It's (almost) Yam Time! We are in a county fair state of mind and have created original graphic tees to celebrate a few of our favorite fall things! The Yam themed shirts have a heifer wearing a flower crown, while that's a picture of my Prize Winning Yam Pie on there, plus a basket of sweet potatoes and leaves that once decorated the Band Stand. We've got other show animals, a Ferris wheel, and a blue ribbon... All items that embody the spirit of the our local fair!
The fair has been a part of our life, since we were a child. From watching the parades from the back of our truck to riding our horses in the parade with 4-H a few years later. Carnival rides on the square, corn dogs, funnel cakes, and then the decorated yam contest when I was in the 4th grade to attending the Queen's coronation pageant the following year.
As an adult, I have made many arm bouquets for the Queen's and Duchesses and helped decorate the band stand. I've also entered pictures in the photography contest and carried out a family tradition, winning the Yam Pie contest in 2010! A picture of that winning pie is included on the shirt.
You can say that the county fair runs deep in our roots! My grandmother and aunts were also a winner of the Yam Pie Contest!
We are currently taking pre-orders for the Yam Time Shirts, to be made in plenty of time to wear in October.
Message me to reserve yours or find them at gypsyfarmgirl.etsy.com (Unfortunately, comments here don't always show up or set up as no-reply, so please email, message on Facebook, or through etsy.)
We are also planning to have some in our booth inside the Yamboree Exhibit Building, October 17-19.
