We survived our first vending experience...it wasn't bad actually. Everything went pretty smooth. It was the most beautiful weekend, the weather couldn't have been any better. Cool mornings, sunny days in the high 70's to low 80's.
Sales were decent considering they ended up with four of us selling BBQ...way too many. We knew there were supposed to be two of us, that's all. Oh well, I can't let that bother me.
Our booth looked great and functionally, it ran well. Cassy was a great conversation starter and made lots of friends. It's amazing how many folks will stop to say hi to a dog and give her a pat on the head.
Timm did an awesome job cooking all the food. He was on the ball and never lost his cool all weekend. Imade the beans. We had lots of compliments on the food.
Cassy was so well behaved all weekend. Orginally, she was going to stay at the house with Irene's dogs (her momma and 2 step brothers) but she hung out at the festival with us all weekend. She's pretty attached to her daddy you know.
Timm and Chris had built a 3rd rack for the smoker before we left and it got plenty of use. Now that's a full BBQ pit.
We really enjoyed our weekend in Fillmore. It was lots of work, but it was enjoyable. We got to spend time together sharing BBQ with some fine, friendly folk. Thanks to Jim and Irene for their hospitality and sharing their home with us for weekend. We had a great time walking and spending time with the dogs as well.
