Avalon’s 5th Annual Hippy Holidays Celebration!
Earlier this month, Nick and I took a Saturday afternoon and went to a local festival hosted by a nearby shop that specializes in spirituality, stones, herbs and other cool Pagan-friendly stuff. They have a really helpful staff, tons of books and loads of neat things to look at! It’s one of my most favorite stores and every time I go there I find something new and exciting to read or experiment with!
This was our first time going to one of their events, and it was a lot larger than we thought it’d be! It took up the whole parking lot and featured several vendors of everything from tye-dye baby clothes and ocarinas to handmade jewelry and even a Henna booth with an experiences artist!
It was so much fun and we really had a great time! So many people were there, and everyone was so friendly and nice the entire time. We picked up a few Christmas gifts for family members as well as some new stones for the two of us and a couple of additional things for my altar. They apparently have a similar festival in the summertime — Weather permitting, we may go next year!
I took lots of pictures — I semi-apologize in advance about my insane overuse of lens flare and film distortion. I downloaded Afterlight and can’t get enough, sorrynotsorry. 😉
Overall, it was an amazing time! I’ve never felt so supported by someone and was so grateful to share the day with Nick and to learn so many new things with him! The shop is a place I’d highly recommend to anyone local — I can almost guarantee you’ll find something in there that you want to take home with you!
