Art show in our little town
We live in the beautiful small town of Mt Holly, NC. It is 'in the shadow of Charlotte' They have a way cool downtown, and my husband and I walk there to get coffee at the coffee shop, or an orangeaid (homemade) at Charlies Drugs. We watch the lady behind the counter put oranges in some juice squeezer like they had at soda fountains and adds her special stuff to make an awesome drink. It 'is' a soda fountain, which you don't find much anymore. We walk the few blocks and in the evening the little lights they have in the trees glow. (they are solar) It's a small town near a city. There is a whitewater center nearby to kayak and raft, and the city is building a long greenway system in stages, and it will be 13 (?) or 17 (?) miles of trails to walk and bike from Mt Holly to the National Whitewater Center.
Today I participated in Autumn on Main, selling jewelry from my booth in the fine art show. It was awesome to be in a show that was so close to home, and talking to some acquaintances, and meeting new people. It was a pleasure to be in the show, soaking up the sun (however hot and humid, it sure beats snow!)
I haven't unloaded my van yet, but have enjoyed a nice evening after a great day. Come and visit the show next year, and in the meantime, if you live nearby, check out the 'Artist's Market' in December.
