Gilmore Holiday Market, Charleston, SC - 2018

This show was very different from the others as Joe came as their Santa Claus! We had our booth right next to his chair. What fun we had meeting hundreds of children and selling our books. What a wonderful way to create lasting traditions and memories. These first 3 were taken Friday morning before we opened and then I could not help but include this adorable one with Santa and twins.

Again, this was our first time in Richmond and it certainly was not a disappointment. We bring a library cart to the shows to hold our extra book inventory. So the first pic is of the start of the show and the 2nd is at the end. Again, we sold out of a couple of titles including Believe Again, The North Pole Chronicles!
