Mt. Holly Arts Festival

The Toy Cove is back from an amazing artisan festival in Mount Holly, NC. This was the first year I'd been there, and I wasn't sure what to expect.

Setting up shop in the morning.
Everything was well-organized, and I was able to set up pretty quickly. Luckily, the weather was completely perfect; 75 degrees and sunny all day.

The Black Cats & Kittens were excited and curious:

The Long-Leggity Frogs were ready to leap for joy:

But perhaps most excited were the Baby Leopard Rays, who were making their world debut that day:

"Adopt me!"
 The Sugar Skulls received quite a lot of attention:

And even Angry Ankylosaurus seemed to have a good time. In his own way.

Though, as happy as I am to see them adopted, it's a little hard to see them go.

Adios, mi amigito.
All in all, it was a wonderful experience. The Mt. Holly city employees and festival volunteers were extraordinarily helpful, and the festival was very well attended. I hope I can go back again next year with lots of new little plushies.

Thanks from The Toy Cove!
