The craft fair!
Every year there is a fair held in Bell Buckle (a teeny tiny town located about 20 minutes from where I live) where people from all over set up booths and sell their handmade goods. Clothing, jewelery, candles, art... you name it, they got it. They also have huge booths set up devoted to selling delicious food and huuuuge cups of lemonade and sweet tea.
Well, that used to be the case.
Zach and I were pretty excited to check out the craft fair this year. He is from Chapel Hill and has never been. I don't know what happened this year. I can only hope that most of the good booths were gone already because we went on a Sunday rather than Saturday... but there were hardly any handmade goods to be found! Most of it was cheap wholesale jewelery and purses. I did manage to find some cool booths, like the one I pictured above that sold a ton of different teas. However, most were full of fail and we ended up heading over to one of the many cool antique stores around the area. Basically, we payed five bucks to park and visit the same stores we go to all the time.
Such a shame. Hopefully they get it right next year!
