Down Home Christmas in Malad, Idaho was a fun event. I really enjoy going to craft shows and bazaars. Malad is my hometown, so it is always fun to go back. I enjoy visiting with family and friends I haven’t seen for a while as well as signing books.
Looking for unique gifts is always fun!
There were a lot of great booths at the Down Home Christmas. I was lucky enough to be next to Jumpin High Nubian Dairy Goats. Mitzi and Steve are friends of mine. It was fun to visit with them. This is a great place to buy goats. No, they didn’t bring any goats with them, but they had some really good food made out of goats milk. They also had soap, lotions and other interesting items made out of goats milk. You can find them on Facebook at this link, Jumpin High Nubian Goats. And when you start looking in the spring for a new goat to add to your herd this is a great place to go.
I really liked this booth with lots of hand crafted buildings. I loved this one, the Blue Goose. This was a little store in Samaria, where I lived. I have a lot of fond memories of the Blue Goose.
Handcrafted items you can’t find just anywhere
The craft shows are always fun. They always have good food. There is a variety of handcrafted items you can purchase. If you like to look for unique gifts that can’t be found in the mall or any other store, this is the place to go.
I also had in my booth wax cotton ropes from Hatch Tack. They do custom leather work, saddles and anything you would like them to create. A friend of mine also sent towels with me to add to my booth, and we had scrubbies. And of course, I had all 3 of my children’s books from The Farmers Wife Series. These can be ordered here on my website. It was a great day for selling books.
I had lots of help from my son and daughter in law and my 2-year-old granddaughter. She wanted me to read books to her whenever it slowed down. I loved to read to her. Her favorite book out of the three I have written is “Buffy’s Wish”. She said to me, “Grammy I love Buffy”. Awww Grandkids just make my heart sing!
Unique gifts say “I put a little thought into what I bought you.”
Down Home Christmas is a great place to buy unique gifts. If you missed it this year, watch for it next year.
If you are looking for a unique book be sure and look at the books here on my website. I can customize it for you by signing it.
