Saturday was the last of three consecutive events at
Carolina Inn Holiday Market

The sun was shining brightly (VERY brightly and directly on my booth and me!) for the first hour.
This is where it took place:

All set with lots of goods:


Not great pictures…but you get the idea!
There was LOTS of traffic: all ages, some just looking and many buying. The Inn is a very important part of the life of Chapel Hill and especially on a Saturday evening is very, very busy. I was honored to be accepted here as a vendor.


See that little white something front and center up on the roof/overhang? There were snow “machines” that sent out snow all over the market to make it even more festive!

Here is a neighboring booth with some snow!

It was a gorgeous sunset!


That’s it until after Christmas. Now that the markets are over I must focus on gifts, buying a tree (no, we have not done that yet) and some cooking! Hope you all have a lovely Holiday.




  1. That looks lovely. As does that polka dot scarf with your down coat:) Have a good Christmas Libby.
    P.S. Haven’t decorated our tree yet, although it’s up after an hour of wresting with the tree stand. Every year Hubby says “wouldn’t an artificial tree be easier?”… and every year we decide we prefer our real tree. After it’s securely standing on its own. Ha.

    • Oh Sue: you would note the scarf with the coat! Brought from Italy by daughter. And coat is that Uniqlo jacket everyone raves about and yes, it is fabulous! Comes in a little (6″) bag to roll up. I’m hoping to really test it in London in early March, and use the bag as a pillow on the flight! Post to follow (of course!)
      No, as I said above we haven’t even bought the tree yet! I am seriously thinking of a table top tree this year, if I can even find one at this late date. Off to mall and errands in a while and hoping Monday will mean fewer crowds! Merry Christmas my friend!

  2. Looks like it was overflowing with charm. And “snow”! Please post a photo of your tree.

  3. Congrats on what looks like a great event Libby! Brave to hold it outdoors – cold and possibly snowy? Very festive though. I still haven’t done much Christmas shopping yet – and don’t have the excuse of doing an event like yours! Merry Christmas!

    • Thanks Linda! Yes, it was cold but not as bad as being up where you are! But very festive and fun and I did well. Those shows are exhausting. I actually just bought our mini-tree today so we’re getting there. Merry Christmas to you!

  4. Wow, you have been busy, and your booth looks so organized! I’m so happy with my cards from you they are so cute, I’m sure yours was a popular booth.
    As for your tree, don’t worry, I’ve heard lots of people say that they are downsizing their decorations this year (me included). I wonder if it’s our place in the lifecycle or a random event.
    Merry Christmas.

    • Yes, a little too busy Cyndi! Just logged on here and saw your comment come in. And, see my other comment: I bought a mini-tree today. Stand included, so couldn’t be easier! Now that the show is over I feel I can live again; in fact, was at the mall today and now about to roll out some cookie dough. It all comes at us a bit too fast, right?Hope you and family have a Merry Christmas!

  5. Looks fabulous, well done. I do love Christmas markets, even if I am not out to buy very much, I try to visit as many as possible, the atmosphere, the stalls, the people – it is always so much fun. Merry Christmas
