Randolph Arts and Crafts Show 2008

As promised, here's a full report of the Randolph Arts and Crafts Fest, June 14-15. Saturday it rained about 70 percent of the time. My mom (and number one fan) was my companion and cashier. Thanks Mom! Together, we enjoyed watching the people dive from tent to tent for cover. Many gave up trying to stay dry and some abandoned wearing shoes altogether. One person was crusing around on a motorized cooler! Who knew such a thing existed?

Sunday there was sunshine, and since many of the same people come both days, we got to see them all dried out. We yelled out compliments from behind the table on their fresh new look. Sales were down from last year, but gas is twice as much, and I'm trying to fill my tank just like everyone else so that's understandable. Even my little Honda Civic is taking over $40 to fill.

Overall, it was a good time chatting with my mom, folks who stopped by and enjoying yummy lunches from Oregano's restaurant. They took our orders and delivered food right to our tent. My mom's new favorite thing there is the Monto Christo sandwich featuring ham and cheese on warm bread dusted with powder sugar with raspberry jam for dipping. An interesting and completely delicious combination. She let me have a bite.
