43rd Annual Apple Harvest Festival

Hey Everyone! I just wanted to share some pictures I took yesterday at the Apple Harvest Festival located in our little town of Burlington WV. It’s the first weekend in October and it’s a fundraiser for the Children’s home.  There are crafts, flea-market vendors, music,  entertainment and lots of good food. They have amazing Apple Butter and Apple Dumplings. In fact, you can watch them make the Apple butter in huge copper kettles.

 

 

What I’m really excited to show you is the Artisan Village. This was something new this year. Artists of many talents  were able to demonstrate their skills.

Blacksmith.

Unique handmade instruments.

Not sure what to call this…a Carver? He uses a chainsaw to make these beautiful pieces.

This is his work area. A little loud, but very cool to watch.

 

Handmade goat milk soaps, lotions etc.

I couldn’t resist these adorable handmade earrings.

I also fell in love with this gorgeous hand knit beret.
