The last two weekends have been ideal for outdoor events and I am happy that I was able to take in so many of them!! I am totally bummed that I couldn’t partake in the events that started my birthday month, like the Gallery Hop, some openings, the gourd fest and more due to some minor surgery…but there is always next week right?
During the weekend of the September 19th, I spent a good deal of time in Franklinton for Independents’ Day. On Friday night, I helped out with screen printing at the Alternative Fashion Mob’s booth as they decided how they would run their station for making custom T-shirts to promote Ohio and AFM. Followed by take out from Strongwater and meeting gabbing with a great couple, Loren and Christine who have a relatively new business there in Franklinton…what fun that was!
Then my bestie came to visit on Saturday and we spent our afternoon and early evening there. So many great vendors, good food, fantastically divergent music and dinner at Strongwater (have I said how much I love that place???) Once we quenched our thirst and hunger, we headed back out to watch the AFM”S fashion show featuring 9 local designers and their unique fashions. I sure feel lucky to live in a city that cultivates such divergent independent artists, musicians, businesses, restauranteurs and more!
