We had the usual hurry-hurry set up at Holy City Artists and Fleas Show in Charleston,SC, but after we’d set up, it was great. Everyone there was in the mood to show off there finest work. They didn’t stop there. Everyone who came was impressed by the winning personalities of these hard-working men and women who make these events fun for weekend play. We are the Godzilla Prickly Pear Cactus People. You can’t keep us down. Our spirit can’t be killed with a meat ax.
When you read about prickly pear cacti, everyone agrees that they are very tough. Its true, they will survive under many adverse conditions but I grow them for their sweet and fragrant pears. We’re talking jelly here. You can’t get it at the supermarket. Someone has to brave the thorns and make it by hand so people can enjoy.
So it is with the fascinating and eclectic group of people who put on the weekend fairs where you laugh and relax, reconnect with those you love, where you break away from your everyday life. For the lucky and loved, a treasure is happily taken away and remembered forever.
