all kinds, plants, clothing, yard sale stuff. There were activities for the kids.
I judged a pumpkin decorating contest, and helped judge a costume contest.
While manning my booth, I was visited by old friends I hadn't seen in years, met a Facebook friend I didn't know, and a new mom in town and her daughter bought 13 of my books. Before the day was over I'd sold 18 books all together. Made back the money I'd paid for the space at the event and more.
According to our local newspaper, more than a 1,000 people attended.
I have one more in-person event lined up, the annual two day Holiday Boutique at the Porterville Art Gallery, November 5th and 6th.This one is always fun and a table and chairs are provided. Since it's inside, the weather doesn't matter.
I've also been asked to give a presentation next year at one of the Community Club's regular meetings.
Yes, things are beginning to get back to normal, and I'm loving it.
