Thanksgiving at Berkeley
I participated as a vendor at this past weekend's Virginia Thanksgiving Festival, held annually at Berkeley Plantation in Charles City, Virginia. Berkeley Plantation was the inspiration for the plantation, Wellington Cross, in my historical romance series, so I was thrilled to be able to participate in this. I sold and signed my books while enjoying the sights and sounds of the festival, including singing, Chickahominy Indian dancers, watching kids play in the corn maze, and eating Thanksgiving dinner in a cup. It was my first time at this festival, and my station was between two other women entrepreneurs, one who sold jewelry and dream catchers, and another one who sold scarves and painted henna tattoos on people's hands. It was a beautiful day and I hope to participate in it again in the future.
