Meet Me at the Mistletoe Market

Meet Me at the Mistletoe Market

I feel a little bit like an elf this week as I am scurrying around finishing preparations for my booth at this weekend’s Mistletoe Market. To me it is the beginning of the holiday season here in Middle Georgia and I loved seeing all the great products everyone was selling, visiting with friends and making new ones!

For those of you who don’t live in Middle Georgia, Mistletoe Market is a Christmas marketplace sponsored by the Balvaunuca Club. The club donates their proceeds from the sale to worthy community organizations. In 2011 they gave away $40,000! This year it is being held in its new location in the Miller-Murphy-Howard building at the Georgia National Fairgrounds in Perry on November 16-18.
