The day in Rabbit Hash, Kentucky BrownGrass Festival 2011

Hi everyone and Good Morning!!!
Oh I have still not been to bed even after the loooong day that I had yesterday {July 16, 2011 ~Saturday}.
I was a vendor down at the 2nd Annual BrownGrass Festival 2011 in Rabbit Hash, Kentucky.  The day was perfect weather wise & I am so happy for that!  It was in the low 90's I believe. I did get some sun which I needed...I look like Casper's twin without sun.
So when we got there at 9AM or so to set up all three of us; Eric, Kristin, and myself could not even get the canopy/tent up.  That was a fiasco in itself and was quite comical if you ask me {and anyone who witnessed us trying to get it together for an hour!}.  So we all eventually got everything set up and were all set to sell and dazzle everyone with my cards.   Well that's at least what I wanted to happen.  I made my first sale a little bit  after the event was underway around 12:30 or so in the afternoon.  Then I had a few came and looked over my things and moved on.  I then had second sale about 2 or 3.  I sold a total of 3 cards.  I am pleased that I was able to do that, but I won't lie and tell you that I am not disappointed in that I only sold 3.  I am chalking it all up to being a learning experience.  

The music however, that was another story...It was pretty good!  There were people there performing from all over the country which was exciting to be a part of that!  
So the day was  not a total fail, actually it wasn't even a partial fail...It was all good and I'll leave it 
at that.
I want to share with you some pictures that Eric took from the event...:

I hope you all have a spectacular day today!!!

Take care now!

Sounds like you had a good time despite the poor sales. Eric's pictures are awesome, especially that butterfly. Glad you survived the heat, too!

Christy- those photos really make me miss the Mississippi! Love the truck shot and why is Rabbit Hash, Kentucky a historic place? Inquiring minds want to know.

So Bridget are you going to have me do a book report on Rabbit Hash, KY? LoL!

For Bridget and Christy. There used to be a family that farmed vegetables big time and sent them downriver from here. But they also made rabbit hash for folks flat boating down. The word soon got out, and steamboats started stopping from Losantiville-Cincinnati for lunch. Then they soon built a ferry to cater to folks in Rising Sun. Presto! Fame! Of course all that stopped when the automobile came along (and the rabbits got wise). Hope that helps, from a former 'Ridgerunner' resident of Crittenden / Gardnersville.
