April 24, 2009 Feedsack Friday – The Spring Show

This week we’re doing our spring show at Kutztown; we’re lucky because it’s a large show and quite near home. But we’re so busy with it this weekend that Feedsack Friday will necessarily be brief. Still, I could not skip FF altogether, so for today’s post I’m showing a picture of most of the 10 or so feedsacks we found and bought at the show.

sacks from the show

There was a time when we’d find lots of feedsacks at the show, but they’re showing up more rarely and in much smaller quantities than in the past.

I would also have shown a picture of the 20 sacks that we sold Thursday at the show but they’re gone now, and I’ve added more to our display in hopes they’ll also be adopted by new homes. The weather was cool and breezy yesterday, but should be warm and sunny today and tomorrow, perfect for the occasion.

  1. 1.Sad that feedsacks are disappearing from the sales. My dad remembers being a young farmworker in western Kansas one summer – he went to church with his host family and the mother was humiliated that another woman was in church wearing the same feedsack dress. I’m sure that happened a lot in small towns!
