Adventures in Kerrville

Rain and Mud, two words that best describe the first 5 days of our Villages adventure at the 36th Annual Kerrville Folk Festival. These two words resulted in two nights of cancelled craft sales, low attendance during the entire weekend and lots of fun with mud -both on foot and on wheels!

Unfortunately, sales were not as good as expected because of the impact of “Texas Deluge 2007”, but our beautiful booth stayed dry. Most of the Kerrvers that braved the rain to shop with us were excited to see that Ten Thousand Villages had become a part of the Festival. The other shoppers were glad to find out about our mission and look forward to visiting us in Austin and Houston.

We are happy to be a part of this Texas tradition rain or shine. The Kerrville staff and volunteers have been nothing but the most supportive team of any event we’ve attended.

With the second weekend of the festival on the horizon, we have high hopes for beautiful weather, beautiful people and beautiful sales!

For now, I’ll put my raincoat “on call”.
