The street light banners are up! We spent a few hours this past weekend at the booth, rearranging and add some new merchandise — gearing up for the Riley Festival. We’ll do it again this coming weekend as it will be our last chance to get things just so before the festival starts on Thursday, October 4th.
Usually, by Tuesday of festival week, you can’t get close enough to J.W. Riley Emporium (where the Vintage With a Twist booth is located) to unload. The city of Greenfield has the downtown area closed to traffic to allow the street vendors time for set up. The street booths are actually set up just off the curb in the areas cars use for on-street parking. Hauling merchandise into the emporium is just not an option.
So, we loaded in quite a bit of stuff, moved things around and got an idea of how much more we need to bring in before the festival. Below are a few photos but I dare say, it will look different again once we make the trip and move things around this coming weekend! We might even have sold some stuff. I’ll post more pictures after we get it all ready to go this weekend.
