Pauper’s Candle Company had a terrific show at the Salem Farmer’s Market Holiday Craft Show in Salem, Oregon. While my husband, son and I were driving to Oregon from Idaho, my husband and I were trying to think how many years Pauper’s Candles had been attending this show. We concluded that it had to be at least 10 years. Hard to believe that much time has passed. I always enjoy seeing those who come each year to purchase their Pauper’s Candle.
This year was especially special because my husband and I had our son with us. And on top of that, my husband and son played in Tuba Christmas in Portland, Oregon on Saturday. My parents offered to run my booth while I buzzed to the show to watch them play, and of course it was raining. Just an aside: My son is just learning to blow the horn, so he watched Dad for fingering and did not blow much. He did get a little prize for being the youngest player there. He thought that was pretty cool. Good memories and thank you Mom and Dad for running Pauper’s booth.
Grandma and Grandpa wanted to spend some time with their grandson on Sunday, so my husband and I ran our booth together. This was fun. We have not run our booth together in a long time. Again, good memories.
After the show we were able to spend some time with my parents and take our son to see the Christmas lights in Corvallis that are now at the local Fairgrounds. While I was growing up the Christmas lights were around the local Pepsi building. Our son enjoyed seeing all the lights and live Nativity. Once again, good memories
The Salem Holiday Show is always Pauper’s last for the year and this year it was a great way to end our show season for 2015. This year has been a great year for shows and making memories.
Thank you to all our customers for a great year! Merry Christmas and we wish you a Blessed New Year.
