Simple Truths Designs at Mule Camp festival IN Gainesville, Georgia.

Falling into autumn festivals

Simple Truths Designs is in the middle of North Georgia's fall festival season!

We have just returned from the Mule Camp festival, located in Gainesville, Georgia, held on the square there on October 6-7. And what a time we had! The only downside was that the threat of Hurricane Nate sent most of the vendors home Saturday evening, missing out on Sunday.

It was a blast to meet so many new people, whether vendors or customers. One of the things Marsha and I wanted to do when we first purchased Simple Truths Designs and then launched our own website was to meet new people and serve them with inspirational shirts, hoodies, and tanks that would remind them of the simple truths in life.

What we had not counted on was the overwhelming amount of positive response we would receive from not only the people who purchased from us, but those who simply stopped by our booth to look at our shirts.

It brightened our day to see people respond to some of our new designs, such as the Georgia on my mind and Georgia dawg adult tees, whether in short or long sleeve styles. But the knowing smiles from mothers and grandmothers who saw our new Jesus Loves Me (this I know for my mommy tells me so) toddler and infant tee was the true hit. It was also great to see the warm reception of the tees as people would not only buy one, but then we would soon see them again not only wearing their purchase but also dragging a friend to the booth for another. Even those who did not purchase a shirt remarked on how much they liked the shirts and how reasonable our prices were.

Again, this was only the first of five festivals we plan to attend and we hope people will come out and say hello! We are doing our best to have a supply of our new tees that were such a hit at Mule Camp! Upcoming festivals are

  • Lilburn Daze Arts & Crafts festival, October 14, at Lilburn, Georgia
  • Oconee Arts & Crafts festival, October 21, at Watkinsville, Georgia
  • Braselton Artisan & Antique festival, October 27-29, at Braselton, Georgia
  • Cotton Gin festival, November 4, at Bostwick, Georgia
