Labor Day is supposed to signal the end of summer . It's also supposed to be time out for linen, white shoes and purses. But, while we have a few cool days ahead (think 78 degrees) basically it isn't really over. There will be more hot days. I remember one Christmas we were able to go outside and play without coats.This lady had her cute puppies inside this netted stroller as she made her way around the BB Festival
This is a replica of the patrol car from the town of Mayberry. There was even a Barney Fife imposter to take pictures with. Since I didn't want to pay $5.00 for a photo, there isn't one of the Fake Fife
For those of you who enjoy antique cars, I'll have about five in my next post
Exotic animals were also part of the line up. In addition to this tortoise there were emu, sheep, goats and camels. There was a friendly debate the last time I was at the bank as to what the camel's hump is made of. It isn't water. It is fat. A camel can go without water for 50 days. When the camel urinates it is syrupy. Before you ask, I don't know if people use it as a food source. Although, the dried camel dung is used in cooking fires.
I bought a pair of silver plated earrings made from a portion of a spoon. The vendor had the pattern, company and year on the tag. This one was made by the William Rogers company. The pattern is Talisman and the year is 1938. She says she goes to estate and yard sales, picks up the pieces and her husband makes the earrings, bracelets, key chains etc. On each one is its history.
This is one of the many weekend markets around the area that sells fresh vegetables, crafts, food and etc.
This lady was kind enough to allow me to take a picture of her hat. By the looks of it she is an avid gardener.
Click on the photo and you get a very clear up close and personal picture of her wares. It's called free enterprise in America . I admire her wares and have no talent when it comes to duplicating them so her pictures are safe with me.
This was one of the three bands located at the Pepper Place market. Pepper Place derives its name from the huge warehouse type building that was once the Dr. Pepper bottling plant. It and surrounding buildings are now overpriced yuppie shops.
That's It ***
