LAAFF: Our love affair with Asheville continues

Belle Terre (Julia) blogged about her weekend at LAAFF, Sept 3-4, 2011. Here are some excerpts, to whet your appetite:

And so, our love affair with Asheville continues. This weekend we had the pleasure of vending at the Lexington Avenue Arts and Fun Festival (LAAFF). It was the first time for us, and the 10th year for them. I must say that it was the most fun we’ve had in quite some time. …

We had tons of customers come over and visit and it was fantastic to meet everyone, but one customer, Eliza, definitely stood our for me as a favorite of the weekend.

We met a few new people including… Elizabeth of Bandita Wear.

It rained for a bit on Sunday. That definitely didn’t stop the kids from having fun:

For some reason, there was a collection of rather interesting vehicles. Here’s the Heaven and Hell Car:

There were no dogs allowed, but that didn’t stop anyone from bringing other pets:

For some odd reason, there were a large number of people on stilts.

And oh, the outfits….these almost deserve a whole post unto themselves…

This was just what I was able to catch in between helping customers. I missed most of the music, the bike jousting, the fire throwing, and who knows how many outfits!

…Another amazing Asheville experience. We are already looking forward to LAAFF 2012!
