Tulips and Juleps Art and Gift Market Testimonial Tuesday

Another year, another Tulips & Juleps in the books and yet again I went crazy and spent every bit of my planned budget…and then some.

Generally, I am not much of a shopper. Like, at all. I kinda hate it, to be truthful. But every year, I prep for T&J. I set aside money. I look at the vendors’ websites. I plan my day around my own volunteer hours. I set out my lucky shoes (which are coincidentally super comfy). I may or may not listen to Eye of the Tiger before entering the venue.

This year my volunteer responsibilities required me to be in and out a lot…which was perfect for shopping. First I took a long stroll around, wending through each and every aisle.

Then I began. I bought a lavender candle that is supposed to help me sleep (at the very least. it smells delicious) from Graceful Bloom. I bought a cute baseball tee from Doodles by Rebekah that says Kentucky women are made of bourbon and ice.  I bought spices from Dan-O’s Original Seasoning that are low in sodium, yet still tasty. I hit the kitchen jackpot at Love & Fig with pair of oven mitts with a matching apron and some sassy dish towels (I got the last “I got 99 problems but a dish ain’t one” towel!). I am, at this very minute, wearing a delicate gold necklace that I found at RAHK Studio. She also sold me a jewelry polishing cloth that saved another necklace of mine that I thought tarnished beyond saving.

I may or may not have bought more (I definitely bought more). Truthfully, Tulips & Juleps is one of the few shopping experiences that I really enjoy, so it’s something I look forward to each year. I hope you can join us in 2019!!
