Boktoberfest at Lake Wales this weekend !
Well, Mr. Wind made for a challenging day at the St. Pete Market this past Saturday. Sustained winds along with 30 mph gusts kept us on our toes. We appreciate the hardy souls that came out to support the market and it was great to see all of our vendor friends after the long summer break. Of course, our market day couldn't start without a blip and yup, once again, the belt flew out of the engine while driving down to market at 6 am.....Mitch once again, had to get into his mechanic mode, but got it fixed in time for us to be open to business at 9am....3 times a charm, right, so having gone thru 3 Fan belts, we hope this will be last breakdown !
This coming weekend, we will not be at the market as we are off for one of our favorite new shows, Boktoberfest at Bok Tower in Lake Wales.
We did the show for the first time last year and had a great time. It's only a one-day show but it draws almost 10 thousand people! Part of the allure is that customers get in for free and can save a bundle on entrance fees. The park and tower are beautiful and all of us plant vendors are set up under shady trees in the parking lot.
If you have never been, definitely would recommend this as a great Road trip for Saturday!
After our Bok weekend, we will be back at the Saturday Morning Market on October 22nd. Also, we have the Mt. Dora show coming up in November so stay tuned for news about that.
Hope you all have a great week, looks to be no rain/wind and gorgeous weather so get outside and garden !
