Fall is the beginning of a busy, busy time for Artistic Icing. I have been working my thumbprints off as I prepare for the upcoming season. I thought I would share a few links and dates of my upcoming events and shows.
First up is my sister's Brand New business, the Red Chair Salon's open house. Sept. 8th from 6pm-8pm. There will be other vendors and lots of fun. I am very proud of her and her accomplishments. She is a very awesome hairstylist who takes pride in her work and loves every minute of creating happy clients with kickin' current hairstyles. Visit her page on Facebook to find out more about - Red Chair Salon
Next is Sept. 16th-18th at the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion - Downtown Bristol, TN/VA celebrates it's rich music heritage with this kickin venue. Off the BRRR page it states "Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion isn’t just a music festival. It’s an infectious, three-day music experience, bursting with creative passion, electricity, and soul. Every third weekend in September, State Street in historic Downtown Bristol, TN/VA is amped to the beat of Appalachia’s past, present, and future. It digs down deep into the roots of traditional Appalachian sound and lifts its branches to new heights–and it all happens in the heart of The Birthplace of Country Music." I am very excited to be a vendor for this event - it is my 1st time and it sounds like it is going to be a blast! For more info about this festival check out their site here ----> BRRR Official Site
Next - in between two huge festivals I have been invited to take part in the annual Bugs & Butterflies Kids Consignment Event. This event takes place in Gray, TN on Sept. 21st-24th from 9am-7pm daily. I will possibly be there off and on at times, but I will have a table set up and you will be able to purchase things even if I am not physically present! You are invited to come out and shop for some AWESOME deals on kids clothes as well! Here is a link to the Bugs & Butterflies Kids Consignment Event's Facebook Page
Lastly I am honored to be a vendor again this year in my hometown favorite - 34th Annual Unicoi County Apple Festival. This festival is held every year, the 1st FULL weekend in October, the dates this year are Oct. 7th-8th from 8am-8pm. The Apple Festival is one of the top events in the South, bringing in more than 100,000 people - filling the streets of Downtown Erwin. The premier two-day event offers something for everyone -- handmade crafts, antiques, entertainment, a large children’s area, a Blue Ridge Pottery show and sale, contests and a smorgasbord of food!
