So far, I’ve been to two Christmas craft shows this year. I’m not all about the shows or shopping. I’m all about going with my mom to “The Stocked Market” in Roanoke, Virginia. I’m pleased and proud that I was born and bred “in the noke”. What’s most important, though, is that I get to spend time with my Mom. Afterward, we have a tradition of going to Shaker’s and eating some of the best onion rings in the world.
Today I went to Richmond’s Bizarre Bazaar and took my mom-in-law, Doris Ray Jackson Banks. She’s 86 and was actually in the hospital last week, but she was determined to go on this shopping date. She was a super soldier through FOUR BUILDINGS of vendors! She is the best conversationalist in the world. Really. A pleasure to spend the day with her.
What about you? Do you have any craft shows that you share with special people?
