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.
Gilmore Christmas Classic, Columbia, SC - Nov 3rd, 4th and 5th
This was our 2nd time in Columbia, and it was wonderful to see many of our fans returning to buy more books. And of course, we mets many new fans as well. I am including some pictures of a fabulous sand carving that was in the show building.
