The PURPLE PAINTED LADY Festival
No TPPL Festival in 2023 ... but Please Save
“Why is there no Festival in 2023?” is the most asked question at the shop. The festival is pretty consuming in thoughts, time and energy. We don’t have a huge planning committee. In fact, most of the behind scenes work is completed by myself and my husband Steve. We started it when our daughter Danni was only 5 years old. And now being her last year of high school and her “last” summer vacation without major life demands and commitments on her as there will be next year… we just want to completely enjoy this time and truly be present. It is for moments like this that happen yesterday that I want to have the head space to really, deeply comprehend, experience and not just hurry by because I have so much else going on and I don’t want to miss the feeling of living this chapter out.
When reality really … really sinks in! I look down and see the red graduation cap and gown peaking out of my daughter’s book bag. A mix of melancholy like emotions flood me. So excited for her, proud of her, and a little sad for the truth that our one on one time as it has been is slowly evaporating in front of our eyes but crystallizing and morphing into something new, truly exciting and cool. It was a just a fleeting second in time with more emotion felt in a typical hour…but one of those life moments that will stay in my soul like a Polaroid snapshot. I am so very proud and happy for our daughter Danni!! An incredibly successful chapter ending and a new one - that will be way more thrilling … is about to begin.
So, please save the dates of Sept. 21 & 22, 2024 for The Purple Painted Lady Festival.
As Arnold Schwarzenegger famously said….. “I’ll be back!”
In the meantime, please come and visit us at our shop located at 2620 State Route 31 Palmyra, NY 14522
We would love to see you there!
Greetings From The Purple Painted Lady!
Welcome to my my front yard! LOL Seriously, how many people can say they had a party for 14,000 people in their yard? This event takes a lot of energy to pull off from many people and we are so grateful you choose to come to it! So, thank you very much for supporting this grass roots festival of artists and vendors. I only invite nice people to come to it because the energy created here is nothing less than magical. You know, a little kindness goes a long way in this world. I want to thank you for choosing to shop local & small by supporting the artists who are here sharing their heart and soul with you. Our world would be a very dull and lack luster place without the artists and visionaries so please shop your heart out! And with that said, we hope you have a great time!
